The Nest: a coworking space in Warsaw as a meeting point between work and leisure time
by Maria Camilla Scalfi
The Nest is a modern coworking space designed by the Polish firm Beza Project in Warsaw.
The boundary between free time and work becomes more and more blurry, calling for flexible spaces.
The Nest is a place for people who work a few hours each day, or through the weekend; the aim of the project is to create a welcoming, comfortable environment, not like a classic office.
The existing building designed by G5 Architekci has open layouts, enhanced by multiple materials and a wealth of different details and textures. In lively natural colors, curved panels form a contrast with the rigid geometry of the construction.
Load-bearing pillars divide all the floors and are enhanced by different coverings, highlighting the existing arrangement.
Two custom collections of furnishings have been created: for the open zones, tables and sofas can be combined to form different spatial layouts. The second collection, of office furnishings, includes desks, chairs and bookcases, the more classic but essential items for work activities.
The two different systems allow users to choose the typology best suited to their needs. Each level has slight changes in the arrangement, including the reception area, the lounge, events spaces and conference rooms.
Warm materials and different motifs set the tone of The Nest, in an innovative workplace shaped to meet the needs of modern workers.
