It’s baffling to think that in the middle of the chaos that is Hollywood, there is a tropical oasis where you can get away and get work done. That is essentially what Second Home is, which as its name implies, looks to offer a solution to the toil of the work-at-home model of shifting from your couch to bed to table.
Founded in London in 2014, the co-working space has since expanded to six global offices — adding Lisbon and Los Angeles under their belt. The latter space is just a stones throw away from the Los Feliz and Silverlake neighborhoods and offers two acres of space, including shared and private offices, a restaurant and bar, as well as event spaces and 6,500 plants — completely removing you from your sense of the nearby traffic and dudes dressed up like Thor and Spider-Man.
Built with sustainability in mind, each workspace — be it the garden studio that look straight out of a sci-fi film, the upstairs terrace and courtyard or the many communal offices on the ground floor, each possess its own aesthetic charm to encourage clarity to help the creative process. There are a number of programs exclusive to members, including all the basics such as high speed WiFi and printing services, as well as wellness centers offering guided meditation, soundproof phone and conference rooms, complimentary coffee and organic tea, along with event spaces that have hosted talks by the likes of filmmaker David Lynch and DJ sets by Andre Power of Soulection.
“We give entrepreneurs the tools and connections they need to break new ground and grow,” wrote a release by Second Home. “We’re also proud to take part in various initiatives that strengthen the communities we love and call home.”
