Landmark Transform Heron Tower’s Blank Canvas
Members of serviced office provider Landmark plc attended the Wimbledon Summer Shows at University of the Arts London over the weekend, in support of the graduating Fine Art students from Wimbledon College of Art.
As well as sponsoring the event and giving graduates the chance to see their work in high profile business locations throughout the City of London, Landmark also attended the event to find a number of original works of art for their newest serviced office centre – Heron Tower – which is set to open next month.

As the City’s tallest building and one of the most prominent developments in the capital of recent years, Heron Tower provides an exciting location for the students’ work to be displayed, giving the artists the chance to elevate their profile as well as enhancing the work environment for clients.
Commenting on Landmark’s involvement, George Blacklock, Dean of Wimbledon College of Art, said:
“We are very grateful for Landmark’s continued support of our graduating Fine Art students as they launch into their professional lives. This relationship between art and business is increasingly important and we are delighted to be working closely with Landmark for a fourth year.”
As well as offering support to the students at Wimbledon College of Art by being a member of the judging panel for the Landmark plc Fine Art Award, and contributing financially to the annual Fine Art Show catalogue, the serviced office company regularly purchases work from the College’s Fine Art students.
Landmark’s art collection currently comprises over 400 original pieces, most of which are on display in their five serviced office locations throughout the City of London.
Mr Blacklock added: “Several of our graduates’ works are already on display across Landmark’s serviced office centres and we are pleased that this yearΓÇÖs graduates will also have the opportunity to have their work displayed in such a prestigious setting as Landmark’s new centre at Heron Tower.”
Richard Gill, Managing Director of Landmark, said: “As we prepare to open our fifth serviced office centre, at the iconic Heron Tower, we are pleased to be looking specifically for original pieces from young talented artists to be displayed in the City’s newest and tallest building.”
