BRANDS WE LOVE
Oru Space, located in the vibrant suburb of London’s East Dulwich, is a lifestyle workspace conceptually designed for the unique times we live in. By bringing a friendly workspace environment to suburbia, Oru ensures that professionals and creatives – with little time to commute – can thrive by simply knowing they’re closer to home & creche.
An innovative people-focused model, Oru’s dynamism is encapsulated in co- founders Paul Hepworth Nelmes’s and Vibushan Thirukumar’s motto ‘we think, for what you need’. Therefore creating a positively energising space with emphasis on wellness, diet, workspace and cultural events in tandem with an unparralleled passion for the environment, sustainability & social outreach. Its Bounce Back scheme – to help members in the wake of lockdown – has won industry-wide plaudits. Whilst culturally, Oru’s exciting African Supper Club has already been enthusiastically covered by BBC Africa.
Right from the beginning Oru has been true to its word in creating spaces which actively respond to ongoing environment issues. Considering every facet of the journey – from refashioning old buildings to solar energy – all Oru buildings are optimised to drastically reduce energy consumption. This means that all Oru building projects source materials that are created by way of minimal process and can in turn be recycled. Every Oru environment is dotted with plants to ensure a calm biophilic work environment, scientifically proven to enhance well being and productivity.
Oru’s thriving vegetarian cafe ensures that all produce is ethically sourced to provide healthier eating options for members and the public alike. Influenced by Sri Lankan cuisine it has introduced a refreshingly healthier option to the high-street – reinvigorating culinary interest, tastes and choice.
