Reedspace was started in 2000 to develop what became The Courtyard in Bracknell. I had already developed a number of small office buildings in London, and wanted to apply what had been learnt at a larger scale. Developing, designing, building and managing just one building type has enabled a greater depth of expertise. Every new building is influenced by what worked and what didn’t on the previous ones, supplemented by constant occupier feedback. The best studios have simple open plan layouts, heavy exposed structure and high ceilings combined with maximum daylight and natural ventilation.

Our geographic focus is London and Thames Valley town centres, and I am always looking for opportunities to either create new workplaces or transform existing buildings (see and I am particularly interested in sensitive sites or Conservation Areas, and am a former Chairman of the Bloomsbury Conservation Area Advisory Committee.
Sam graduated in Real Estate from Oxford Brookes University, with a year at RMIT Melbourne and Hong Kong Polytechnic.
He joined Reedspace in 2020 to increase our green credentials and undertake his practical training to become a Chartered Surveyor. Sam is Chairman of the Kings Cross Conservation Area Advisory Committee and a member of the British Council of Offices.
Finally, please get in touch if you have a building or site that may benefit from our experience – I can make immediate decisions, and will re-instruct introducing agents wherever possible.


The Kings Terrace studio was developed in 1987 and has been our base ever since. The front facade became the Reedspace logo, and it is on a cobbled mews in the Camden Town Conservation Area.

It lies halfway between Euston, St Pancras and Kings Cross stations to the South, and Camden Market to the North.
