The built environment

As Winston Churchill put it,
"First we shape ours, thereafter they shape us."

Our award-winning architects Selgas Cano have used advanced materials to create a stunning environment that supports wellbeing, creativity and productivity in an unprecedented way.


Second Home's architecture is inspired by cutting edge research into 'biophilia' - and as a result it doesn't have a single straight line, and features over 1,000 plants that are fed by an advanced hydroponics system.


Second Home has a stunning 120-seat auditorium featuring films, live music and events with leading thinkers and entrepreneurs. On 4 November, for example, the world's greatest living evolutionary biologist, Professor Edward O. Wilson, will be delivering a public lecture on 'biophilia' at Second Home.

Over 20,000 people attended the cultural programme we hosted in our empty building before construction work began, which included the London Contemporary Music Festival, Sofar Sounds, Ping Pong Fight Club, Digital Sizzle and a Dazed & Confused music video with FKA Twigs.

Beautiful City

At Second Home we are working hard to adhere to the ancient Athenian oath: we should leave our city more beautiful than we found it.
