SpaceInvader reinvigorates Central House, Harrogate for property group CEG

The Leeds studio of Northern design giants SpaceInvader has completed a three-year CAT A project to reinvigorate the public and common areas of Central House, Harrogate, a four-storey building providing local companies with 168,000 sq ft of office space, car parking and associated facilities, for property group client CEG.

When SpaceInvader was first instructed, this popular building on Harrogate’s Otley Road, heading north out of the famous spa town and situated almost directly opposite the famous RHS Garden at Harlow Carr, was already fully tenanted, with flexible floorplates offering suites from 1,000 to 11,400 sq ft.

This meant that the refurbishment scheme wasn’t primarily about attracting new or particular target tenants, but more about unlocking the potential of the interior, creating new places for people to dwell and appreciate the building, as well as future-proofing by time-sensitive investment.
