LAB Miami Expands Into a Larger Wynwood Building

In the short amount of time LAB Miami's been around, it's drawn quite a bit of attention -- and not just because it's housed in one of the trippiest buildings in Wynwood.

"Signed our lease in April and officially opened our doors in June of 2012," said Daniel Lafuente, cofounder of LAB.

LAB, which opened in June 2012, bills itself as "a community of entrepreneurs, artists, freelancers, startups, and change-makers who share space and ideas." It's is a place where one feels welcome immediately upon walking inside. So it's not surprising that within a month of opening its doors, LAB had already reached its membership capacity of co-workers in the building's 700 square foot space. But now, says cofounder Daniel Lafuente, the creative community's ideas and like-minded individuals need room to grow, so LAB has relocated and plans to welcome more LABRats (their endearing term for members) than ever before.
