With the anniversary of our 62 Lambs Conduit street store this week we thought we would ask the people that have worked in the building for Oliver Spencer over the last decade.
Jon - Store Manager
For Central London its remarkably down to earth. People round here take life at a seemingly more normal pace. It is comfortable without being boring, creative without being pretentious, business minded without being corporate. It feels like a place where remarkable ideas can be allowed to grow. Also the light, somehow when the sun comes out it has the some of the most amazing light in this city.
Tom - General Manager
I first visited Lambs Conduit Street just over 10 years ago as a 20 year old boy! I was there for a job interview with Oliver and Marina in the, then empty shop unit at no. 62 – it was a building site! We chatted about store layout, how the design studio and office would be moving in there and the importance of community – I knew it was somewhere I wanted to be for a long time. We drifted down the road to a pub called The Lamb and wrapped up the interview there… It felt like the beginning of something special.
Bleue - Sustainability Manager
My first memory of LCS is having an interview with Tom in La Gourmadina. I hadn’t moved to London yet so I didn’t know the area. The sun was shining, the usual LCS culture was in full swing: coffee catch-ups, lunches, drinks with friends and shopping. The interview was more like catching up with a friend, it was a good day.
Charlotte & Jess - Design
It’s like an oasis in the middle of central London. It’s a great place to both work and socialize, and there is a fantastic community feeling around, everyone says hello – it feels like home! You feel proud to work on such a beautiful street.
About 10 years ago, a group of us spent a Friday evening playing crazy golf on the street, drinking wine from what was at the time Vats Wine Bar. People from all up and down the street got involved, it pretty much summed up the great relaxed family feeling of Lambs Conduit Street.
