Let there be light
Optimal light and sustainable features create the ultimate working environment. Every ﬂoor of 262 High Holborn has been designed, and the glazing conﬁgured, to beneﬁt from the maximum amount – and highest quality – of natural daylight.
The beneﬁts of working in natural daylight include better sleep, higher productivity levels and reduced sick leave percentages. The high windows are designed to allow light in, while deflecting direct sunlight to minimise glare and excess heat.
The generous, light-ﬁlled ﬂoors are supported by multi-service chilled beams that help reduce carbon emissions and optimise ceiling heights. Meanwhile, two large roof terraces on the seventh and eighth ﬂoors provide welcoming spaces for relaxing summer lunches, social events and fresh air.
Wellbeing in focus
A health-conscious design to take care of talent
Sustainability is as much about reducing our impact on the natural world as it is about establishing a healthy and happy working culture. We’ve transformed 262 High Holborn into series of accessible office spaces that support mental and physical wellbeing.
Generous floor-to-ceiling heights and abundant natural light create an inviting and productive working environment where collaboration and efficiency can flourish, while multi-service chilled beams help reduce carbon emissions and energy costs.
Extensive bike storage and changing facilities with showers encourage commenting on two wheels.
