Instantly recognisable by its striking asymmetrical outline, The Future Works revolutionised office space in Slough. Connected by the Elizabeth Line, a two-minute walk away (Bond Street accessible in half an hour), it is Slough’s greenest building, ushering in a new standard for Grade A office space outside of major urban centres.



The Future Works has achieved many firsts but above all it pioneers the idea of a better way of working; prioritising the wellbeing of inhabitants by granting access to good food, invigorating spaces and empowering technology that makes the everyday that little bit more comfortable and convenient.

Raising the Roof

An extraordinary and versatile space, the 3,000 sq ft communal rooftop top endows the building with enhanced biodiversity, and offers a rolling schedule of activities for occupiers including daily rooftop yoga and fitness classes. The powerful effect of endorphins from exercising outdoors create a positive addition to the work day. Soak in the incredible views of Windsor Castle that stretch across Windsor Great Park, just down the road.

On the Map

Only two minutes walk from Slough Rail Station, revolutionised by its connection to the Elizabeth Line, The Future Works opens up new connections and commutes. Central London's Bond Street only a 30 minute journey away and Canary Wharf in 50; these once unimaginable journeys now everyday.

In Company

Award-winning collaborative spaces creator, Plus X Innovation, occupies the lower three floors, bringing an incredible network and sense of community to the building through their innovation programmes and member events.

Feel better, work better

The mantra of The Future Works is that if you feel better, you work better. To this end Lucy’s Kitchen, the building's all day café, dishes up healthy and hearty meals and snacks, and what powers any good office space – excellent coffee.
