Our current working world is in a constant state of change. A flexible workspace is therefore key, working with you as and when you need it.

Understandably not all of us are able to head back to the office at present, but when normality resumes it will be important to find the right space to work from. Our offices of the past, may not be the right choice for the future.

In the new way of working we have a variety of options to consider before making a commitment. Do you need a permanent base or just something short term? Do you thrive on consistency or are you better inspired working in a variety of spaces?

Argyll has a number of services on offer that allow you to choose what is best suited to your needs.

In this article we have detailed two of our options for London Office Space; day offices and dedicated hot desks but what are the differences?

What is a day office?

A day office is a premium, private office for you and your team which is bookable by the day. These fully functional, ready to use offices have everything set up and ready to go so you can get to work fast without distraction. 

No longer do you have to make do with a table at your business unit or fight the intermittent wifi signal on your commute. By hiring an on demand office you can get the professional space and tech you need for your working day to run smoothly. 

Daily hire means it is a cost-effective, no-commitment way to enjoy a private office away from home. Pay for only the days you need it and no more.  

Remote working has become a normal way to work; however face to face meetings are still an important factor to keep your team and clients engaged.

Whether it’s once a week or once a month, a day office gives you the flexibility to work with your schedule. They are available in all shapes and sizes from an office for one to an office for your whole team. 

At a very affordable cost, Argyll offers effortlessly stylish & spacious offices in a variety of its locations. From just £95 a day, you could base your business at a prestigious office in The City, Covent Garden, Mayfair or Victoria.

Day office benefits:

•No monthly fees
•No long term contracts
•Rental by the day
•Fully Flexible

What is a dedicated desk?

A ]wOuH['~71y>>]dedicated hot desk is your own workspace that can be reserved for a monthly fee. This means you always have a place to work reserved just for you in a fully serviced communal office. 

This is a great way to create a permanent base for your business in a sophisticated, coworking environment. It also has the benefit of you being able to use the building address as your registered business address.

It is a small price to pay to be able to say you are based at a prestigious London location and a perfect way to make the right impression to current and future customers.

Benefits of a dedicated desk

•Registered business address
•Use of communal facilities including business lounges (where available)
•Permanent Desk with lockable storage 

Regardless of what service you choose, each booking gains you full access to all of the other facilities the building has to offer.  These include break out areas, kitchens and the option to book meeting rooms with member rates. 

If required the team can also greet your customers, help with administration tasks and arrange catering. 

What is the difference between a day office and a dedicated desk?

The difference is a simple one. One you pay daily, one you pay monthly. 

The day office is perfect for people who pop into London now and again or have the occasional monthly meeting. A great option for someone who wants to pay as they go.

A dedicated desk in a serviced office suits the more frequent London visitor, someone who wants the option of always having a desk to access and wants a guaranteed space to work.

So if you are looking for an office space to rent in London either short term or long term consider Argyll.
