Earl of Chesterfield
This prominent building in Ravenscourt Park has a rich heritage: it was designed by renowned architect Richard Seifert on the site which was once the home of the world-famous International Time Recording Company.
Seifert was the architect and visionary behind London’s Centrepoint and NatWest Tower buildings. He and his practice were responsible for creating more London-based buildings than Sir Christopher Wren and designed over 500 office buildings across the UK and Europe.
The International Time Recording Company was the world’s largest manufacturer of time recorders - many of their iconic timepiece designs have today become collectable items.
The building has been transformed to deliver newly-refurbished office space, with landscaped communal gardens and break-out areas. A large communal roof terrace, available to all occupiers of the building, offers panoramic views of the River Thames and London’s skyline beyond.
The building was stripped back to expose the original vaulted concrete ceilings. The exposed concrete has been complimented with a contemporary lighting solution and high quality timber flooring. New building services of the highest standard have been integrated throughout.
An abundance of natural light is achieved through large dual-aspect windows and generous floor-to-celing heights on each floor plate. Energy-conscious modes of transport are accommodated with electric car charging points in the secure car parking area and ample cycle storage with showering facilities available on every floor.
There is 24 hour building management, coupled with an access control system for total security, providing tenants the flexibility to work around the clock.
"We wanted a building that could offer our staff the opportunity to link the inside with the outside, providing natural light, high ceilings, immediate and convenient access to public transportation and with unique architectural features. The Clockwork Building was the perfect option as every design element has been considered. The result is an inspiring work environment that helps us to boost well-being, productivity and creativity."
