uncommon had just opened a new workspace just around the corner from the famous borough market. they wanted to hold an event to showcase this exciting new space to its current members, investors and potential new clients. the purpose of the event was to highlight the stunning facilities of this new complex along with uncommon’s values of providing work spaces that make you feel good, so you do better.
the event was an evening reception held at uncommon’s new borough office. a unique journey was created for all guests to follow so they could enjoy and see the full potential of this space. as guests arrived they made their way up to a roof top terrace were they enjoyed a cocktails and selection of canapés, a stunning place to start with sweeping views across the city of london. then in 20 mins slots guests were collected by the uncommon sales team and began their journey around the building. the first stop was a fragrance experience were guest could learn how smell affects their everyday life, tying into the scents which you experience in uncommon’s buildings which are strategically placed to help create focus, creativity and relaxation. the group then moved onto a gin bar where guests could have fun pairing the spirit with their own botanicals, garnishes and tonics. a cool relaxed experience to showcase the social aspect of working in a communal space. the next stage was a mindfulness sanctuary which just a 10 minute session on how to provide yourself with some headspace when stressed or distracted at work through combination of breathing, stretches and centring oneself. this section of the journey really highlighted the uncommon’s ethos of providing a space which is healthy to work in and which makes oneself feel better. at the end of the journey guests made their way into a large lounge and bar space where sumptuous street food was served, DJ played and refreshing drinks were served were guests could let their hair down enjoy the rest of their evening.
