Duchess Investment Holdings Ltd, a joint venture between Investec and Argo Real Estate clients, acquired the Grade II* listed building in 2016. Originally designed by the Adam Brothers, it now offers 13,000sqft of serviced office space with a wealth of communal areas including a café/bar, a lounge, meeting rooms, kitchens and an external courtyard garden.

The listed building’s historic character has been carefully restored through sympathetic refurbishment, with new materials, lighting and furniture being carefully chosen to elevate and enhance the existing architecture.
