About us

The Spaces is a digital publication from VF Publishing exploring new ways to live and work. From residential buildings to public domains, co-working clubs to hotels and retail hot spots, we will look at the spaces that are pushing boundaries and meet the people who are changing how we live. Exploring the rich urban fabric of cities across the world, we want to inform and spark new conversations about design and property while inspiring people to look at their environments differently.

The online magazine was launched in 2015 by founding editor Malaika Byng and current editor-in-chief Betty Wood. We have also published two books, with future titles to come.

These technologies are used for things like:
