What makes a Mason & Fifth?

Beautiful, concious design

We strive to minimise our impact, reuse and repurpose where possible, promote quality of life for our residents, support our people and the local communities around us. From the choice of materials we use, to the way our buildings operate, and from local maker partnerships to our artist residencies, we interrogate all aspects of our business to continuously do better and set our bar high.

Everything you need included

Whether you choose to stay as a long-term resident, or as a guest for a weekend, we make sure you have everything you need covered. Our studios are fully furnished, ready to move in, including all your utilities, housekeeping and laundry room use. There are no hidden extras or nasty surprises on your bill.

No long-term commitments

We want to create a world where people can move freely without getting tied into fixed contracts for longer than they need. Stay with us for less than 3 months and there’s no contract required. Stay for longer and just give us two month’s notice whenever you’re ready for your next adventure.

Elevated experience

We are a small team who are dedicated to making sure our residents and guests have a best-in-class experience. We pour over every detail of the interior design, the amenities and the events - always with open ears for feedback and a desire to keep going the extra mile.

Spirit Level

Sharing stories of those who defy conventions and dare to live differently.
A growing collection of thoughts, opinions and inspirations that document the wide spectrum of how we can live.

Male impersonation isn’t new but it’s becoming more widely-accepted, offering community to performers and audiences alike. We spoke with Daisy Doris May on finding empowerment through kinging, redefining her identity and amplifying LGBTQ voices.


Joyful Rebels: The rise of drag king culture and its impact on community

For many of us in the city, living on the water holds a unique appeal. While household bills rise, the small overheads of a boat can provide people with the freedom to live life differently.


Reflections from life on the water

Every festival is created with a similar goal: to bring its own vision of Utopia to life, if only for a long weekend. From Woodstock 69’s iconic legacy to Burning Man’s totally unique Black Rock City, festivals have taken on an almost spiritual status in the cultural imagination.


Microdosing alternative lifestyles

Activism and disruption doesn't need to go hand in hand. We spoke with Ashleigh Brown on how she's turning her back on what's wrong in the world and focusing on what's right.


Activism as a work in progress: Why compassion and consistency are vital for self-improvement

Our Founder Ben Prevezer shares with us his vision for the future of living well and why Mason & Fifth has put flexibility at the heart of what we offer.


Radically rethinking the future of how we live well in the city.

For many, the ocean holds an allure that we can’t quite name. Maybe we believe in its therapeutic powers, maybe we like the way the salt-air blows the cobwebs out our lungs, or maybe there’s a siren calling to us just out of earshot on the other side of the horizon (kidding, kind of)...


Come swim with me: Finding community in the sea

Ponderings on identity & community and their impact on culture at large.


What our 28-strong household has taught us.

Culinary maestro and house chef at Mason & Fifth, Bermondsey shared his homemade recipe to make bay and orange pickled cucumbers with our residents in Bermondsey.


Pickling like a pro at Bermondsey

Alpaca Coffee are innovators in the coffee trade and are inspiring coffee drinkers to make better choices. Our residents were invited to a masterclass in coffee and how to make a good cup of joe.


Can we drink coffee more sustainably?

We escaped the city to the coastal town Margate for a Sunday well spent with Rise Up, Clean Up's co-founder Amy. Taking action against plastic on our beaches by organising regular coastline clean-ups...


Combatting plastic along our coastlines

Each house will tell its own story but they are all connected by a shared desire to live differently and to design for a life well-lived.
