Fathom Architects spearheaded the conversion of a disused 1970s building in London into 6 Babmaes Street, a new social concept and coworking space. The venue’s interior design draws inspiration from the art and culture of the 1970s as well as reinforces nature.

“We wanted to create something that felt homely in nature, rather than like a traditional workspace,” says Fathom associate Harry Godfrey. “Creating a balance between functional workspace and a domestic aesthetic was a success in this project. We also wanted guests to feel curious, exploring the different spaces and starting to appropriate them by finding their own favorite nooks to enjoy.”

The design concept is brought to life further with the use of tactile finishes and a mix of vintage and contemporary furnishings. Bespoke works by local artists also instills a sense of calm—providing a contrast to conventional office environments.

On the first floor, the informal coworking area is lined with sage green banquettes and illuminated by natural light via a continuous rooflight. A series of rooms wrapped in textured glass and timber screens accommodate formal meetings, while dual phone booths are characterized by geometric patterned cork tiles.

A convivial lounge, populated by an array of seating configurations installed atop oak-stripped floors and large rugs, spans the second floor. Sliding timber, glass partitions, and an open kitchenette also characterize that level.

Finally, the third-floor rooftop is equipped with high and low seating, a separate meeting room, planted screens, and festoon lighting. 6 Babmaes Street also comprises a wellness studio that doubles as an exhibition and pop-up space.
