With the Code Working Space project, PARAT was involved in planning for another co-working space in Hamburg with around 50 workspaces, meeting rooms, and an open events area primarily aimed at young companies and people working in the city’s bustling tech scene.
Visitors come into the reception area through an entrance completely in yellow, passing a counter to their way to the core element of the 6.5-metre ceiling-height space: a seating stand. Featuring plugs and a lowered padded area on the upper level, this centrepiece functions as a place for users to enjoy some quiet time – or, alternatively, can be turned into a ball pit. Overhead, three large acoustic lamps mark the upper limit of the space.
Code Working Space offers a variety of different areas, including the Flex Desk area, with 12 compact workstations to let, with seating cubbyholes and two telephone cabins providing seclusion when required; the Fix Desk area offers users height-adjustable tables, roller containers, and planted sideboards with storage space.
Spread over two floors, the 480m² space also includes a communal kitchen and several small meeting rooms; a flexible workshop space with its own kitchenette offers a versatile additional option.
The interior design approach takes CI yellow as a thread which accentuates furniture and walls throughout the space, contrasted with warm grey and green colour tones. At central locations in Code Working Space, large-format murals by Stefan Mosebach function as eye-catching design elements.
Having provided support at every stage of the planning process, PARAT is delighted with the end result: a thoroughly contemporary spacewhich encourages cooperative working and networking in a fun environment.
