Built for ambitious companies who care
about their people, Plantworks provides
6,592 sq ft of prime workspace
across four floors.


Plantworks is a pioneering workspace with integrated urban planting, designed to nurture the wellbeing
and success of everyone who encounters it. This actively growing building is full of
living walls, plants and harvest crops all ready for you to tend to.

Who doesn’t want to step away from their desk to pick fresh salad leaves, herbs and fruit for their lunch?

Biophilic design – bringing the outside in – is proven to make people happier,
more creative and harder working.

Plantworks is leveraging on a collaboration between visionary designers Marek Wojciechowski Architects and New York-based urban farm designers Kono Designs. Together they have created a workspace grounded in nature that puts people first.

Style with substance
The design plays on the heritage of King’s Cross and the building’s industrial history. A palette of dark steel, polished concrete and exposed services add up to the perfect place for forward-thinking companies.

Take root
Plantworks offers you the highest specification with plenty of space to make the building work for you and your people. Workspace is designed using the latest technological features to enhance thermal comfort, air quality, acoustic quality and spatial layout.
Naturally enlightened
Sunlight helps boost serotonin, giving you more energy and helping to keep you calm, positive and focused. A central atrium, roof lights, and frameless glazing mean Plantworks is full of natural light.

Fresh thinking
Spaces that mimic nature enhance your creativity and inspiration, allowing you to develop bigger, bolder ideas more often. Access to plants also increases oxygen levels and leads to improved concentration levels and decreased mental fatigue.

Green workspace increases cognitive
functions substantially: 31% improvement
in strategy, 38% in focus, 44% in applied
activity and 37% in crisis management.

There’s nowhere like
King’s Cross.


Culture, entertainment, food and drink, shopping, fitness studios, parks and green spaces – it’s all here in one of London’s most exciting districts. And that’s why companies are flocking to King’s Cross – Google, Facebook, Astra Zeneca, Havas, Universal, Samsung – they’re all here. The former Royal National Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital is also being redeveloped into a mix-use scheme consisting of hotels, offices and residential.
Head to Coal Drops Yard, an iconic retail destination and foodie hotspot. Or drop into Granary Square for some people-watching and a bite at Dishoom or Caravan.

For some fresh air, stroll along Regent’s Canal or visit one of the area’s parks.

And if you’re looking for some culture, check out one of the exhibitions at The British Library.
There’s also no shortage of gyms and fitness studios, including Frame, Polestar Pilates and Barry’s Bootcamp.

If you’re looking for entertainment after hours, drop into the Standard for a cocktail or check out a film at the Everyman cinema.
