behind the madness...
Creative, disruptor, parenting guru...there's only one Maggie Bolger.
The queen_b of b_together is Maggie Bolger, widely regarded as one of the most progressive thought leaders in early childhood education, family-focused interior design and members’ clubs. She is the founder and ex-CEO/Creative Director of London’s first family members’ club, Maggie & Rose.
Maggie & Rose was regarded as a pioneer in the industry. Dubbed the “Soho House for yummy mummies” by The Sunday Times, it paved the way for a new model of family-friendly spaces in cities.
Maggie is now proud to be reimagining the family members club beyond anything that has been seen before. Her vision is to create the ultimate forward-thinking family space for members to relax, learn, work, play, eat, drink and b_inspired. With four children aged 9 to 19, Maggie has a wealth of parenting experience as well as a lifetime of industry experience that she is bringing to b_together.
Bonus fact. The last time Maggie sat down and did nothing for a few minutes was 1997.
Maggie's inspiration is first and foremost her blended family. They haven't just inspired her, they've inspired everything about how she's created spaces that are undeniably for modern family living.
We set out on our first build in SJW to see how sustainable we could push things. From designs to materials to fittings, we explored how eco-friendly a building site could really be. It wasn't all blue skies, and yes we had to compromise, but we never stopped innovating.
The delicious menu AT feast is served throughout the club, 12 months in the making courtesy Maggie & Shakira. Their dishes aren’t fussy or pretentious (no dandelion gazpacho with calvados-infused shitake mushrooms here); they’re just beautiful, responsibly-sourced family-friendly faves for the heart, mind and soul.
The team behind the magic are grafters, educators, innovators, imaginators (yes that's a word). They are experts in parenting and life, not in books and theory.
What's with all the stickmen? We use stickmen illustrations throughout everything visual at b_together because we want our brand to be interactive and accessible to young and old. Seriously, who can't draw stick men?
We also believe it’s important to have a functioning planet. So at b_together, we want to provide a space that inspires your little ones to dream big but also to b_kind to the planet while they go about it.
And while your darlings learn and play, we want to provide a fabulous space for you parents to work, connect and relax. Because, to quote another Whitney Houston song: we will always love you. Too much? Okay ignore that last bit.
We want to push the boundaries of the family sector stratosphere and redefine an industry in need of change. Quite a lot of change
Creativity is at the heart of everything we do. We want everyone in our spaces to feel inspired to create beautiful things.
We aim to inspire a generation of geniuses! We encourage curiosity and stimulate minds through connection and play.
We’re here to help parents navigate the different stages and challenges of modern family life. Sometimes cocktails help.
Our spaces are places to relax and enjoy yourself. So it’s our job to surround you with things that make you smile and lol.
When it comes to our planet, we want to b_part of the solution, not the problem. So, sustainability and responsible sourcing are essentials here.
