Our ambition

We are guided by our three pillars

Professional compatibility

We really get what people want. And we understand that it changes. Spaces alive with possibility, with all the good stuff that helps us all do great things. Right place, right energy 

Emotional intelligence

We play as one team: We build human connection, Investing in our team’s potential to really understand how people think. To know exactly what’s expected, then give so much more. Every. Single. Time 

Inspired purpose

Everyday we’ll take action towards a better future. We’ll work so hard, with such belief, that doing the same will be irresistible. When we all feed off a shared optimism, our impact will rocket. 


Highbury & Islington acquisition

A unique, charming building within the green neighbourhood of Highbury. It was the first Uncommon location we opened to our members. Did you know it was previously a book bindery?


The Carlyle Group & Blackstone investment

Securing an investment of £300 million from world leading private equity houses, allowed us to focus on further growth of the team and the Uncommon brand.


Fulham & Borough acquisition

A year later, we acquired additional assets in South & West London, expanding rapidly and trippling our memberships.


Liverpool Street acquisition

Located in the heart of the City and featuring a stunning roof terrace, our Liverpool Street location quickly became a favourite for larger enterprise companies.


Holborn acquisition

Uncommon Holborn, due to open in 2023, will become our central flagship location and a truly sustainable workspace for over 2,000 members.


Uncommon 2.0 Launch

Answering to the new post-pandemic environment, we reviewed and relaunched our internal Uncommon Ethos, with a strong focus on team culture and our upcoming business strategy.


ESG strategy launch

In April 2022, we launched a market leading ESG strategy. It outlines five key focus areas, ambitious Net Zero targets and commitments towards building a truly sustainable and responsible business.


We’re a B Corp!

We’ve become part of a driving force for a better future. B Corp status means we’ve got the official stamp of approval for our collective efforts to look after our people, communities and the planet.


2024 Onwards

We will keep making buildings more and more sustainable. Keep teaming up with like-minded ethical partners who inspire us. Keep doing more for the people who work here, while doing the same for those working from here. So we can all achieve great things. Again and again.

“We moved to Uncommon just over a year ago and I can honestly say it is my favourite office of the many I have worked in. I love the atmosphere, the staff (not to mention the coffee!) and it has been a great move for us as we have established our business. We chose to become members because of the feeling we got from the moment we arrived to view it. On a day where we viewed fifteen London offices, Uncommon was the first we visited and easily the team’s favourite so it was an easy decision to join. A year on and our business is doing very well, the team all enjoy coming to work and a big part of that is down to the Uncommon team. I hope we are here for many years to come.”

Nick Cotter – Aretian Wealth Management
Co‑Founder & APFS Chartered Independent Financial Adviser

“Uncommon is a very welcoming environment with a perfect balance between space to work and socialise. They have great on-site facilities with the ability to enjoy the coffee on cold days and the roof top when we have the weather. We chose Uncommon because other communal offices either lacked the finish, on-site offering or, in the case of one in particular, I found very pretentious. I enjoy the fact that there are some very interesting companies in the building but that none of it is thrown at you. Uncommon is unique because there is a great team running the building. We’re very well looked after.”
