We're a friendly bunch

At Desklodge, we strongly believe that where you work affects how you work. Our founder, Tom Ball, was struck by inspiration when Google opened its new office in 2003 in London, which was filled with unusual and eccentric workspaces. He saw how this new way of working increased their employee’s creativity and productivity and thought ‘why can't we all work in an office like this?’ And so, DeskLodge was born. The concept of inspiring productivity through imaginative workspaces has stayed the same since the first DeskLodge opened its doors, back in 2012.

Come as you are

DeskLodge will always be a home-from-home workplace. Being a place where everyone is welcome is something we’re proud of but always working on, too.

Atmosphere is everything

Whether it’s a friendly hello, the smell of freshly brewed coffee or the promise of an after-work social, an upbeat atmosphere is what DeskLodgers love and need to do their best work.

We've come a long way since our humble beginnings
