Located in Hackney, one of the most popular neighborhoods in London today, Second Home’s new coworking and innovation branch addresses its context and its program in two ways: through the facade and through the work atmosphere, respectively. Inspired by the aviary of Cedric Price, the facade is clad with a highly technological and lightweight ETFE veil that generates a unique image, refined and carefree at the same time. The atmosphere creates a space of illusion able to transcend, thanks to its special singularity and changing features, the monotony of everyday activity. This space of illusion is supported by the subtle relationship between interior and exterior, enhanced by the bright and chromatic nuances produced by the ETFE membrane, and also by the design of a light, organic, and casual workspace that encourages impromptu encounters among professionals of different fields, and, therefore, creativity.
