With more competition than ever before in the flexible workspace market, providers in central London are turning to themed design to make their offering stand out from the crowd. 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.
"Our experience with DeVono and you specifically could not have been better. It was a relief to have an expert negotiating on our behalf and, most importantly, sticking with a long and difficult assignment."
"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."
"I have worked with DeVono for many years. I value their approach – always looking at the big picture, not just the deal. They consider the real estate challenges we face through our eyes, understanding not just the real estate reporting requirements but also the complexity of our organisation’s structure and stakeholders. I’m always very happy to work with the team and value their support."
"Having appointed DeVono in March 2016 to find our next high profile London office from 2018, we have not been disappointed with their high level of service and meticulous attention to detail from the very first day, through to signing the Agreement for Lease and beyond. They assured us during the tender process that they would be right by our side all the way through and not just appointed to “do the deal” and this is exactly what we received."
"We have used DeVono as our property advisers for a number of years. Their greatest strengths lie in their ability to understand quickly what is required and to grasp all the relevant issues. They regularly ‘think outside the box’ and offer creative solutions to complex problems. We have no hesitation in recommending them."
