An imposing presence

Holden House

Holden House is a boutique, Derwent London Grade II listed building nestled between Soho and Fitzrovia, where Oxford Street meets Rathbone Place.

Beautifully refurbished, the building provides flexible, open plan office space with available units ranging from 3,000 to 22,0000 sq ft.

A warm welcome

Subtle sophistication

A marble-clad, double-height entranceway marks the transition from bustling Rathbone Place into the building’s calm and airy reception area. The unframed glass doors flood the lobby with light, complementing the minimal palette and subtly illuminating the glossy white walls.

A wall of timber louvres surrounds the lift area at both the reception and office levels, bringing the warmth of wood to the overall scheme. Created within the original lightwell, the lift lobby areas are connected to their adjacent office floors by a series of clear glass bridges..

A prime location

Welcome to the new West End

The area around Holden House is currently undergoing significant development that is reshaping the eastern end of Oxford Street. The arrival of Crossrail in 2018 will turn Tottenham Court Road station into the West End’s major transport hub. It will provide faster connections to both Heathrow and Canary Wharf from its existing tube services, and establishing the surrounding area as one of London’s premier business destinations.

The transformation is already underway with a growing number of retailers moving into the area and successfully extending Oxford Street’s reach beyond Oxford Circus. The quality hotels, bars and restaurants that have always characterised Fitzrovia and Charlotte Street, continue to define it as one of London’s premier entertainment districts.
