Exercise is key to our wellbeing. 

If you feel better you work better. 

It’s not exactly rocket science, nor is our goal. 

We want to rekindle work and play’s love affair. 

Creating a space that’s got a bit of both. 

A place you can boulder your way to a brain wave.

Help us open our doors in a few short weeks!

As the project has evolved and taken turns we hadn’t expected the build has over run and we having cover more costs than we had budgeted for.

We need your help to get us over the final hurdles so we can let you in to warm our walls (not literally mind, our mega ventilation system will keep you all clean and cool).

In return for your support we have reduced our prices right down. If there's one thing about Yonder thats unsustainable its these prices! 

Join the Yonder community, and help us grow together to inspire a future generation of movers, shakers, thinkers, makers and creators.

We’re all about encouraging focus on wellbeing as well as work, aligning the philosophies of Climbing, Yoga, and Creative Problem-Solving to inspire, excite and unite.

It’s not just the wall geometry that’s been designed by us, we’ve thought about every little bit of this building from the ground up. From the reception desk to the cafe chairs, we've left no rock unturned in our designs.

We’ve gathered creators and makers from all over London to bring our ideas to life. It's all local hands on deck for this build.

We believe sustainable design is the way forward so we’re using timber construction techniques that we believe are one of the most sustainable ways to build. Steel and concrete have had their day.

Aspirational work environment is at our core - we're dedicated to providing an amazing and inspiring creative space for a pocket happy price.

It’s been two years, we’ve jumped through many a hoop 

Now we’ve finalised our designs and started construction.

The ground work has finished and the timber framing is on it’s way (all the way from Norway),

We’re excited to say it’s finally time to build our community and get those doors open!! 

 

Blurring the lines between work and play is easy when you've got all the components to hand!

Risks and challenges

Having worked on this project for so long we feel we have overcome many of the challenges already, of course bringing an idea to life comes with a whole new set of practical obstacles and we have no doubt there will be plenty more along the way.

This is why we have employed some of the top professionals in the industry. By building a team of experienced engineers, designers and builders we feel well equipped to tackle any challenges that might arise.
