WITHCO Coworking Space by XL Architecture + Engineering
WITHCO Coworking Space in Izmir, designed by XL Architecture+Engineering proposes a holistic approach to architectural design through strategic planning, global design thinking and art.
Övünç Emre, being the founder of the idea of developing a pioneer collective office and shared space in İzmir which will present spatial and fictional novelities, submitted the project to XL Architecture + Engineering whose basic design motivation rests on “to imagine/to inspire”, in 2018.
Pre-design issues, such as strategic planning, business plan, marketing, feasibility studies, budgeting and the selection of the location, are collaborated. Consequently, a collective office and shared space project which presents spatial and fictional novelities is designed in a refurbished warehouse nearby Çınarlı District.
WITHCO Coworking Space, which goes into operation at the end of 2019, includes 75 seperate office units, 45 table units, a 98 person lecture hall, meeting rooms, a startup accelerator campus zone, YouTube studio, café, a wellness restaurant and regenerative-shared spaces.
The ratio between the regenerative-shared spaces with the individually owned office rooms and the overall design enable and enhance the user to participate in the shared activities.
XL Architecture + Engineering sustained his basic motivations and principles for the overall design, hence, proposes a holistic approach to architectural design through strategic planning, global design thinking and art.
