New uses: coworking at London Clerkenwell’s Church

Which urban tribe surrounded but did not go inside Saint James Church?


This London neighbourhood is rich in designers and creative people. Their strong commitment with design is not only because they have their own design week, but it has one of the higher densities of showrooms, architect studios per sqm.

Andrew Baughen, church vicar, found the inspiration as he was visiting New York public Library. The feeling of being welcome got him from the very first moment. An inspiring space, with history and a good wifi connection was provided.

The coworking’s phenomena is catching even in temples, sacred places, which also need to reinvent themselves. We celebrate this initiative that provides a space to work, meet and where different venues take place related to design and spirituality, which are not necessary on bad terms with each other.
