The Urban Coworking Loft strives to provide quality over quantity within their coworking spaces. They hope to evoke creative thinking and collaboration with other like-minded people; which is absent in the traditional workplace model. The most important thing to keep in mind when designing for this company is maximizing the number of available workspaces, while making them comfortable. Utilizing organic circulation promotes collaboration and interaction of new innovative ideas between everyone. Additional factors to include while designing are ergonomics, universal design, ADA clearances and sustainability.
The Urban Coworking Loft is a flexible workspace that allows individuals to collaborate and work together. The brand begins to launch in Helsinki, Finland. The slogan of the brand is, “A Home for Creative Beasts,” therefore the interior space should support this goal.

A playground represents the Urban Coworking Loft perfectly. The children who utilize these spaces are full of energy and creativity. As children, we view the world with an open mind and are constantly learning. Employees should do the same. By always learning and experiencing new things we remain innovative. The playground is very collaborative but, also challenging. With constant stimulation, children develop problem solving skills. Similar to a playground, the corporate office should represent different zones. Since the workforce includes four different generations, people are drawn to specific spaces. Having variety within the work environment is crucial to ensuring a company’s success and employee happiness.
