I’ve become accustomed to the rather bohemian shared office workspaces where ‘smart’ desks are rented out by the hour, and furniture is often converted packing crates, but a recent meeting request to Travail in Melrose Arch changed my perspective completely.

They say that their ‘space’ “appeals to all your senses to create an experience that will allow you to innovate, engage and be productive”, and their description could not be more accurate. They offer a professional environment, one that’s be considerately designed by a specialist, offering the professional a work & meet area that could sit quite happily be in the pages of a design magazine.

Further, all the modern tech is offered; high speed and uncapped WiFi,USB charging points, uninterrupted power supply, standby generators bespoke check in/check out membership and reservation systems, LCD TV screens streaming current affairs and news, presentation and video/tele conferencing.

Attention has been given to the smallest detail; the colour, the ornaments, the fittings and the furniture, and the ambience oozes sophistication. Whether you’re a Chanel or Ben Sherman, you’ll find Travail perfectly suited to your nomadic/cowork/networking needs.

They say, “at Travail we offer a new urban lifestyle and champion the workspace of tomorrow which leverages technology to make your work life as intuitive as possible”, and it’s an appropriate description.

And, of course, Melrose Arch is the perfect setting for such an offering …
