Spotlight On: China Works

Who says the office is dead? We love coming into work, and why wouldn't we when we're based in an absolutely stunning, iconic building?

China Works, known as Southbank House in its heyday, is a beautifully architected 17th Century redbrick building, designed specifically as a museum, design studio and art school to showcase Royal Doulton's elaborate, high-end range of ceramics. You can find out a bit more about the building and its history here.

Southbank House is now China Works, a Workspace office, and like all Workspace venues, it's been designed with a cool and stylish vibe that remains sympathetic to its past. We've been tenants for nearly 3 years now, and it's been perfect for us. Why not take a tour?

If you're looking for new office space in London (because people really are starting to enjoy being back in the office!), Workspace has over 60 properties to choose from, all with their own history, style and character. It's definitely worth a look...

PS: As an aside, we'd like to give a huge shout out Look Up London, whose link to the history of Southbank House is provided above. Some of us have had the pleasure of meeting Katie and her team on her City Secret Gardens walking tour, and it was absolutely brilliant - informative, entertaining and great value for money. It opened our eyes to things we don't normally notice in London, and reminded us what a beautiful city it is, steeped in history and full of tales of old. Virtual tours are also available for those who aren't local. Highly recommended!
