Title

Summary

The Office Group are the market leaders in Londons’ exploding co-working scene; creating fresh space for creatives, techies and every kind of business startup. We designed a fresh, functional and provocative new home inside one of London’s ugliest buildings.
 
Tenants vary from one person needing deskspace and an address, to breakthrough businesses with thirty staff. We designed a secret world inside this introverted building inspired by the 1920s speakeasies of Chicago, whose cool, relaxed and hidden interiors were the perfect point of inspiration.
 
Albert House has a diverse range of spaces to support a variety of ways of working. Everything from drop-in workspace to fixed desks, a bar, lounge, shared workroom and gym are supported by meeting and conferencing rooms and enough bike storage for the Tour de France. 
 
Robust and refined, with luxurious finishes and industrial chic, Albert House sits at the spiritual centre of the Shoreditch workplace. Overlooking the Old Street roundabout, it is in the heart of Tech City and provides an enviable place to work in the coolest part of London.
