From whimsical wonderland scenes to Sunseeker-inspired spaces with stunning views, Office Space in Town (OSiT) offers a range of quirky workplace solutions, which are sure to make visitors smile. Their buildings are refurbished to the highest standard, led by an experienced design team to create stimulating working environments for organisations of all sizes.

 

With the flexible workplace market set to boom as companies cut back their property portfolios, we talk to Developments Director, Simon Eastlake about the benefits of OSiT’s boutique office spaces.

 

"When a client first comes in and they’re looking at moving in, they can see the benefits of what we do for attraction of talent for themselves – people want to work in great locations. We spend a lot of time on wellbeing and promoting wellbeing within our buildings, which clients can then promote themselves."

Location is Key 

 

With eleven locations across the UK, all close to main transport hubs, the offices are easy to access for a range of commuters. The seven London locations are all within five-minutes of zone one tube stations – a key consideration when acquiring their buildings. 

 

Five-Star Service 

 

Client satisfaction is a top priority and this is achieved through more than just the look of the offices. The design-led spaces are supported by a team of welcoming staff who take pride in their service  – from the number of five-star Google reviews received, it’s clear to see that people enjoy the whole OSiT experience.

 

Innovations to Support Wellbeing 

 

Simon asserts the importance of offering plenty of communal spaces including outdoor areas where occupants can enjoy a change a scenery away from their screens. 

Ensuring plenty of natural light across all offices is also crucial and this is supported by wellness technologies such as automatic tinting windows.

Fitness classes from yoga to boxercise are hosted at their bespoke fitness studio. And safe cycle storage and shower facilities encourages a healthier commuting option.
