Our plants and trees make our campus an oasis for you to work and play. As well as making the air cleaner, they also attract local wildlife like hummingbirds, butterflies and even a family of possums.
It’s human nature to want to connect with living things. Being surrounded by life is a much better for your physical and mental wellbeing - it makes you more productive and creative.
Unlike many other offices, there’s no recirculated air in our garden pods. Enjoy working in safer conditions - a place where the air is completely replaced every two minutes with fresh, clean air.
Our garden pods are secure so you have the freedom to come and go as you like. When you're not there, lock the door for complete peace of mind. And should you ever lose your key, we replace it for free.
We use Hospital-grade MERV-13 air filters to catch any airborne viruses or bacteria.
Our desks are made from corian. It’s non-porous, hygienic, and is the material used in healthcare facilities. And it comes as standard in all our garden pods.
We have high standards. That's why our pod roofs have the lowest carbon footprint of any material used in LA.
Academic studies from around the world show that being around nature makes us healthier, happier and more productive.
That’s why our architects have used award-winning biophilic design when creating the garden pods - so you’ll work bathed in natural light, surrounded by plants and with architecture that mimics nature.
All of our garden pods feature cross ventilation. You can open the window for added fresh air - whenever you like.
We care deeply about sustainability.
That’s why we got Cross Laminated Timber scientifically tested and approved by the City of Los Angeles.
Now everyone else can use it too.
Good genetic and biological diversity is essential for pollination. Without it, we’ll have no crops, which means no food. That’s why we have so many different plants at Second Home.
By filling our site with diverse plant species, we’ve created pollinator-friendly spaces. This helps to keep the local pollinator community diverse, healthy and beautiful.
What’s more, the plants have all been chosen because of their drought resistant qualities too – perfect for the LA sunshine.
Why is our campus so colorful?
Because the natural world is full of color. It’s a part of life.
Research has shown environments that share characteristics with the natural world tend to be better for our health than typical modern buildings.
Grey buildings are the opposite of the natural world – that’s why they’re bad for us.
It’s why we’ve created green spaces, used natural materials and lots of yellow to give our spaces a vibrant, strong and energetic feel.
Our standalone garden offices are a private sanctuary.
If you want to work, safe in the knowledge that what you’re doing will stay hush-hush, our trees and plants not only offer a great view, they also give you privacy. But should you require more, screens and curtains can be installed.
Your office doesn’t stop at your front door though.
The space is designed to encourage chance encounters and creative collisions between members.
It’s the perfect mix of communality and privacy – great for getting stuff done and being inspired for your next big idea.
We want our members to feel healthy and happy at work.
That’s why we created this oasis – natural materials, bright colors and filled with 6500 trees and plants that clean the air.
So when you’re here doing your thing, you can rest assured knowing that you’re safe.
Your office doesn’t end at the door to your space.
When you step outside, there are two acres of beautiful space to roam.
With thousands of plants and trees, a wellness garden, a rooftop terrace, a courtyard, a bookshop and an on-site restaurant, there are lots of places to work and collaborate – inside and outside.
200 volunteers and over 700 tonnes of soil and vegetation turned an asphalt car park into LA's densest urban forest.
Our roofs have the lowest carbon footprint of any building material. To make this happen, we got Cross Laminated Timber scientifically tested and approved by the City of Los Angeles. Now everyone else can use it too.
Our rainwater and irrigation recapture system stores up to 35,000 gallons of water in an underground tank. And the majority of our plants and trees are drought resistant, which further reduces water consumption.
The 112 different plant species on our campus boost biodiversity. This has seen us joined by hummingbirds, butterflies, squirrels and even a family of possums.
Our garden offices are fully customizable. If you want to make them unique to you, we’ll make it happen. Tell us what you need and leave the rest to us.
