Just how luxurious can London offices get?
The height of luxury, when it comes to office design, goes a lot further than buying Sven Fulcrum Accent Real Wood Veneer furniture, as lovely as that is.
It would seem that water-coolers are a thing of the past as well! In one Soho £100 million office development, employees will soon be able to order drinks at their desks. The central London offices, located at 40 Beak Street, will include built-in champagne buttons so office workers do not have to leave their desks for the after-work drink.
That is not all. The plush new office development also boasts Sushi, cocktails, caviar and full meals. Restaurant chain Sticks’n’Sushi, will be based on the building’s ground floor so it will be convenient for them to provide ‘desk deliveries’ via a series of dumb waiter-style lifts. Staff can enjoy their champagne and sushi on private balconies and valet staff will also be available for their convenience.
Luxury offices around the world
London is not alone in its love of luxury office accommodation. After a $92 million refurbishment an office block on Battery Road in Singapore now boasts a rainforest-inspired vertical garden on the ground floor together with an in-house restaurant, various lounge areas and full climate control. Employees benefit from on-site banking services so there’s no need to dash down the high street in your lunch break!
If you wander down Bligh Street in Sydney you can gaze up at the winner of The Best Tall Building Award in Asia & Australasia for 2012. This Grade A office even has a day care centre and a licensed restaurant in the lobby. There’s plenty of outdoor seating in front of the building so that you can bask in the Sydney sunshine.
Not to be outdone, the Rockefella Plaza in New York has its own version of luxury. The Mid-Town Manhattan business centre offers employees freshly-brewed Starbucks coffee together with a continental breakfast all served up in a spacious breakroom. The walls are adorned with original artwork, and you can look out on glorious views of the St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
In Kurfürstendamm in Berlin there are exclusive serviced offices with a luxury lounge area with an open fire place. This is just perfect for chilly Berlin winters. For the summer months there is a beautiful garden roof terrace with views over the historic courtyards of the House Cumberland and the south district of Berlin.
