Here + Now

Green and pleasant

With its emphasis on connecting with the natural environment, health and wellbeing, Here + Now represents the core values of the post-pandemic workplace.

Previously an outdated, uninviting office building that was completely disconnected from its natural context, we have reintegrated the surrounding environment to create a tangible connection to occupants.

Warm, natural materials banish the cold, corporate touch of the previous building, while outdoor features and excellent sustainability credentials make Here + Now an ideal workplace for people passionate about both wellbeing and the environment.

Its close proximity to Reading town centre and great rail links to London, make Here + Now an ideal location for commuters and residents alike.
