Client in the spotlight - Solidatus

Office Freedom are continuing the mission of innovating the way businesses look for a flexible workspace. Each month, we like to shine the spotlight on some of the companies we’ve helped find their ideal office. Today we’re focusing on Solidatus a growing company in the data software industry.

Solidatus is a software tool designed to make data lineage faster by enabling organisations to quickly and easily gather data and visualise the end to end flow. Solidatus has previously been known for aiding the acceleration of their clients’ projects. However, more recently they have extended the impact of their technology, establishing themselves as the winner of the ‘Best Data Lineage Solution’ at the DMR Awards 2017.

Philip Dutton, Co-Founder of Solidatus contacted Office Freedom this year in search of new office space for their expanding team. With the help of our Senior Sales Consultant, Toby Ross, Solidatus were able to find the perfect space – Austin Friars.

~ Solidatus’ guide to Austin Friars ~

Where is the best place for…

Getting a coffee with a client?

Taylor Street

If you are choosy about your coffee, then Taylor Street could be the place for you. “Anyone can roast coffee. But it takes a particular type of skill, and a healthy dose of experience, to roast a coffee in a way that highlights and celebrates the provenance of that bean in all its nuanced wonder.” say Taylor Street.

Lunch with a friend?

Le Relais de Venise L’Entrecôte

Situated in the heart of the City in London’s financial district just off Old Broad Street, Le Relais de Venise L’Entrecôte is a new restaurant in a new, modern building, close to visitor attractions such as St Paul’s Cathedral and the Barbican.

Getting drinks with co-workers


The Phoenix is a great place to enjoy all the things that are great about a real pub – the conversation, the food, the drink and above all the atmosphere. It’s your City of London local with a modern feel, with its grand chandeliers and comfortable furnishings helping create a very warm welcome within the ‘hustle and bustle’ of the capital.

A bit of culture?


Guildhall is a magnificent medieval jewel in London’s crown. Steeped in tradition, Guildhall invites guests on a journey spanning more than 800 years - from the Gothic grandeur of the Great Hall to the largest surviving medieval crypts in London.

A spot of shopping?

One New Change

One New Change is London’s premium shopping destination in the heart of the City. Discover restaurants, cafés and flagship menswear and womenswear fashion brands, all set overlooking St Paul’s Cathedral.
