  • Industry Coworking,
  • Fathom Architects was tasked with conceptualizing a space that would give workers an attractive environment at the 6 Babmaes Street Coworking offices in London, England.

    The imaginative retrofit of a disused 1970’s building has created a standalone social space as a relaxed environment for events, collaboration, networking and wellbeing activities for use by the client’s office customers in St James’s.

    Celebrating the raw concrete shell of the existing building and combining it with finely crafted interiors has created a characterful urban sanctuary with a variety of spaces for people to connect and re-charge.

    Design inspiration was taken from the heritage of St James’s as well as art and furniture from the 1970’s, with commissioned rugs, paintings and murals drawing on geometric shapes and bold colours.

    Spaces include a wellness studio (doubling as space for exhibitions or pop-up events), banquette seating booths, meeting rooms, dining spaces, lounge areas and a roof terrace with planted screens and festoon lighting.

    Connections to nature, tactile finishes, a mixture of vintage & contemporary furniture and bespoke artwork by local artists combine to create a calm and welcoming atmosphere as an alternative to a conventional office setting.
