Modern workspaces must be adaptable and ergonomically sound. While cast iron, plywood and hanging plants may be requisites, it doesn’t necessarily inspire creativity. Tarun Singh and his team of young architects at The Design Republic, a New Delhi-based architecture firm, have leveraged the power of design to create a co-working space in Chennai that symbolises entrepreneurship, purpose, and creativity. The Smartworks office, a massive 45,000-square-foot hub built for co-working professionals spanning four floors, was designed with a certain colour scheme and theme in mind.
It took The Design Republic around three months to create a space perfect for co-working and conversations. A functioning café, conference room, reception area, meeting room, and co-working space all co-exist harmoniously. As soon as you enter the main space, the reception area greets you. The small meeting room right next to the elevator is a great use of space.
