Business Centre of the Month – Lombard Street
The Regus business centre on London’s Lombard Street has undergone a dramatic refurbishment to synchronise elegant Georgian style with pure 21st century functionality.
Testament to the benefits of a flexible professional life; the centre’s brand new business lounge offers both entrepreneurs and established businessmen alike a prestigious corporate environment in which to drop in and conduct their activities – all in the shadow of the Bank of England.
Multi-coloured neon light refracts off sculpted white acrylic furnishings and a state-of-the-art iMac suite as you swipe in through reception. The entire ground floor has a comforting appeal, with low-slung leather chairs and dark-wood fittings facing one another in a manner more akin to some kind of luxurious gentleman’s club.
Think-pods and individual office suites are available to members that require a touch of privacy, whilst the ‘Recharge’ station is easily accessible for a quick coffee or light bite.
Downstairs, a diamond shaped hardwood table is flanked by ergonomic leather chairs in the opulent conference room. Adorned in golden artwork that glistens off the feature lighting, the space includes the latest in conference technology, including multi-channel videoconferencing.
The business centre is spread across 10 floors, with the upper levels occupied by medium-sized suites in the classic Regus style. The tactile atmosphere in the office suites derives from colourful cubist art set against subtly coloured feature walls, whilst a fully equipped IT and communications network is configured for the rigours of business in 2013.
A host of administrative and technological features help take your focus away from the mundane activities and orientates you squarely on your profession. Dedicated call answering and voicemail, daily mail forwarding, high-speed broadband and sleek leather furnishings are all facilities available at this business centre, with 24 hour secure access to ensure your company can work to international timescales.
Logistically, the office is conveniently located just outside London’s pulsating transport hub at Bank; where the Central, Northern, District, Circle, DLR and Waterloo & City lines all converge from the capital’s many far-flung corners.
For its timeless sense of style and support of start-up industries in the heart of Europe’s premier financial district, Regus Lombard Street receives the mantle of February’s Business Centre of the Month.
