In October 2015, Office Space in Town, one of the UK’s leading serviced office providers, together with Forum Partners, a global real estate and asset management firm announced the £21 million acquisition of 20 St Dunstan’s Hill, EC3.
Opened in November and situated on an island site adjacent to the Monument landmark, Office Space in Town embarked on an extensive refurbishment of the 10 storey building, with 60,000 sq ft of office space – further evidence of the UK’s commercial property and serviced office market’s exponential growth.
Looking out to the Thames with views of HMS Belfast, Tower Bridge and the Shard, the maritime-themed serviced offices were designed in collaboration with Sam Kopsch Studio, with Peldon Rose responsible for delivering the office design and build project. Designed in consultation with iconic luxury yacht brand, Sunseeker, the building aims to give the feeling of being aboard an exclusive ocean-going yacht. The sleek, nautical interior is complete with a 10-metre white boat shaped reception desk, suspended propellers, and boat hulls and the distinctive seafaring look ontinues into the galley kitchens.
20 St Dunstan’s Hill also incorporates break-out spaces, galley-style kitchens, and designed to facilitate a new style of working – providing a beauty treatment room, five serviced bedrooms, and a rooftop terrace café/bar with views of the Shard, Tower Bridge, and HMS Belfast. The building already houses a number of tenants, including lifestyle businesses, boutique fragrance developers, specialist executive search firms, innovative think tanks, and leaders from the UK’s finance sector. Companies can rent a choice of 15 nautical-inspired meeting rooms that hold from 4 to 100 people as well as free meeting areas. IT provision includes 2 x 1 GB fibre lines as well as Cat6 cabling throughout and two secure comms rooms.
