The MediaWorks office building launched at White City Place on 24 February with a party attended by over 200 guests including many from the property industry and tech-entrepreneurs from the creative industries.

Huckletree, a co-working space and tech hub, Yoox-Net-A-Porter, and the Royal College of Art will be among the first new tenants to move in to White City Place this summer.

Huckletree West gave a presentation of its new “Google-style” facility featuring “iceberg” meeting spots, a soundproofed glass box and a crèche and childcare facility. The creative workspace  will accommodate 500 individual memberships of like-minded individuals representing a multitude of industries including digital, media, fashion, and design, but with a focus on business growth through technological innovation.

Tech-entrepreneurs will have access to a Virtual Reality Studio as well as the option to participate in a weekly schedule of well-being activities including yoga classes and guided meditation and use of a dedicated meditation yurt.

Also on show was a new moveable podcast studio, The Pod, which was conceived by creative agency dn&co with design by Fathom Architects,  and the first transferable studio of its kind to be available for public use in the UK. The Pod is a 12m2 moveable structure created exclusively for podcast recordings and is a fully functional studio seating up to six people.

The Pod is part of an innovative podcast initiative at White City Place, the new creative and tech business district at the heart of the £8bn regeneration of White City in West London.
