All superheroes need headquarters.
Those who change the world need a place to discuss, rest and plan their next ideas. To decide on the best for humanity, it seems normal for heroes to meet in the best possible place.
Located in the heart of London, in the splendid Marylebone district, Home Grown acts as a beacon of light on the business world.
Meet Home Grown, the member’s club home to the brightest minds in London’s thriving business community.
Entering Home Grown was like entering into an art gallery. By walking through the corridors, you could have the feeling to be in the Tate Modern or The Wallace Collection. The shimmering gold ceilings will make you feel like a monarch walking down the Palace of Versailles. The colourful and sumptuous silk wallpapers take you on a journey to another world, where colours mix into one another, where trees and birds seem to be coming out of the wall. To enter Home Grown Club is to dive into the pages of a fairy tale.
At the crossroads between Alice in Wonderland and The Great Gatsby, the furniture, more than being purely aesthetic, fascinates by its uniqueness and display. A wall where dozens of mirrors reflect the bright minds walking up and down the stairs, as well as the future that lies ahead of us. Whereas the leather sofas, they make sitting feel like a warm embrace… Home Grown acts as an oasis of creativity and joy, where ideas thrive and entrepreneurship flourishes, a place frozen in time in a city in constant movement.
