Mutual sees 1930’s lightbulb factory, The Curtis building at Ravenscourt Park, transformed into an
exciting office location offering office floor plates of between 3,000 sq ft and 4,500 sq ft.
Ergo Real Estate and NFU Mutual is currently remodelling the reception, kitchen and common amenity areas with additional showers added, together with a CAT A fit out to ground, second and third floors. Additionally, Ergo is collaborating with office fit-out firm, Office Principles to highlight the original features including exposed steel, brickwork and original Crittal windows – reviving The Curtis for the next generation of businesses to light up the space.
“The Curtis is a beautiful, self-contained office building that benefits from excellent natural light to all floors, and stunning views across Ravenscourt Park. Our design will enhance much of the building’s amazing original features, while delivering new amenities and a stunning arrival experience,” says Tina Batham, Joint Managing Director, Office Principles North.
Positioned amongst a wide range of restaurants, pubs and even iconic music venues, the location of The Curtis makes it accessible via all forms of transport including quick access to the airport, while Ravenscourt Park area’s green space provides ample opportunity for power walks. Connections inside and outside the workplace are encouraged in communal areas like The Curtis’ terrace, an environment to collaborate and unwind.
“Here at Vibe, we are passionate about team, culture and performance and we strongly believe one of the keys to success is creating a ‘WOW’ environment – one that is both inspirational and conducive to the team’s success,” says Luke Callahan, Managing Director, Vibe Teaching who has just extended its lease of the first floor for a further ten years. “The Curtis Building has provided the perfect canvas for us to achieve this, and the proof is in the pudding – having been named No.1 Best Workplace in the UK by Great Place to Work™, our office is now continually used to showcase our EPIC environment and how it engages people in culture!”
From reusing an existing building for a lighter carbon footprint, to bike facilities and open windows for fresh air intake, sustainability has been at the heart of every decision, and has seen The Curtis achieving an EPC B rating.
