Coworking Spaces
by Izaskun Chinchilla Architects

Izaskun Chinchilla Architects have designed five coworking spaces for Spanish cities, three of which have been realised. Highly customised for their specific location and users, these environments make use of an original appropriation of already manufactured furniture components combined with low-cost materials and local craftmanship.

The work investigates how architecture can benefit from creative hacking and, specifically, develops an inventive, versatile and economical adaptation of IKEA furniture. It uses a collaborative and user-engagement approach, space syntax methodologies, passive energy design principles and biophilic strategies.
