After 11 fantastic years at our office in Generator Studios, hedgehog lab is all packed up and ready to move into Newcastle’s newest smart, sociable and sustainable office accommodation, One Strawberry Lane

Following our acquisition of Netsells last year, it’s the perfect time to settle into a new base for our extended team and enhanced service offering

As we work towards our B Corp Certification this year, One Strawberry Lane’s focus on environmental impact and renewable energy was the ideal choice for our new hedgehog space. From its BREEAM excellent rating (acquired by only the top 10% of UK new non-domestic buildings) to its living-wall-lined atrium and extensive cycle-to-work facilities, One Strawberry Lane sets the gold standard for hybrid working with a social conscience.

With six floors of inspiring workspace as well as co-working pods and designated meeting areas, we’ve already got a pipeline of plans for exclusive event hosting, podcast recordings  and – of course – doing what we do best: delivering human-centred, empathy-driven digital solutions for forward-thinking businesses. 

“The new office is the perfect base for a global tech company like ourselves. Not only is the space beautiful to look at but it’s also functional and promotes collaborative working, which is really important to us. Being right in the heart of the city will be a big plus for our team too.” Aimé Watson Bachini, People and Culture Lead

At hedgehog lab, we’ve been proudly operating on a fully flexible basis since 2012, enabling our team to work in ways that’s best for them. One Strawberry Lane is one of the first offices in the UK to be specifically designed for the new hybrid ways of working, aligning seamlessly with our continued Flexa-certified commitments to autonomy and work-life balance. 

The building benefits from SmartScore certification – the highest possible global accreditation for modern buildings and our bespoke office will include soundproof privacy pods for individual online meetings, as well as capacity for up to 35 people for optimal collaboration opportunities.

“One of the key features of One Strawberry Lane is its inclusive nature. It is very much a space where tenants can interact and share best practice and support each other. We are thrilled to have hedgehog lab as our latest tenant. It’s an organisation that shares our values and general outlook on a number of fronts. We look forward to sharing this wonderful space with them.” Nathalie Baxter, head of workspace at Home Group which owns the building

Along with Home Group, Connected Voice and Armstrong Watson, we’re in good company. And are looking forward to meeting, challenging and creating new ideas with other like-minded, innovative businesses in the North East. Plus, it goes without saying that our die-hard Newcastle United fans are thrilled to have an office window that overlooks St. James’ Park and the much-anticipated fan zone set to open in Spring 2024.

Are you looking for a new challenge this year? Are you passionate about what you do and want to share that passion with like-minded people within a company that prioritises its culture? Then we want to hear from you! Check out our careers page for our latest vacancies or to send us your CV.
