Not just a pretty space

London Living Wage

We have joined The Living Wage Foundation and other over 3,500 employers across the UK in their pledge to ensure that our amazing staff are earning the real Living Wage. We believe that paying our workers the real Living Wage is not only the right thing to do, but it also makes good business sense. We understand that investing in our staff’s wellness increases overall motivation and productivity, and ultimately makes our ever-growing company a more successful one. The real Living Wage rates are higher than the statuary National Living Wage rates as they are independently-calculated. They take into consideration the true cost of living in London and price of household goods and services.

We pride ourselves on providing boutique, design-led, unbranded serviced office space in and around central London.

How The Boutique Workplace Company came to be…

We were once known as Ventia Ltd: the well-known, well-loved, trail-blazing serviced office provider started by industry veterans Steve Baker and Dan Wheble in 2008. This clever pair saw a lucrative gap in London’s post-recession office market and used their twenty years of experience to manage property portfolios on behalf of landlords and tenants. A robust strategy which proved successful in generating a steady revenue stream whilst mitigating its holding costs.

As the property market stepped out of its recession, Ventia secured its first lease on a Grade II listed building in Mayfair. From there Ventia took the lead on providing stand-out, design-led, boutique office space. Soon head and shoulders above the competition Ventia focussed on creating office space with a difference. Located in beautiful listed buildings in central London, the sites were packed with original period features and individually created interiors. They provided private office space as well as co-working and break out areas. These extraordinary, stand-out spaces were (and still are!) a far cry from the zero personality, typical modern high-rise offerings.

Ventia’s success continued with its steady year-on-year growth and for two consecutive years running, in 2014 and 2015, they were awarded the prestigious accolade of achieving The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100. Ventia also received top billing as winner of the 2015 Nectar Small Business of the Year.

By the end of 2015 Ventia had over 20 desirable office locations. It was then acquired by us, The Boutique Workplace Company. The synergies between our two businesses are undeniable and we have worked closely together throughout 2016 to create one aligned company. Proudly, under the name of The Boutique Workplace Company and now managed by David Hall and Daniel Wheble, our joint ethos, philosophy and core values are the same, and our commitment to our clients, our experienced team, our flexible terms and transparent pricing will continue to be at the very heart of our business.

As we step forward together, our innovative, design-led workplaces will continue to be created with our clients in mind – offering somewhere our clients want to spend time, somewhere clients want to grow their business, and somewhere clients can connect.

As a business we aspire to be unique; to be the opposite of generic; to lead the way for co-working and private work space solutions; and ultimately, provide a distinctly different central London work space that is so much more than just four walls.

Together we are robust, forward-thinking, business looking to hold our own as a major industry player. Welcome to The Boutique Workplace Company.

We take care of your office so that you can get on with growing your business.
