About
ARC

ARC Club is a professional workplace and shared space for the neighbourhood.

We offer the best of the office – meeting rooms, phone booths, wifi you can rely on, free printing, good coffee and conversation – in a beautiful, sunny ground-floor space with a social purpose.

OUR
MISSION

2020 was a pivotal year. We learned to love our professional independence and to value the people and local services around us.

At ARC Club, we are committed to creating workplaces for the entire neighbourhood – to ensure everyone benefits from a new way of working life.

ARC Club About ARC Our Mission A Workplace Revolution Front Doors

ARC
/a:k/

  1. A small part of a greater circle or cycle.
  2. A smooth and easeful change of direction.
  3. A non-linear movement (through life).
Choosing when and where you work means more time for friends and family, more time for you and more time for the things that count.

But working from home doesn’t work for everyone. Emotional wellbeing and professional prospects can suffer. And without an accessible, professional alternative to the office, people are left behind.

At ARC Club, we believe everyone deserves a place to get their best work done. A place to focus. A place to feel professional. A place to clock on and clock off. On their own terms.

That’s why we’re breaking down the barriers to coworking. Be they cultural, financial or practical. And we’re doing it one neighbourhood at a time.

But it doesn’t stop there. This new way of working is an opportunity to direct our time and energy – all that good stuff we take to work every day – closer to home.

At ARC Club, we champion local talent and businesses, partner with grassroots and community organisations, offer special memberships to those who could use a little help and run programmes like our Homework Club.

Occupying commercial real estate in new developments, we aim to bring energy and purpose back to residential areas by creating equitable, productive hubs for local life.

We began in a residential area of East London. Where do you think we should go next?

ARC Club Homerton is the first step in our mission.
