The Coworking Diaries - #8 Halkin Southwark

Default silhouette

Written by Office Freedom

Last week, I paid a visit to Halkin's newly renovated workspace in Southwark for a day of coworking graft. Cue colour popping art, funky furniture designs and the best lasagna I've had in a long, long time...


A warm welcome from the friendly Halkin team included an on-the-house earl grey tea from the on-site cafe De Santis - thanks Ed! After finding my spot for the day, I connected myself to the WiFi and began the day's tasks, including writing new content for our updated website - coming soon so watch this space!

The coworking area in which I worked has been creatively curated to provide both a practical and aesthetically appealing place to work; as the photos show, colour, art and design play a big part in shaping Halkin's identity.

The space has been newly renovated and finishing touches are being made this week, including glass panels to create a partitioned space. Private offices form the majority of the building and are occupied by a variety of businesses across a range of industries.

The coworking space on the ground floor is geared towards freelancers, startups and small teams from larger companies who require a flexible working environment.  As well as workspace, you'll find spacious meeting rooms on the ground floor and a fully facilitated kitchen.

A partnership with Rose & King Galleries (based in Mayfair) is part of what makes a Halkin office special - rotating collections of artwork adorn the walls of each location, transforming them into gallery spaces. Explore the full collection on their Instagram page which boasts a growing artfan following.

The De Santis cafe greets you in reception, fulfilling all your early morning caffeine urges.


Comfy patchwork armchairs make perfect breakout seats.

Tasty food and excellent service; what more could you want?!


All the lovely food risks playing havoc with the waistline. Never fear: Halkin has it covered!
