Capital Space, the owners of Milton Keynes Business Park undertook research amongst their customers to find that they wanted somewhere to get out of the office and chill out. They have 100 businesses working in offices, studios and workshops on the site so they wanted to provide a space for people to get out for some private contemplation, to sit with their laptops or just have a conversation in a different setting.

Woodside Cafe will be run by Sue Stanbridge and her team who have designed the interior with biophilic elements which help to bring the outdoors in to create a relaxing and peaceful space.
