Entrepreneurs working from exotic beaches are not the only ones taking in extraordinary views at work. Recently, coworking space design has come into its own, and start-ups, entrepreneurs, and freelancers are embracing these homes away from home. Because of the rise of the remote workforce, the world’s top designers have transformed ordinary spaces into some of the most beautifully designed coworking spaces on earth.
5 Most Beautifully Designed Coworking Spaces on Earth
1. WeWork Yanping Lu located in Shanghai, China
Once upon a time, WeWork YanPing Lu was a British settlement. Today, visitors are greeted by 23,680 sqft of shared office space and a giant fish tank. The founders of Linehouse design firm, Briar Hickling and Alex Mok, study human inhabitation to deliver a coworking experience which is focused on the element of whimsy.
2. KWERK located in Paris, France
Designers Albert Angel and Lawrence Knight hit the nail on the mark when they set out to create a 33,000 sqft boutique hotel style co-working and lifestyle space. The designers used their travels as inspiration for this coworking space design, leaving visitors with tranquil art and globally-inspired sculptures in each room.
3. Hubba-to located in Bangkok, Thailand
It’s nearly impossible to keep your eyes not fixated on the turquoise networking lines extending across the vaulted ceilings of this 10,645 sqft coworking space. Designers Yupadee Suvisith and Pitupong Chaowakul successfully transformed this mall shop into a thriving artisan ecosystem for both making and working.
“Designer: Supermachine Studio”
4. Kolektif House located in Istanbul, Turkey
It’s remarkable to think that at one point the 32,292 sqft Kolektif House was once an embroidery factory. Kontra designers aimed to rechannel the cold energy of the industrial building into an eco-friendly urban zone. The design is focused around flexible workspaces and synergy across generations.
“Designer: KONTRA Architecture”
5. Neuehouse located in New York, New York
The name may or may not have originated from the German words “Neue Haus” which means “New House” in English. The Rockwell Group transformed this 35,000 sqft century-old manufacturing building into a hospitality centric canvas. This coworking space design brings to life the themes of park, pier, and neighborhood landscapes.
