Work + Life

Second Home is the place where entrepreneurs and creative businesses come together, in the pursuit of great work.

We understand that great things happen when different people, ideas and industries are brought together, and we believe in the power of intelligent architecture and curation to change the world around us.

In the words of Winston Churchill, "First we shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us."

Our community.

Second Home provides beautiful private studios for creative companies, as well as tranquil space for individuals and small teams to flourish.

Companies based at Second Home include SurveyMonkey, TaskRabbit, Artsy, Foursquare, General Assembly and Blue State Digital, creative agencies such as Fueled, Visualise and Rooster Punks, and homegrown innovators like Kovert Designs, Chineasy and Santander’s new £100m fin-tech fund.

Our building has been designed by the award-winning Spanish architecture practice Selgas Cano, who have created a stunning environment for collaboration and creativity.

Selgas Cano have been selected to create the Serpentine Gallery pavilion in 2015.

Our architects have harnessed the latest insights from evolutionary psychology and biophilia - and as a result, Second Home is full of fractal complexity and diverse textures.

There are barely any straight lines anywhere at Second Home, over 600 different mid-century chairs and lamps, and over 1,000 plants and trees inside our building.

There’s nowhere like it anywhere in the world.

Our in-house restaurant - Jago - is run by the
former head chef of Ottolenghi in Notting Hill, and serves sublime food and drink at breakfast, lunch and dinner - and all the times in between.

Jago also provides delicious refreshments for meetings, private dining and events at Second Home.

Second Home is based in Shoreditch, in the heart of London's creative and technology cluster.

Liverpool Street, Whitechapel, Aldgate East and Shoreditch stations are all a short walk away.

Leading creative agencies in the area - including Wieden+Kennedy, LBiDigitas, Albion, Poke and Unruly Media - are all Community Members at Second Home.

Our stunning auditorium plays host to a world-class programme of live music, talks and film screenings.

Recent events at Second Home include a lecture by the Harvard biologist Edward O Wilson, live performances by Kindness and Last Night In Paris (in partnership with Dazed & Confused), and collaborations with the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Wired Magazine and GoogleX.

Second Home is proud to support the London Living
Wage, and we are committed to employing local
young people through Hackney Community College's apprenticeship scheme.

We also use 100% green energy throughout the building, supplied by Ecotricity.

Second Home is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
