After 14 months of planning and building, we have now moved into our new ‘hip and trendy’ office in Shoreditch, London. You’ll possibly have noticed, but we’ve grown quite considerably in the past couple of years – from 27 employees to 220 at present. We decided it was the right time to move into a larger office in a location that will facilitate further business growth and position brightsolid as one of the pioneers in its industry. It was agreed that Silicon Roundabout was the perfect hub for our online publishing business and we felt our office design had to reflect our family history business roots in a modern and contemporary fashion. The new office is a converted chapel, spread over three levels, with an open and vibrant feel to it that not only harnesses collaboration and innovation, but is very functional too.
