The Living Room at IQL: Free Coworking Space London
At IQL, we encourage people to work where they feel most inspired. And we believe this extends beyond those who work in our buildings, to the wider Stratford community.
Our recently completed Living Room is a multi-use, free coworking space. It’s outdoors but sheltered to encourage people to sit and work, hold meetings, catch-up with colleagues or just get a change of scenery within the working day.We are also encouraging the general public to explore the Living Room’s use as a space for creativity and inspiration, whether you’re using it to host a group workshop or a live performance.
The free coworking space seats 30 people and is equipped with power sockets, lighting and WiFi so you can be just as connected as you would be indoors.
The space was a collaborative project designed by four architects: Alicja Borkowska and Iris Papadatou of YOU&ME, Oliver Cooke and Francis Fawcett. Their first collaboration after studying together earlier in their careers.
You can expect tiered seating and at the centre a 7m collaborative timber table with swing out stools. This is surrounded by more seating and cosy seat niches where people can sit and look out at the wider development through a space in the back of the structure.
The free coworking space is designed for general use on a drop-in basis but you can also book the space for specific group events. If you would like to do this, please contact the IQL Estates Manager, Charlotte on [email protected]
