This month we have handpicked a selection of the most fabulous, quirky business centres with themed and original design on the market. So why not differentiate your business and move into a truly unique space for your people to work?
Why we love it:
Work from an amazing whimsical environment with this Alice in Wonderland themed building. In the roof garden on the fourth floor, a giant Alice can be seen disappearing down the rabbit hole. She then reappears in the reception area – ready to take you on an incredible journey together. From design-led meeting rooms evoking the Mad Hatter’s tea party and the Queen of Hearts’ garden, you’ll be guided around the stark white corridors by intermittent strip lights which simulate Alice’s journey through the rabbit hole.
This is one of London’s most exuberant serviced offices. The unique Lewis Carroll-inspired interior provides clients with an inspiring and creative working. This is then complemented with an experienced support team who claim to ensure unparalleled levels of customer service.
Why we love it:
The light and spacious open-plan ground-floor office is set back from the main street, in a quiet oasis accessed via a quaint drawbridge. Bright and architecturally quirky, the space was formerly an art gallery and before that a jewellery showroom (one of the old diamond vaults is now a meeting room).
The property is parallel to bustling Leather Lane Market and set amongst the many creative businesses of Holborn and Clerkenwell. It is a great place to work and easy for your clients to get to. The entrance to this office is right on Hatton Garden, in the heart of bustling Farringdon and Clerkenwell.
These offices benefit from a huge skylight, step-free wheelchair access from the street, 24-hr access, free-to-book meeting room, kitchen, two breakout areas (inside and outside) and all bills and Wi-Fi included.
Why we love it:
After stepping into the beautiful Portland stone property from the City’s bustling street, you will be immersed in a luxurious and deceptively spacious office environment where the beautiful monopoly themed furniture and original artworks adorning the walls, never fails to impress. The sumptuous surroundings are perfectly matched by the first class back office support team who are available to assist in the smooth operation of your business.
Why we love it:
A work-play balance is important and the spaces in this building are configured to provide a functional workplace with the benefit of many extras, such as an engaging events programmes and strong community.
With a roof terrace housing opaque tent pods and weekly yoga classes, you will be in the perfect place to restore Zen in the working day. Bedford Square offers affordable, flexible yet fully equipped workspace.
The property is situated in an excellent location with lots of surrounding amenities and fantastic transport links.
"I was impressed by the service I received from DeVono when it came to finding new offices. They considerably reduced the stress, hassle and time that this process would have otherwise involved and we are chuffed with the end result."
"I must also comment that the service received from DeVono has been exemplary. In what I have experienced to be the unpleasant world of estate agency it has been a real joy to work with you. You have been driven, proactive, reliable and extremely quick and responsive. The fact that you are pleasant to work with has been a bonus. Working with DeVono has been one of the very best customer experiences of my business career."
"Our second time using DeVono and again I was very impressed with the team - friendly, efficient and extremely commercial and honest. They understood the brief and worked hard to deliver the right property for our needs. In what was an unfamiliar area to me, they provided guidance on key issues and negotiated very good terms, highly recommendable."
"We really appreciated your help. We got the result we wanted at a speed we could never have achieved ourselves and we're very pleased that we engaged you."
"It was a pleasure working with DeVono - the team were very professional, knowledgeable and provided the right advice when needed. The most important aspect was that you took time to understand what we were after rather than position everything on the market. I would not hesitate recommending you and your firm."
