Barley Mow Centre, Chiswick, London TILT Architects
[OFFICES] Case study 4
Club Workspace, a fast-growing network of creative co-working clubs, has opened two new sites in London, Barley Mow and Enterprise House. TILT’s involvement in leading and implementing the design for the spaces is a natural fit as it is a co-working specialist and its involvement leads on from a consultation role for the previous three sites. Designing in parallel, TILT has exclusively designed both the spaces and the furniture within them, creating elegant co-working hubs that combine fixed and touchdown workspaces to appeal to freelancers, start-up entrepreneurs and nomadic workers.
Barley Mow is located in Chiswick, West London. There is a raised landscape of stairs inspired by a theatre auditorium, designed as both a touchdown meeting and working space, and the centrepiece for the club’s evening transformation into a screening and presentation venue. Like Enterprise House, Barley Mow includes a range of TILT furniture: Fruit&Nut Tables, previously used in The Hub King’s Cross; LeafDesks; Firewood Table; and Festival Chairs, created for their Festival Village project at the Southbank. Two new TILT products appear for the first time at the new Club Workspaces, the Suitcase Desk and the Open Book.
