Little large office
In the Kreuzberger BCN office on the Paul-Lincke-Ufer, there is little in the way of big-scale bureaus in the classical style: the large room is divided into columns. On the walls are large-scale works of art by the artist Kumar, white desks with roll-up containers and stylish desk lamps suggest a design studio rather than a workplace.
Art as an office concept
The loft has a spacious open kitchen, a sofa corner and a courtyard. And unlike the Betahaus, everyone here has their own phone. Only the chairs look quite uncomfortable. And whoever thinks he can look at the canal while working is looking deceiving: the BCN headquarters is located in a backyard.
All in all, I like the concept very much - above all, the atmosphere is calm and pleasant, but still creative and communicative.Kumar, who sees himself as a pioneer of the concept of co-working in Germany, came up with the idea because it was his Loft, which he used as a studio, could not hold alone. There are now 10 workplaces with telephone, Internet, printer, desk lamp and lockable storage.
If you want to rent a job, pay 200-250 Euro, access is available with chip card around the clock. Unlike the Betahaus, but not everyone can rent here: Looking for especially long-term tenants "then can negotiate schonmal on the price."
And even if Kumar does not want to say so directly, he obviously sets certain selection criteria: So all tenants here in their job are successful, so that all other users can benefit from the Networkingeffekten.
Networking effects far beyond the office
And these networking effects extend far beyond the office. Not only that in the backyard but also craftsmen, dancers and other artists have their premises, so that you can scoop if necessary:
The special feature of the BCN concept: 7 BCN sites are located worldwide in exotic locations around the world (India, Nepal, USA, Manjove Desert); the tenants are international and above all active in the art scene. And so travel and work can then be actively interlinked.
Unfortunately, the concept of the office to create a pleasant, stylish atmosphere has not been transferred to the website: that makes her name all honor and somehow reminds me of an airline.
Probably belongs to the ironic game with the name and should emphasize the travel aspect in the concept, but it seems a little uncomfortable to me. A couple of nice photos from the office, like I have here for the Article times I would have been more convinced online. Unfortunately, you have to look for them first.
