19 Wells Street by Storey offers flexible tailored workspace with excellent amenities in the heart of Fitzrovia.
Welcome to 19 Wells
The Deco-influenced building was originally built by Sanderson Wallpapers in 1929 as showroom, studio and office space to support their adjacent warehouse buildings located where the Grade II listed Sanderson Hotel now sits. The building has been modified during its history but retains a number of original exterior features including windows, stone and glazed brick facades and copper roof.
When Sanderson built 19 Wells Street in 1929 to house their design studios, offices and showroom, it was a beacon of modernity. This is where those iconic floral wallpapers were hand-drawn, in a building designed to inspire. And in the late 1960s, it was the headquarters for Columbia Pictures.
Today, it’s been gloriously restored by architects TateHindle and interior designers Universal Design Studio to retain all its period charm – from the magnificent Art Deco staircase in the lobby to full-height Crittall windows that flood every floor with natural daylight. And atop its distinctive copper dome lies a shared roof terrace with panoramic views and a covered kitchen.
Long known as a creative hotbed, Fitzrovia has been home to writers, artists, musicians, thinkers and bohemians through the ages. Alongside it’s outstanding restaurants, it’s now also home to a flourishing scene of independent galleries and design retailers, with Oxford Street and Soho only 2 minutes away. Other notable local residents include the likes of the BBC and Estee Lauder.
With the Sanderson hotel next door and Soho on your doorstep, you’re right in the artistic heart of the West End. You can walk to Oxford Street in two minutes, or Oxford Circus tube in five. And from there, you can be in Heathrow or City airport in around half an hour.
