Secure your own quirky office space for creative minds

2nd June 2014 Print
The Limes

Companies, particularly in the creative or tech industries are ploughing money and energy into designing offices to ensure they establish a fun environment for employees to be creative. A recent study by the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota suggests that these wacky offices could help people be creative as researchers. It found that people working in orderly environments were more likely to conform to expected behaviours.

While Google, Apple and Innocent Drinks are among the most innovative with climbing walls, swimming pools and running tracks, those looking for a creative space on a smaller scale should consider The Limes in Ampthill, Bedfordshire.

As the 1960’s listed headquarters of Mid-Beds District Council, this Grade II listed local landmark was originally designed by Sir Albert Richardson and has been transformed by developers Storey Homes into three high quality offices.

While two of the offices have already been acquired, the central office is now available. Designed over four floors, the space features a stunning galleried area on the first floor that looks down to the ground floor. This grand, historic room is the ideal space for those looking for something quite unique with plenty of light and flexibility to adapt to suit the needs of a growing company. It has its own ground floor entrance, quality flooring, data/voice cabling, recessed lighting, fitted kitchen, telephone entry system and 11 allocated parking spaces, all within a gated development.

One of the businesses who has already moved into The Limes is Acentic – a global provider of hospitality technologies, media, communications and entertainment solutions. Chief Executive of Acentic, Richard Robinson comments: “We are delighted with our new office space at The Limes and the location of the building provides the ideal environment for our staff. The offices are well thought out and they provide plenty of flexibility to accommodate our growing organisation. ”

Perfectly located for clients and staff, The Limes is located within a few minutes walk of the town centre, which offers a great range of cafes, shops and pubs. For commuters to London, Flitwick station is just down the road, providing frequent services into London St Pancras in under an hour.

Situated between Luton and Bedford, Ampthill is only a short distance from the M1, which leads to London and the M25 in the South and to Leeds in the North.
