After almost two years hidden behind hoardings and scaffolding, St John’s Foundation is finally able to reveal the beautifully restored 1 Queen Square.
Behind its doors, you’ll discover the House of St John’s – where co-working has found a new home.
The Grade 1-listed, Georgian building commands a prestigious BA1 address and has been thoughtfully refurbished. It now hosts a variety of private offices; flexible and dedicated desks; meeting rooms and a stylish event space. Additionally, members can expect 24/7 access.
While the building has been sympathetically restored, the trappings of the modern world have also been included, with high-end fittings, ultra-speed broadband and attentive service staff. The exclusive co-working environment space will open late 2021, providing the perfect place for the new, hybrid working lifestyle.
House of St John’s will be the place for members to meet, network and socialise, as well as getting on with the serious business of making a living. The founding principles of membership are focussed on community, inclusion and informal luxury and the aim is to bring together like-minded people, invested in social change.
Profits from the new venture will be gifted to the House’s charity partner, St John’s Foundation, to fund positive societal change which includes supporting disadvantaged children in Bath and North East Somerset. This crucial work is done through the charity’s Foundation Fund and the four key pillars include providing nutritious food every day; a safe place outside of school; behavioural and emotional support and help in reading and writing, oracy, and mathematics. Addressing all these issues makes great inroads into lessening the educational attainment gap.
