Ennismore, the owner of boutique hotel brand The Hoxton, has announced the launch of a new shared workspace venture that will first debut in London with the opening of The Hoxton Southwark in September.
Working From_ is a new venture ‘inspired by the needs of locals using The Hoxton’s open-door lobbies for 13 years’, since the brand launched to market in 2006 in Shoreditch.
The roll out of the new concept will begin in October at The Hoxton Southwark – the brand’s third London property – and The Hoxton Chicago, which opened in April this year.
Designed by Ennismore Design Studio, Working From_ will offer a range of membership options, and will be open all day and all night to cater for an array of workers.
A number of perks will be available to members, from ‘mates rates’ hotel rooms, free guest passes, a pantry full of snacks and full stationery cupboard, unlimited meeting room access, printing and the change to take advantage of one of the hotel’s bedrooms for a ‘duvet day’.
The Hoxton Southwark will be one of the first to pioneer the new concept. Launching in October, the new hotel will ulitlise six of its floors for the new Working From_ brand, offering 744 desks, five meeting rooms, a wellness studio, winter garden and quiet booths.
Local fitness partner, The Refinery E9, will curate the programming in the wellness studio, running daily classes, including yoga, mindfulness and meditation, while YCN will curate weekly member events programme designed to inspire and enrich professional development, through a series of free talks and workshops.
Additional facilities include showers, lockers, bike storage, and a members’ cafe which will offer healthy desk-side lunch delivery.
