One of the benefits of a flex office is that most properties will provide breakout areas and communal spaces as part of the inclusive monthly fee. Podium has taken this concept to another level with the expansion of our Dock Club lounges, offering resident clients and Dock Club members a network of stylish coworking spaces across London and the South. All offering prime locations, comfortable and stylish surroundings, hot desking, comfortable seating, WiFi and complimentary refreshments, a Dock Club lounge is the perfect place to have an informal meeting, catch up with emails or just take a break from your desk. The latest addition to the Dock Club network is in Russell Square, Bloomsbury in central London. Senior Customer Service Assistant, Rosemarie Ludick, was instrumental in designing the space and managing the project. Utilising an area which was previously an office, she has created a stunning new area which is both practical and beautiful and a design that highlights the fabulous period features in a contemporary and interesting way. “I love the bold blues and greens as they are both luxurious and cosy,” says Rosemarie. “My goal was to use the décor and theme to compliment the period style of the building, but with a quirky twist.”
This stylish Dock Club lounge benefits from natural light and a wonderful high ceilings, giving a light and airy feel, and there’s plenty of space for hot desking or informal meetings. There’s even a private “snug” for making a call or for a quiet space in which to focus your thoughts as well as an outdoor courtyard which will be completed over the next few weeks. A Nespresso machine and soft drinks fridge provide complimentary refreshments and the location couldn’t be better; in prime position on beautiful Russell Square, the property is diagonally opposite Russell Square tube station and just a short walk to Holborn and Tottenham Court Road underground stations.
