Coworkrs offers collaborative office environments for creative agencies, tech startups, and high growth established companies. They have three coworking locations in New York City; one in the Flatiron area, one in the Financial District of Manhattan, and another in Brooklyn. Although all three are unique in their character, Unique Work Spaces chose to highlight Coworkrs Brooklyn for its distinctive design.
Originally a tile manufacruting plant at 68 Third Street, Coworkrs Gowanus offers freelancers and small businesses a light-filled, airy coworking space, with open common areas, conference rooms, and kitchens that put most office break rooms to pale in comparison. The decor in the common areas is warm, cozy, and eclectic. The open ceilings, original beams and walls speak to the building’s industrial past, while carefully curated furniture divides the space into different zones for various office uses.
The three kitchens serve Brooklyn Roasters Coffee and beer on tap. Hallways are wrapped in Mike D-designed Brooklyn Toile wallpaper from Flavor Paper. Internationally renowned and celebrated architect Thomas Leeser was key in transforming the existing industrial space.
