Creative Works: Office of the Future Awards 2019 Champions
We’re super excited to announce that Creative Works came ‘Highly Commended’ at the Hubble Office of the Future Awards in not just one but three categories!
Innovative BusinessModel Award

The celebration took place in March 2019 at Icetank, Covent Garden. It was the first property event of its kind to recognise innovation in the growing coworking sector.
Property technology specialist, Juliette Morgan, and award-winning architect, Dara Huang, were among the inspiring individuals on the judging panel. Newcomers (like ourselves) made the finals – as well as some long-established operators.

Earth Friendly Award
Sustainability has been at the forefront of our vision since the beginning of our journey. If you didn’t know already, 82% of our furniture is made from recycled or reclaimed materials and we only installed carpets where absolutely necessary.
Our LED lighting is energy efficient and its Unified Glare Rating means no more strained or tired eyes – hurray! Even the coffee cups that our environmentally-conscious building contractor used when they were constructing the interior were biodegradable and recyclable.
Innovative Business Model Award
As a Community Interest Company (CIC) we’re huge champions of circular economy. In other words, we’re more interested in the growth of our community than simply making a profit. Any money we make goes back into subsidised rents and furthering our mission.
Our background in education means we’re able of offer members and creatives the best training and development opportunities in London at a competitive price, as well as the chance to work with one of BCE’s apprentices (with a free desk space thrown in).
Hubble commended us for offering local and London-wide startups truly flexible solutions, as well as the chance to acquire new skills through our Talent Incubator, various training programmes and professional networking events.
Community Focus Award
We were praised in this category for our focus on the wellbeing of both our members and the wider community of Waltham Forest, E17.
