Henry Wood House is a sterling example of modern architecture. The former BBC research and development building is a stone’s throw from Oxford Circus on Riding House Street, and is The Office Group’s largest co-working space to date. Named after the man who gave us The Proms, Mr. Henry Wood, the building is arranged around a private courtyard at the top of Regent Street, opposite the BBC’s Broadcasting House on Portland Place.
BuckleyGrayYeoman were commissioned to refurbish the interiors of this 1960’s building to provide flexible co-working spaces, clubrooms and a lounge on the ground floor, using the building’s unique history as inspiration for the design. The newly launched Henry Wood House provides a range of working spaces, including 7 floors of office space, each with a variety of subdivision sizes that are complemented by communal meeting rooms, breakout and private working areas. The majority of the fifth floor is given over entirely to meeting rooms and two flexible boardroom and conference suites available for hire, along with a Penthouse that offers a self-contained work and meeting space with its own kitchen and washroom facilities.
Members of The Office Group’s Clubrooms scheme also have free access to Henry Wood House’s Clubroom; which provides informal meeting, working and breakout areas; and also to the Workroom, which provides individual reading desks for more focussed, private working. Many of the spaces feature bespoke furniture and cabinetwork designed by BuckleyGrayYeoman, such as the integrated storage on the office floors.
