Coworking Clubco is located in the area of the Vlněná Business Park and the name of the newly created coworking refers to the local history connected with fabrics, including its architectural and interior design from Studio acht and the Dutch Vos Interieur. The ball motive develops across the entire space.

“Our intention was to create an airy and open coworking space with a strong vision and unmistakable design. We also incorporated artistic elements into the final form, such as contemporary graffiti, neon installations or original graphics in the form of large-scale wallpapers. ” explains architect Martina Patočková from Studio acht.

The space, spread over three floors with an area of ​​more than 2,000 square meters, provides visitors and clients from the ranks of freelancers, startups and small businesses with about 220 seats. These are one underground and two above-ground floors, which are connected by a generous atrium and a distinctive spiral yellow staircase. Workplaces are located not only in an open common area near the central staircase, but also in closed offices and in a quieter part.

In the basement there are meeting rooms, a casual bar and focus rooms. On the ground floor, visitors are welcomed by the Rebelbean Café, behind which there is a reception, a multifunctional auditorium area with a podium, offices, meeting rooms and facilities, including a kitchenette. Not only the names of the meeting rooms Mohér, Kashmir or Alpaca, but also the information system from the pen of graphic designer Lukáš Kijonka play with the wave motif. His well-developed motif of a ball welcomes the visitor from afar on the outdoor glass of the offices or on the terrace, which is adjacent to the shared workplace on the first floor.

The dominant feature of the central illuminated space is a column with a light installation extending over all three floors and a yellow staircase winding around it. The neon installation came from the collaboration of the main architect of Studio acht Václav Hlaváček and the visual artist Michal Škapa, from whom graffiti in some rooms and installations on the exterior facade also come. In addition to the aforementioned Martina Patočková and Václav Hlaváček, Matěj Kuncíř and Štěpán Hlaváček from Studio acht also took part in the coworking project in cooperation with the Dutch interior designer Bart Vos.

The original design was supported by the architects by using strong colors in the space and in the original furniture. The interior is completed by original pieces of furniture such as Ingo Maurer lamps, Club sofa 4800 armchairs and Vitra equipment.

The investor's goal was to respond to the growing demand for shared offices and to participate in changes in the concept of office space, including defining stereotypes. The task - to create a flexible space that will offer a number of technological possibilities and an unmistakable atmosphere - was fulfilled by the Czech architects from Studio acht together with the Dutch Vos Interieur.
