RRA Architects' newly-refurbished offices on Royal Crescent in Cheltenham offer a spacious, high-tech working environment in the historic Georgian building.

Royal Crescent, one of only a few historic, sweeping Regency crescent roads in Cheltenham, is now home to one of Gloucestershire's leading and most innovative architectural firms,  RRA Architects.

A Grade II listed building, number 16 Royal Crescent is a Regency property that features offices ranging from 227 to 697 sq ft of space — it's even been recognised by Historic England as part of one the earliest important Georgian terraces to have been built in Cheltenham. 

The crescent has a prominent history with some very royal connections. Number 18 was home to the Duke of Gloucester during the 1830s and number 11 was the home and practice of Dr Henry Charles Boisragon, who was physician to King George VI.

Now with a newly-refurbished, high-spec interior, with excellent broadband connectivity, optional parking and a communal kitchen, the new headquarters has everything covered for its new occupants.

Mark Powles, managing director at RRA, said: 'We are thrilled to settle into our new offices at Royal Crescent. The location provides an ideal working environment for professionals in need of a prestigious and flexible workspace.'

To enhance its green credentials, the building has undergone extensive renovations, some including the installation of infra-red operated taps to reduce water wastage and Air to Air Heat Pumps powered by solar panels for efficient heating and cooling.
