WE ARE 20

2020 marks the 20th anniversary of Chiswick Park.

To celebrate this milestone, we reflect on how Chiswick Park has been revolutionising the enjoyment of work for the last 20 years.

Developed in 1999 and designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, Chiswick Park was the first office development in London to embrace the idea that people are more important than bricks and mortar.

Stretching over 12 buildings in a 33 acre site, situated around a central pedestrian space made up of a lake, landscaping and open-air events plaza, the development established a people-centric destination where individuals and businesses could exchange ideas and embrace new ways of working.

Today, Chiswick Park brings together over 10,000 people from 75 of some of the world’s leading companies such as Discovery, Paramount Pictures, IMG, Starbucks, and Pernod Ricard.

Designed with wellbeing in mind, the Campus provides an environment where people take pleasure in working and are therefore more productive in their work.

Often imitated but never replicated, it is to date a true success story.

Sir Stuart Lipton, developer of Chiswick Park,
explains how its vision came to life over 20 years ago.

A conversation between Sir Stuart Lipton and
our CEO discussing the success of the Campus.

Our CEO Matt Coulson shares his passion for a place
where if you enjoy work, you do better work,
if you do better work, you have a better business.

Looking forward…

We are constantly looking for new ways to improve the campus and make it the most engaging and innovation workplace environment possible.

Here’s to the next 20 years!
