An innovative formula that is revolutionizing the world of work, coworking is more than just a physical space where people can share offices. It is a new model of work that allows people to cooperate in a dynamic environment full of stimuli and ideas. In order to achieve an efficient workspace, the coworking office design must be done according to specific criteria.

The design depends on the type of coworking space

The L'Espace coworking space is an environment in which different professionals work who can be both freelancers and employees of different companies. The plans for these spaces must take into account the new distances to be adopted in the common spaces and define the new modes of interaction.

The design of spaces and furniture must be developed with solutions that not only create unique workstations, but also promote and simplify collaboration and competitiveness among users. There are different types of coworking spaces.

Modern coworking space

For a modern coworking space, it is advisable to use thin tables that act as desks, with a geometric or linear design. Install a glossy wooden floor and place spotlights on the ceiling and on the sides of the walls. It is also possible to create a false ceiling to give a more aesthetic effect in the center of the room. It is recommended to furnish everything with more ergonomic office furniture.

Opt for very soft and light colors, in particular, pearly white or beige for the walls. You can already get an idea on the painting quote from the professionals at Allotravaux. For those who want more insulation, it is recommended to install a bay window to get more focus.

Coworking space with partitions

For a demanding coworking space, it is possible to create a mezzanine and set up a few desks in the center of the room using office partitions. If you want, it is possible to put mats on the floor, perhaps to stay more relaxed and work more comfortably with your laptop. You can find different types of partitions depending on technical and aesthetic needs:

  • Wood partitions: there are different qualities of wood such as precious wood, solid wood, glued laminated wood or veneer. You can also add melamine conglomerate wood panels or with a structured finish, an aesthetic solution at low cost.
  • Glass partitions: the aesthetic advantages of the glass partition are mainly transparency, permeability and lightness. Transparent glass allows light to pass through and therefore makes rooms brighter. The glass partition also has good sound insulation, especially in double or triple glazing.
  • The equipped partitions : useful for dividing, furnishing and equipping offices. They are easy to install and can replace traditional masonry walls.
  • Removable partitions: the end result with removable partitions depends strictly on different types of considerations in which functionality, aesthetic impact and space efficiency are combined.

Outdoor coworking space

If you want to set up an outdoor coworking space, the plan must be fundamental, as you need to find a subtle balance between interaction and privacy. Therefore, use long tables like banquet tables or large round tables, as they are perfect for working. Be sure to include any stand-alone or heavily partitioned workstations. One suggestion that encourages interaction is the use of glass panels as dividers between desks.

Important things to keep in mind

Natural light

We need light for energy and growth, which is why offices should have sufficient natural light, as it is beneficial to health and can stimulate creativity. The presence of doors and parts of the glass walls promotes the diffusion of light.

In case the office is located in a place that is too dark, it is possible to use lamps that have a high lumen to be placed on each desk. Install lights such as simple sphere-shaped chandeliers that create a relaxing atmosphere.

Meeting and breakout room

It is very important to create one or more meeting and breakout rooms using soundproof partitions. They offer users the opportunity to exchange, take coffee breaks and start collaborations.

Lockers

Special personal lockers within the coworking space prove to be the winning choice to ensure that each employee has a space to store their personal belongings throughout their stay inside the structure.

Gypsum board ceilings

Gypsum board ceilings fit any style and need. They allow you to hide heating and air conditioning systems. With many finishes available, they can give a classic or modern touch to rooms. They can be used to lower, veil, overhang or transformed into any shape, even curvilinear, thanks to the flexibility of the sheets.
