Real estate experts predict that there could be 37,000 coworking spaces worldwide by the end of 2018. We believe it, based on the trend that we’ve seen in the demand for this type of space, like this fit-out project for Workbar. The program included open plan offices, conference rooms, and amenity areas. For our design, we reuse the existing HVAC and electrical systems.

What makes this project interesting is that it was the first co-working space to achieve the WELL building standard, incorporating all seven WELL concepts into the design and build-out: air, mind, water, nourishment, light, fitness, and comfort.

To achieve WELL certification, we designed the MEP/FP systems to support cutting edge smart-lighting, energy efficiency and water conservation, smart heating and cooling sensors, pollution management systems, and a water filtration system.
