Interxion LON2 – Brick Lane

Screen Shot 2016-07-15 at 09.36.02The third of Brick Lane’s data centres, Interxion LON2, was opened in 2013 and is effectively an expansion of the company’s LON1 facility, 50 metres away.

As with LON1, this data centre was difficult to recognise from street level, it was only by looking at Google Maps that the location of the data centre became obvious, due to the roof mounted cooling units.

Part of the old Truman’s Brewery, the building is on a tight urban site, with an understating entrance beside a record shop. This entrance does conform to data centre aesthetic rules and has no exterior sign and utilises reflective glass.

The building was converted into a data centre by BHP design, that added two additional storeys to the building to accommodate additional data hall space and associated plant. Those two extra stories can be seen from Brick Lane in the image below.
