Savills Workplace & Design have worked with Kingsley Napley, the London based internationally recognised law firm, developing their future short and long term real estate strategies since 2015.

In 2018, Kingsley Napley selected 20 Bonhill as its new headquarters, embracing a departure from traditional legal workplace norms by choosing an open-plan, activity-based work environment in Shoreditch, a tech company hub.

This decision reflects the firm’s dedication to diversity, inclusion, and nurturing a positive culture. The building radiates warmth and professionalism, featuring soft, natural finishes, an impressive entrance, and abundant natural light. The space serves both clients and staff, offering flexible event areas, accessible design, and a dedicated client suite with unique meeting rooms. On the working floors, an agile environment provides various settings, promoting privacy and productivity while preserving a sense of connection. The floors are equipped with sensors for space optimisation, and a range of amenities, including a staff dining area, silent working areas, and smart lockers. Additional facilities such as treatment rooms, fitness studios, and meditation spaces support staff well-being.

The building’s inclusivity, commitment to accessibility, and focus on unified, high-quality service delivery underscore Kingsley Napley’s mission, ensuring long-term staff retention and client satisfaction. The project stands as a testament to the firm’s social agenda and promises a bright future for all involved.

Continuing the wellness objectives, specific attention has been given to the cycling facilities, which often are less appealing than other amenities.   The showers are gender-neutral, with colour identification for each service provided.  The accessibility of the office extends with the provision of not only shower facilities but accessible vanity units in the grooming area.  Smart lockers are provided in addition to a towel service for users.

The overwhelming impression of the new offices is that of cohesion, attention to detail and calm reassurance.  The importance of KN’s one-firm approach is supported by the accessibility of all spaces to all members of staff and offering them the work settings to deliver the quality services that their existing clients expect and new clients will benefit from.

Opening quote (Mobile)

We are delighted with the design and fit out of our beautiful new building at 20 Bonhill. It has met, and indeed exceeded, all our hopes and expectations. I enjoy seeing – and hearing - the excitement and delight of my colleagues, especially when they visit the building for the first time. The attention to every detail, the quality of the materials and finishes, as well as achievement of our overall vision is very satisfying. It’s a great example of what we can achieve when we work well together.
