    Wenlock Works cleverly reinterprets the warehouses of Old Street’s industrial heyday to inspire new ways of thinking and working for its community of visionaries today.

    Throughout the building, high quality, timeless materials have been used in interesting and innovative ways. Dark, coal-fired brick reminiscent of Victorian warehousing cloaks the façade’s lower floors, while the vast factory-style steel windows flood the high-ceilinged spaces with abundant natural light.

    Much more than contemporary office space, Wenlock Works is a home for the new generation of innovators shaping the global cultural and digital landscape.


    Old Street has fast become the epicentre of London’s vibrant tech scene. Here, clustered in the streets around the now iconic Silicon Roundabout, can be found a diverse community of established digital leaders and innovative start-ups.

    With them they’ve brought a social and cultural scene unlike anything else in the City, plus a very special quality that’s impossible to manufacture – the area’s palpable energy and ‘anything’s possible’ attitude. It’s this vital ingredient that continues to make this neighbourhood such a desirable and inspiring place to be and do business, and is an environment you simply won’t find anywhere but Old Street.

    Old Street roundabout is being transformed into a pedestrian square, with building works anticipated to finish in 2021. The roundabout at London’s technology epicentre is being replaced by a large ‘peninsula’ designed to make the junction safer for pedestrians and cyclists. The radical design sees the north-western side of the roundabout paved over to create a new public space. Old Street station will also have a new entrance way installed in a central location where the island is at present.
