  2. The height of good space: breathtaking new offices in Clerkenwell

    30 July 2019
    Almost directly opposite Leather Lane, this striking and comprehensively refurbished corner building, previously occupied by Agent Provocateur, is a true eye-catcher with its refurbished sandy coloured bricks and dark grey stone reliefs and metalwork.
    Inside we are offering three office units – 1,813ft2 on the second floor, 1,251ft2 on the third and 607ft2 on the fourth -  all of which fully deliver when it comes to inspirational, creative workspace. The lower ground, ground and first floors are under offer. 

    Whichever way you look inside there is seemingly glass everywhere: from reinstated double glazed industrial windows, to full-height walls of warehouse-style glazing enclosing the meeting rooms, to the contemporary - and somewhat magical - glass pendants hanging overhead.

    The office interiors have high ceilings that further enhance the naturally breezy feel of the spaces and are supported by original steel columns and beams in dark grey to match the windows. The specification also includes dark oak engineered floors, air-conditioning, kitchenettes, underfloor cabling and bright white decor.

    A particularly standout feature of the building is that each of the offices on the second, third and fourth floors has its own private terrace giving valuable outdoor space for informal meetings, team events and thinking time, as well as a place to relax, enjoy lunch and take a break.

    The building is accessed by a reconfigured contemporary entrance lobby, with further amenities including communal shower and WC facilities, cycle storage and a passenger lift.

    Leather Lane's daily street food market has become a huge favourite with local workers and the location among a number of Clerkenwell's best local pubs bars gives 154 Clerkenwell Road a huge advantage to any business looking to attract the best talent.

    Transport connections are no less excellent with Chancery Lane tube (Central Line) within a short walk along with Faringdon station where Thameslink and Underground services are soon to be joined by the Elizabeth Line. This new route across the capital will give Clerkenwell a major London interchange on a direct route between Canary Wharf and Heathrow that extends further into Essex, Kent and Berkshire .
