Discover our cutting-edge meeting rooms on the 38th floor of the Gherkin. A nod to its elevated position, each one is named after the clouds surrounding them: Cirrus, Stratus, Nimbus, Alto and Cumulus. And much like the clouds, four of them join to create an even bigger space – Cirrus and Stratus to form Cirrostratus, and Alto and Cumulus make Altocumulus.

With multiple screens, lapel mics and docking stations, each space is designed with style and intuitive practicality in mind. There is even an on-site engineer there, to ensure your event runs smoothly.
