Flexible workspace operator Clockwise to open second London location

Flexible workspace provider Clockwise is to open its second London location in Bromley, in spring 2022. 


Consisting of a range of spaces including; dedicated offices, private desks, a podcast room, and member’s lounge with café and terrace; the new site is Clockwise’s largest to date spanning over 73,000 sq ft. The flexible workspace will also be complemented by a casual dining restaurant and boutique hotel with 24 rooms, set to open later the same year.


Originally built in 1907 a further construction was added in 1939 which represents the development of Bromley since the early 20th Century. The part-listed building has been vacant for a number of years and was added to the Heritage at Risk register in 2009. However, many of the original details and materials have been retained, much of which are being carefully and sensitively restored by leading architect Cartwright Pickard and designers Fusion Interiors Group. Stand out features include four giant fluted concrete columns clad in green marble, stone architrave and fireplaces, wood panelling featured most notably in the old Courthouse, three large stained-glass windows in the former old Council Chambers, and records of the former Bromley mayors listed in its grand entrance.


Taking inspiration from the past while bringing the building into the 21st century, Cartwright Pickard and Fusion Interiors Group have taken a considered approach to design to support the differing working methods brought on by the pandemic, with technology to support hybrid teams and a range of welcoming and inviting spaces to work in.


Offering a diverse portfolio of property across the UK, Clockwise has been at the forefront of the changing nature of work as a result of the pandemic. The opening of its new South London location is a timely solution to meet the increased demand for offices closer to home. Enquiries for space doubled between Q2 and Q3 of 2020 from businesses moving from centralised London offices to remote regional working.


Experiencing a marked uptick in the take-up of its spaces from businesses of all sizes and sectors, Clockwise has also opened new sites this year in Leeds, Wood Green, Manchester and Exeter, with planned openings in Bristol and Southampton, along with an expansion into mainland Europe via Brussels and Bremen.


Alexandra Brunner, Chief Operating Officer at Clockwise, says: “We’re incredibly excited to be opening our second London home in Bromley to complement our existing North London offering. A central part of the London community since the 19th century, the new Clockwise space will not just be a place to work but we hope will also become a hub for the community with a range of vibrant spaces which blend commerce, culture and connection, with amenities including restaurant and boutique hotel.


“While businesses have learned that teams can work well from home, at Clockwise we are firm believers that a central space is key to fostering collaboration, boosting productivity, and supporting the health and wellbeing of employees. That is why the opening of our second London site is such a key milestone for Clockwise, providing a more local hub for Londoners to work effectively.”
