Warehouse coworking is quickly becoming a popular way to work and by looking at these spaces it’s easy to understand why. We’ve rounded up some of the world’s best warehouse-style offices to serve as beautiful inspiration for your own workspace.
A warehouse-style office isn’t just a great look – it says a lot about your business too. At an instinctive level, it conjures connotations of resourcefulness, creativity and authenticity. Before you even say anything, it indicates that your team is down-to-earth and hard-working, and that your business can do more with less. Not a bad impression to get across to your clients.
Recently, our CEO and founder Grant Philipp had a chat to the Fifth Estate about why turning neglected warehouses into stunning coworking spaces is good business and offers something unique the pristine high-rise building can not. With open and interactive areas which encourage movement; high ceilings and large windows to maximise natural light; different natural textures to keep the mind stimulated – they all contribute to a more engaged, inspired and motivated workforce.
“Warehouses also offer the “wow factor” of a ground-floor entrance, and the big trend is creating a public space at street level, such as a café that attracts foot traffic. That foot traffic often includes the kinds of people who convert to tenants in these spaces,” says Grant.
So with all of this in mind, we’ve put our heads together and found some of the most beautiful office spaces in the world – all with those coveted warehouse vibes that’ll have your team working harder and clients falling at your feet.
Go Work is the undisputed king of warehouse styling and this Jakarta coworking space only scratches the surface. They have eight creative serviced offices across the Indonesian capital, all showcasing different takes on the industrial design. We love the painted ceiling pipes and juxtaposition of rough wood with smooth metal – hallmark characteristics of the warehouse style.
Wow – imagine working with this view! This Melbourne office space is uniquely housed in a repurposed 19th century tram depot and finished with whites and wooden textures for a Scandinavian take on the warehouse trend. Add some green plants and ergonomic furniture, and voila – one of Melbourne’s most beautiful coworking spaces is born.
