Co-working in St Albans

St Albans is a great place to live and work. Many who live in the St Albans and Harpenden areas do the easy commute to London but more and more of us are home working or looking for co-working spaces to use. One co-working space in St Albans has recently been nominated for a prestigious design industry award. BubbleHUB on Stonecross is in the running for the Interior Design - Corporate & Commercial prize at the 2019 London Design Awards.

BubbleHUB co-founders Benn Latham and Harry Dougall bought The Old Pumphouse in St Albans 2018 and, following a six-month period of extensive renovation led by interior architecture and design firm, align, the BubbleHUB was born. The co-founders are really excited to have their project in this award category. The award celebrates innovative interiors in the commercial sector and the winner will be announced on October 10th hopefully another award to put St Albans on the map as a great place to live and work.

Benn Lathan says their intention was to create a "beautiful, unique, eclectic" space that offered a relaxed, collaborative environment.” The building has been fitted to a high-specification, sensitive to the building's history with sustainable credentials, it features two private phone booths, a bar area, coffee machines, kitchen, a bookable meeting room, 17 permanent workstations and 20 hot desks across two floors, as well as "the best Wi-Fi in the area". Benn also said: "We love the finished building. It is beautiful - every area has distinctive interesting features arising from both the building fabric and the design. 

The definition of co-working is when people assemble in a neutral space to work independently on different projects or in groups on the same projects. It’s different than a typical office workspace because the people in a co-working environment generally aren’t working for the same company. It offers the same amenities you would find in a traditional office, along with a lot more. Look out for BubbleHUB in St Albans.
