An office scheme in Hull has welcomed its first tenant following a major refurbishment.

RFD Interior Architecture has moved into Anchor House at the Maltings in Hull.

RFD has expanded its operations by moving from 400 sq ft of offices in Grammar School Yard into 1,000 sq ft at Anchor House.

RFD design director Alex Jenneson said: “As interior architecture and design consultants it was important that we moved to premises that could highlight our work and our ethos. Our new offices are perfect because they are on a site with a very interesting heritage and architecture.

“They are showcasing what we can do for clients and how we can mix the old with the new and create an interior that is sympathetic to the existing architecture.”

The letting was secured by PPH Commercial.

Ben Cooper, PPH divisional director, said: “We are delighted that the investment and confidence in Hull shown by Catalyst Capital, the owner of Anchor House, has resulted in the first letting and we are confident that many more will follow. With the refurbishment completed, Anchor House is one of the most stunning locations in the city centre, with units available to suit start-ups and much larger organisations.

“We expect a lot of enquiries from local, regional and national companies due to the quality of the space available and the fact that Hull is now very much in the spotlight as a result of its City of Culture status.”
