If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, determining

what qualifies as a beautiful building is not an

easy task. Buildings affect people in different ways,

from the shape and colour to the finishing touches

and even the friendliness of a building. Changing

fashions and beliefs, new ideas and technologies,

materials and sustainability all influence a

building's appeal. Beauty in a building may be a

step back to a bygone era where wealth and power

were displayed in a palatial property. In contrast,

the bare simplicity of an austere and brutal

concrete building can be just as seductive today.




Beautiful Buildings for Business

London Metropolitan University

Holloway, London N7 8DB

On the Holloway Road site of the London

Metropolitan University, the award-winning

Graduate Centre has been a striking landmark

in Islington for the last 15 years. It was designed

by the internationally renowned architect Daniel

Libeskind, who was master planner for the World

Trade Centre redevelopment in New York.

The stainless steel structure that forms the

centre was named among the world's top ten

spectacular university buildings in the world

when it opened. Further accolades followed with

Building of the Year (Royal Fine Art Commission

Trust) and the Royal Institute of British Architects

Regional Award (London North and West).

The Graduate Centre is clad in stainless steel panels

that create a shiny, ever changing exterior surface

while inside natural light spills in through the large

geometric windows. Spread over two floors, the

building features three break-out rooms and a

theatre with a capacity for 90 delegates. Each space

benefits from modern and adaptable furniture to

encourage more collaborative working along with

more traditional presentations.

In total contrast to the Graduate Centre, the

university's Great Hall dates back to 1896 and

features stunning Victorian architecture. Following a

refurbishment, this versatile space can be used for

conferences, exhibitions, trade fairs and receptions.



Beautiful Buildings for Business

Imperial War Museum North - Manchester

Manchester, Gtr Manchester M17 1TZ

Another multi award-winning building from

Daniel Libeskind is the Imperial War Museum

North in Manchester. Overlooking The Quays in

MediaCityUK, the extraordinary design represents

the earth, air and water in three interlocking

fragments. The Earth Shard is the museum space

and represents conflict and war. With projected

images, observatories and educational spaces,

the Air Shard is the striking entrance and

completing the concept is the Water Shard. This

forms a viewing platform of the canal and is

home to a restaurant, café, performance space

and a deck.

In 2008, the Rough Guide named the Imperial

War Museum North as one of the top ten English

buildings of the last 100 years, the British

Construction Industry named it Building of the Year

(2003) and the list of awards goes on.

An award-winning building warrants an awardwinning

approach to producing events and the

team and the facilities for hosting meetings,

conferences and corporate celebrations at the

museum are both exciting and unique. With 360

degree HD cinematic wallpapers and a fantastic

technical team, bespoke digital wallpapers can

be created to provide an impressive backdrop.

The museum also has its own themes for an

event organiser to choose from, including a winter

wonderland, enchanted garden and Art Deco to

name a few.



Beautiful Buildings for Business

De Vere Selsdon Estate

Croydon, Surrey CR2 8YA

If one of the aspects of a beautiful building

includes the history of a property, then the UK has

an abundance of stately homes, sprawling country

mansions and manor houses. The De Vere

Selsdon Estate in Croydon is a delightful example.

Sat in 200 acres of grounds, parts of the building

can be traced back to 861AD when it was an

Anglo-Saxon Hall, a medieval estate of the Knights

Templar and more recently, a Victorian country

seat are just a few of its former lives.

Delegates attending an event here can't

fail to notice the sculptured high ceilings in

many of the meeting rooms. And with original

period features, including windows that tempt

with their views of manicured lawns that lead

to secret gardens, a beautiful spell is cast.

Located in the mansion house, The Cedar

Suite is an excellent example with its beautiful

bay windows, impressive ceiling and sparkling

chandeliers creating a striking setting for events

for up to 200 delegates.

In 1924 the estate was bought by London

business man and racing driver Alan Doble

Sanderson who transformed the mansion into

a luxury country house hotel. Architect Hugh

Mackintosh worked in stages to enlarge the

hotel adding an east and west wing and creating

the statement house that stands today with its

neo-Jacobean style and red-bricked façade.

Meeting rooms at De Vere Selsdon Estate have

kept with the times too with the latest in-built

audio visuals and smart technology including WiFi

with a maximum bandwidth of 100Mb. Nutritious

food for well-being and a dedicated conference

host further enhance the charm of holding an

event at this country beauty.



Beautiful Buildings for Business

Orchardleigh House

Frome, Somerset, BA11 2PH

The open space of a Victorian walled garden and

the charm of al fresco dining in an Italian garden

are certainly a magnet for brides and grooms

and Orchardleigh House in Somerset is equally

attractive for corporate events too. In fact, the

team at the 19th century stately home have been

welcoming event organisers and their guests and

delegates for over 15 years and it's easy to see why.

The house dates back to the 1800s and showcases

a combination of Elizabethan and French styles

often known as nouveau-riche. High ceilings

and period features set a scene of elegance and

grandeur and with unspoilt views across the

lake and the estate's 500 acres of parkland, it's a

beautiful retreat for a range of corporate events.

The main house features intimate spaces for

meetings for up to 80 delegates in the Ballroom or

75 people in the Morning Room or Library.

From the intimacy of the main house, it's hard to

resist the charm of the estate's Walled Garden. Ideal

for large conferences and celebrations, this special

space welcomes up to 300 guests for a banquet

and 600 delegates for a theatre-style function. The

hire includes exclusive use of the Italian Garden,

The Orangery and the large garden too.

Not just for business meetings, the estate boasts

its own 18-hole championship golf course and

further meeting room facilities in the golf and

country club are also available.



Beautiful Buildings for Business

Ashton Gate Stadium

Bristol, Somerset BS3 2EJ

There are times when the beauty of a building can

be attributed to its flexibility and functionality. It

can also be because of its power to bring people

together to support a common cause and it may

be due to the secondary affects a building can

bring to the local community.

Step forward Ashton Gate Stadium, home to

Bristol City Football Club and Bristol Bears rugby

teams. Rebuilt in 2016 with a £45 million budget,

the stadium is now firmly established as the

West Country's largest conference and events

venue. There is more than 5,000 square metres of

floor space with the impressive Lansdown Suite

hosting up to 850 guests for a dinner or 1,000

delegates for a theatre-style event.

For a smaller number, the executive boxes with

private balconies are perfect for a boardroom

meeting or a sports themed corporate event.

Linking the three main stands is a horseshoe

shaped concourse that offers impressive

exhibition or team-building space. Alternatively,

the Sports Bar and Grill Mezzanine provide a

perfect option for an exclusive reception on nonmatch


With further exciting plans for the expansion of

the site and a strong community programme,

flexibility, functionality and success certainly

makes this Bristol venue a beauty in our eyes.


The Civic

Trowbridge, Wiltshire BA14 8AH

Hourly rates from


Half & Full day rates available too.

Situated in a beautiful town park in the bustling historic town of Trowbridge, The Civic offers flexible event space for

corporate functions and celebrations for up to 900 delegates.

Recently refurbished, the events and entertainment venue provides a range of amenities including state-of-the-art

lighting and sound, hearing loop facilities, a projector and PA system plus free WiFi and flipcharts.

The Civic is available to hire on a daily and hourly basis and event organisers have the expertise of the specialist

team at the venue to help create a memorable meeting, conference or celebration that takes centre stage.

Catering here is equally impressive and event organisers can choose to have mid-morning meeting snacks, a rustic

buffet or an exciting gourmet feast consisting of delicious local and seasonal produce.

A Balanced Meeting

of Minds

The benefits of a work place wellness programme

are well documented with organisations

reporting improved productivity and employee

retention, less illness and a reduction in work

related injuries. Healthy employees equal a

healthy business so when it's time to host the

company's conference, meeting or next event,

consider striking a balance of mindfulness along

with a delegate's physical and emotional health

too. Through introducing a few small changes

throughout the day, a productive meeting

with energised and enthusiastic attendees

isn't a challenge. And the company's wellness

programme stays on track to deliver its goals.


Location is always such an important factor

when deciding on where to host an event so

for the sake of a delegate's mind and emotions

don't make the journey getting there a test! A

venue with good transport links and parking

is better than a delegate feeling like they've

embarked on a mystery tour of Milton Keynes!

Consider a venue's proximity to local attractions

too; for delegates on 24-hour or longer

residential stays, being able to wander off for

some self exploration and leisure time in a new

location is a real positive.

One of the simplest solutions for bringing

wellness into the meeting room is to actually

swap the meeting around the boardroom table

for a walking meeting! For the event organiser it's

easy to schedule into the day. For the delegates

involved it will encourage them to think, develop

interpersonal relationships and be open to new

ideas. Walking meetings improve the circulation

of delegates which in turn increases energy

levels and endorphins. If there's conflict between

people, they are more likely to calmly discuss

their issues while walking together compared to

a face-off round the table.

Gilwell Park

There are plenty of apps for recording so

keeping an accurate account of the meeting

isn't a problem and it will eliminate the use of

paper too. On the downside, walking meetings

work best with people walking aside each other

and in small groups so marching the whole

organisation outside is not going to bring the

best results!


A Balanced Meeting of Minds

Doubletree By Hilton Cheltenham

If a walking meeting isn't conducive, consider

including time in the schedule for a walk.

Delegates who take the time to get some fresh

air and move around are more likely to avoid any

post lunch slump.

Bounce Old Street

With mindfulness becoming more and more

mainstream there is a rising trend for meditation

and yoga sessions before everyone gets down

to the business of the day. Studies are showing

that meditation is helping people to retain

information, sleep better and become more

creative and productive so if a group meditation

session isn't on the agenda consider turning a

break-out room into a quiet space for delegates

to go to in between meetings and during breaks.


Over the last few years, many venues and hotels

have placed a lot of thought and creativity in

developing their event catering. Taking the

wellness of delegates and focusing on the

importance nutrition plays on mental health,

chefs are creating menus to improve the energy,

mood and focus of delegates. Look for the Food

for the Brain national accreditation to be sure

dietary requirements are in tune with your

company's wellness programme.

And don't forget team-building activities and

a hotel's gym and spa facilities can all play an

important part in a delegate's health too.
