Laura Foster has created a co-working studio space that is designed with sustainability at the forefront of every decision and, more importantly, how this will impact the people working within the space.
The space is designed for graduates and young professionals, offering a bookable workshop, studio, and desk spaces to house a variety of creative individuals. It is designed as a stepping stone for graduates and young professionals into the creative industry, offering space and equipment to explore and develop ideas.
The design encourages collaboration between creatives, based on research of the effects of sustainable office space and Foster’s personal experience through the Covid-19 lockdown, with a lack of access to facilities and a place like-minded people can meet affecting her in particular.
She focused specifically on utilising natural light, creating thermal comfort, increasing air quality, and biophilic design, which she discovered through her research on sustainable office design. She has created a sustainable space and a healthy office environment for users to work and socialise.
