“Uncommon provide some of the coolest shared office spaces in London. Their beautifully designed Islington office is ideally situated just a 7-minute walk from Highbury & Islington station. Highbury Fields park is also on the doorstep, perfect for a lunchtime stroll. Uncommon offer a wide range of networking events and interesting workshops for business development and there’s a bar/café area perfect for escaping the computer during the day or for after work drinks.” – Hubble HQ
Highbury & Islington is a very fast-growing neighbourhood, both cheerful and mellow – perfect for creatives, entrepreneurs and small start-ups. Every Uncommon space houses it’s own charm (we also have spaces in Liverpool Street, Borough & Fulham). Out of all our spaces, our Highbury space is deemed as one of our most relaxing.
The building is tucked within the beautiful residential area surrounded by nature and parks, which brings this tight-knit community feel to the indoors. It has a an artistic and industrial edge, with a lot of the furnishings and accessories being more laidback compared to our other spaces. You’ll see an abundance of plants everywhere. The general aura of the space is very much cosy, welcoming and homey – must like the general Highbury area.
The building itself is light and airy with lots of natural lighting coming in. Most private offices have huge large windows which makes you feel like you’re in a treehouse.
“Uncommon is a finely tuned coworking space, with ergonomic furnishing, air clearing plant life, roof terrace and even a focus on making the scent in the office pleasing to the nose, Uncommon has locations across London, but its the gorgeous Highbury and Islington space that makes this list. If you like plants, this is for you.” – Icon Printing
