The revitalised Clarence House sets a new standard for workplace luxury, catering to high-end professionals in the legal, finance, and property sectors who are seeking a prestigious and inspiring environment that is designed to facilitate growth while supporting the mental wellbeing of staff.

The concept of the traditional workplace has evolved significantly in the wake of the pandemic, with a greater emphasis on community and social sustainability. At Clarence House, Jolie has embraced this paradigm shift by incorporating elements reminiscent of a boutique lifestyle hotel into its design, combining comfort, style and a nod to residential aesthetics, while transcending traditional commercial design choices and materials.

“We relished this opportunity to create a boutique workplace within the walls of this beautiful 19th-century building steeped in architectural detail and history,” says Jolie CEO and Founder, Franky Rousell. “Our goal was to make the office a destination with a purpose, embracing the ‘hotelization’ of the office space by importing the comforts of home – such as relaxed dress codes, real planting, and soft furnishings – while maintaining a crisp, immaculate aesthetic. This trend reflects a broader evolution in how we at Jolie approach workplace design, and the recognition that employees thrive in environments that prioritise well-being, community, and a sense of belonging.”
