Spacemade has launched its newest coworking space at its Park House building in Leeds to meet the soaring demand for flexible workspaces post-Covid.
The 4,000 sq ft space, which was formerly a Pizza Express, has been completely transformed into a modern coworking hub for businesses, entrepreneurs and remote workers looking for flexibility and community spirit. It opened on July 15th.
Centrally located overlooking the leafy Park Square, five minutes from Leeds Station and surrounded by shops and eateries, the new location will also be home to one of the city’s best-known coffee roasters and Italian eatery, La Bottega Milanese. The coffee shop will be open to the public as well as those who work at Park House.
Park House responds to the demands of the post-Covid workforce. The building has “Zoom rooms”, contactless entry and exit points, sanitisation stations and workplace distancing integral to the design. There are hot desks, fixed desks and a centralised workstation area as well as seven breakout meeting rooms, an informal lounge area, private work pods and work booths. The interiors are stylishly decorated, with sleek lighting and modern art.
Jonny Rosenblatt, co-founder of Spacemade, said: “In the last year, it has become abundantly clear that people’s working patterns have evolved. Flexibility is paramount and our spaces are designed to help companies and their employees with their new hybrid working schedules. This collaborative and innovative space is designed for people who want a flexible working option in the heart of town.”
“We have combined modern technology and design with the stylish history of this location. As well as providing both hot desk and fixed desks for individuals or small teams, there are also meeting rooms for larger groups who want to collaborate. This space offers private work pods as well as breakaway hero meeting rooms so members can choose the space that suits them best.”
This project follows on from Phase One, when Spacemade carried out a luxury repositioning of the 16,000 sq ft offices on the upper floors after taking over operation of the building.
The new ground floor coworking space completes the vision of providing a truly flexible, boutique workspace, bringing revitalised energy into the area.
