Managed Offices Soho
We have a variety of managed office solutions in and around Soho and the West End.
What are managed offices I hear you ask? We would describe it as serviced office space but without the “bells and whistles”. This means all our offices are fully furnished with all the telcoms and IT infrastructure pre-installed. And because there are no on-site staff or receptionist facilities, no photocopying or administrative areas, our clients will only pay for the space they are using and not for staff that they might not use.
You will find a selection of the offices currently available below, however do please contact us with your specific requirements if you can not find what you are looking for.

Managed Offices Soho
The 3 main options available to anyone looking for an office are conventional, serviced or managed offices. If we disregard conventional – which essentially means you will be responsible for organizing and paying for everything separately – we can concentrate on the primary differences between serviced and managed offices.
Both options will provide quick and easy access to an office by using a licence (rather than a lease) and charge an all inclusive rate for the majority of essential services, such as rent, rates, utilities, furniture etc. The differences tend to be about style, how the buildings are managed and what’s considered an ‘extra’. Serviced offices are large buildings which are subdivided into a range of different sized offices and will have front of house staff to meet and greet. IT and secretarial services, meeting room and additional furniture hire are all available as extras.
Reflex managed offices are all centrally located in Soho, Mayfair, Noho and Bloomsbury and are in period style character filled buildings. The office sizes are dictated by the original rooms as we don’t subdivide them or create long sterile corridors, but we do provide every office with access to a genuine point to point fibre broadband connection – via a bespoke firewall, modern furniture, in fact we provide everything you need to run an office. Our extras are limited to broadband, any telephone calls you may make and meeting room hire – everything else is included.
How do we do it? Firstly location is extremely important to us, then building style and layout has to work, but of equal importance is the 15 years of fine tuning our management strategy so that you don’t have to do the boring bit, but get to concentrate on the important choices for you – location, size and cost, but this time knowing what your total monthly office expenditure is.
History of Soho
Soho was farmland until 1536 when Henry VIII took it as a royal park for the palace of Whitehall. But it wasn’t called Soho until 1635 when James Scott, 1st Duke of Monmouth used Soho as a rallying cry in the battle of Sedgemoor.
The area was never developed on the same scale as Bloomsbury, Marylebone or Mayfair but was developed over a longer period of time which perhaps explains its more urban feel. It wasn’t until the early 20th century that Soho started to become a fashionable and popular place to eat for writers and artists.
The music scene in Soho can be dated from 1948 with the opening of Club Eleven on Windmill Street. Wardour Street was the home of the Marquee Club, which opened in 1958 and who hosted the Rolling Stones first performance in 1962.
Soho has a close association with Theatre and Media boasting the British Board of Film Classification and Soho Theatre amongst its residents.
Soho has been selected as part of a programme to further encourage the development of the area as a centre for media and technology industries.
