Through creating a multidisciplinary community of businesses, entrepreneurs, freelancers and creatives we are fostering a space for innovation, social impact, community and wellbeing.

A building reborn, geared for flexibility and growth.

The life of our building began in 1932. The design, by A and K Henderson was for a company based in Leicester, England. For much of the 20th century, they were the largest manufacturer of footwear machinery in the world. They were the British United Shoe Machinery Company.

Now, it’s our turn to transform this space into one that embraces a new generation of workers. One that brings people together, that’s collaborative, engaging and empowering. We love that our journey begins with
this wonderful space and that we’ve been able to preserve a little of its history in our name

A clever mix of destinations. Collaborative spaces to mingle, cosy ones to focus.

From the ground floor, you’ll enter a fabulous double height space, surrounded by beautiful contrasting textures. The atrium is an inspired space, a perfect destination for informal collaborations, working away from your desk and for having lunch.

Nearby, there’s the members kitchen, our wellness space with treadmills and bikes, a dedicated space for group activities, phone booths for private calls and bookable ‘open desk’ workspaces.

Experience a better workspace.

We understand the challenges of working in a busy office. So with privacy and focus in mind, we’ve optimised to create the right balance between private offices and the collaborative areas throughout our building.

"Extraordinarily beautiful layout, and lovely staff. However you work best - in an open office environment, by yourself, or in a shared office space - you'll find a space for yourself within."
