Headspace – We provide uniquely designed, inspiring office space for a community of real people with big ideas.

The Bloomsbury Building by the Office Group- In tune with the surrounding area’s publishing heritage, we’d like to think that space provides a relaxed and cultured atmosphere, ideal for you to think and create. For the first time, we have a card room, complete with a house piano (perfect for those impromptu sing-a-longs) and a poker table. There’s also an on-site café, an indoor garden, lounges, bike storage and showers.

Eoffice – Located on the iconic Oxford Street in the very heart of London, our brand new coworking centre is at the junction of Soho and Fitzrovia, benefiting from great transport links and buzzing neighbourhood.

Work.Life Fitzrovia – If you’re a lover of the Central-life then this one’s for you. With the character of the West and the hustle and bustle of the East, it’s the perfect place for lunching, theatre-watching and window-shopping. With Regent’s Park around the corner and Soho on your doorstep, let’s just say you’ll never be short of something to do on your lunch hour.
