Second Home London Fields

Launching late summer 2017

In late summer, Second Home is creating the most magical and ambitious working environment in the heart of London Fields.

Second Home London Fields will be the city's most family-friendly working environment, featuring a soundproof creché, a reading room and secluded breastfeeding areas to enable working parents to be more productive, more successful and happier at work.

Every aspect of Second Home London Fields has been designed to grow businesses faster, support creativity and entrepreneurship. We have taken inspiration from Thomas Heatherwick's groundbreaking studio to combine privacy and communality in the most amazing way.

The building is the first project in the UK for award-winning Spanish architects Estudio Cano Lasso, and continues Second Home's dedication to biophilic architecture - filled with natural light, hundreds of plants and trees, plus stunning spaces for wellbeing and collaboration, including a seasonal rooftop bar.

The teams at Second Home are some of the most innovative in London.

We carefully curate a community of diverse industries and disciplines – from fashion and design, to financial services and technology.

80% of our members are chosen because they contribute to the diversity of our community – by being at the intersect of different fields, or belong to an underrepresented industry or demographic.

The remaining 20% are picked because the work they do is helpful for companies as they scale, contributing to the success of the overall ecosystem.
