The best office spaces in the capital

With the economic recovery continuing and further increased levels of commercial development in London, firms are starting to think about refreshing their office space.

Before setting out their plans, however, they may want to take a look at the favourite offices in the opinion of commercial property agents Morgan Pryce.

Here is a breakdown of the top three on that list, and why they made it on there in the first place:

Google

The Google London office is, perhaps unsurprisingly, voted in at number one on the list. With the money, branding and reputation that the search firm has, it should be impressive. However, with intimate and quirky spaces built into the design of the layout, staff members are certainly pampered.

Highlights of the office include the Velourmptious Snug, providing a British pub feel, and Granny’s Flat, which is complete with doilies and fringed lampshades.

Plantation Place

Number one Plantation Place is something akin to a spaceship that seems to have taken residence right in the heart of the world’s financial network. Designed by an award winning developer, this is a clean, bright and brave space.

Notable mentions for this design include the triple-height reception area, clever and expansive use of glass, and an office lighting array that would not look out of place in a city-centre apartment.

The Unilever building

Among the most iconic of London’s office spaces, Unilever’s premises are a stunning example of period architecture. Grade II-listed it may be, but its imposing presence on the banks of the Thames belies the modern  office flooring  office flooring layout that waits within.
