Elementa Consulting’s London design studio has grown rapidly in the last few years, precipitating a needed move into new larger premises in 2016. The new location is in the heart of one of the world’s most important business hubs – the City of London. The new workplace, three times the size of Elementa’s previous, allows for continued planned growth of the practice.
The studio provides improved facilities and space for our staff and clients alike with our aspiration to be able to improve features further in line with the WELL Health and Wellbeing standard. The relocation will also benefit from further improved technology allowing more effective communication, a single floor plate enabling more agile working and greater organisational effectiveness and conference facilities for our clients. The move has provided Elementa a prime position in the City and easy access to all other parts of London through excellent transport links.
