Interesting combination of quality serviced office space and crèche facilities. For lots of families it’s a real challenge juggling early years childcare and working.
I can see the attraction of how the Cuckooz Nest concept might work. Especially where parents require a landing pad for short notice or urgent tasks (particularly where they need to get something done on their non working day!) combined with the convenience of knowing their child is being well looked after close at hand.
Interesting to see whether the concept will take off at other locations outside of London.
At first glance, it looks like your typical London co-working space. The minimalist decor, open-plan layout and private telephone booths are all present and correct. Then you get a faint but unmistakable whiff of baby lotion. Welcome to Cuckooz Nest, the capital’s first combined shared office and crèche. Cuckooz Nest officially launched its first site on Monday in Clerkenwell and is the brain child of Charlie Rosier and Fabienne O’Neill. The pair met 10 years ago when Rosier was a land buyer for a residential developer and O’Neill was working in marketing and events for a publishing company. “We started to meet socially and the rest is history,” says O’Neill. The duo’s first enterprise was a “design-led, customer-focused” serviced apartment concept called Cuckooz, and by the end of the summer will have eight sites in the capital.
