When we first opened our doors in 2014, we set out to do things a certain way.
This included balancing purpose and profit. Meeting the highest social and environmental standards. Why? Because it’s the right thing to do.
Our hard work has been recognised and we’ve joined an exclusive list of like-minded companies.
We’re very proud to be B Corp Certified, and we’re committed to using business as a force for good.
We’re committed to supporting people, brands and businesses that are doing good, which is why we have special membership rates for other B Corp businesses. Book a tour or speak to our membership team to find out more.
At Second Home, we’ve always stood for adaptive reuse of existing buildings.
With 40% of carbon coming from building, we find it’s better for the planet to do makeovers rather than start over.
Why would anyone choose energy that harms the planet when they can use energy that doesn’t?
We only use energy that’s renewable. So when members join us, they do too. Win win.
Second Home is built on reusing materials. Why? Because it’s better for the environment.
From our properties, to the materials we put in them, we’re building a better future.
The roof on our Lisbon space opens at night to let cool air in. Our pipes then run cold and hot water under the floor to keep the space cool in summer and warm in winter.
We’ve always made it easy for charities and not-for-profit groups to be part of the Second Home community. Our Charity Membership is free to apply, and gives meeting room credits, a monthly complimentary Studio Day Pass, unlimited cultural event tickets, and a discount at our bookshop Libreria. We also offer charities a discount to all our regular memberships. Get in touch with our membership team to join.
It’s our way of supporting businesses that want to make a positive change in the world.
There’s more to Second Home than a co-working space.
We hold regular events to promote diversity and equality. Take our Libreria Language Labs, for example. With our bookshop Libreria in Spitalfields closed on Mondays, we partnered with ELATT, a charity which seeks to develop skills through training, to enable migrants living in Tower Hamlets come together to learn practical language and literacy skills.
By continuing to do this, hopefully we can inspire people and give them confidence.
We understand it can be tough starting out – we did it once. That’s why we’re giving something back.
At Second Home Clerkenwell, we’ve created a hub for innovation by teaming up with Accelerator Programmes to offer their graduates free roaming space. They’ll even receive special rates if they decide to take out other memberships in the future.
Today’s graduates can be tomorrow’s leaders with a little help and we want to be part of making that happen.
