I'm grateful to a loyal reader for the latest gushing blurb from agents The Office Group, puffing space available for rent at Henry Wood House, which used to leased to the BBC.

"Despite being a sterling example of modern architecture (even following Corbusier’s 5 points of architecture) HWH has long been considered the ugly sister of the BBC’s classical Langham Place, yup the one with that famous rotunda of corinthian pillars. [Do they mean All Souls Church ? Ed] But we’re not in this camp, as Confucius put it “Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”

Not convinced ?

"We’ve worked with architects Buckley Gray Yeoman to create Co-working spaces and a lounge on the ground floor for Members to work, collaborate, socialise and grow their business....There’s a gym for yoga, pilates and suspension training with a sound system to match. A 20 – seater screening room is on the cards as well. We’ve also got heaps of cycle storage, showers that will make you want to abandon your own bathroom, drying rooms, lockers and are planning weekly group rides around Regent’s Park and beyond."

How am I not surprised that Buckley Gray Yeoman are based in Shoreditch ?
