Welcome to our Coca-Cola GB headquarters on Wimpole Street, London. We moved in here in April 2014, and have since made it a home for all our employees and partners.
It’s a 1920s building set over four floors, and it was purpose-designed for the 300 people who work here. It has a roof terrace, cafe, flexible meeting rooms and plenty of space for hot desking.
A street with character
Wimpole Street has been home to some famous residents throughout history, such as Sir Paul McCartney (it’s where he wrote ‘Yesterday’) and poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Number 22A was also the address of Professor Henry Higgins in ‘Pygmalion’.
Our office interior, designed by the architectural designers at MoreySmith, is a celebration of our past and our place in popular culture. The ‘heritage wall’ showcases memorabilia, art and advertising from our archives in Atlanta.
As you step through our front door, you’ll see a specially commissioned artwork by British artist/designer Stuart Haygarth hanging from the ceiling. His 6.5-metre-high, comet-shaped installation features more than 80,000 acrylic ice chunks, suspended on ultra-fine wires and illuminated by LEDs.
"I wanted to create something that was literally out of this world, powerful, dynamic and would glow with energy – it had to stop people in their tracks," says Haygarth.
The office was designed to help everyone work closely and collaboratively, with plenty of open-plan and quiet working spaces where teams can come together and share ideas.
Decorating the office
Watch London-based graphic artist Luke Embden decorate the stairwells inside our Coca-Cola Great Britain office on Wimpole Street with a Coke-themed mural.

We support and promote active healthy lifestyles around the world, and at Wimpole Street we provide lots of opportunities for our colleagues to keep in shape, from an on-site gym to free yoga classes.
