Designing a successful coworking space

How can the design of a space encourage collaboration and innovation? One of the most engaging events at the recent Coworking Europe Conference was the design workshop led by the team from TILT, a studio that specializes in collaborative workspaces. The results were so interesting that we asked Oliver Marlow from Tilt to write a special guest post for Deskmag to summarize the outcome. Here Oliver presents his overview from the workshop, a great resource for anyone designing a coworking space. First rule: A coworking space should be in perpetual beta, constantly changing to reflect its members. The questions asked were:

  1. How can the design of a space encourage collaboration and innovation?
  2. How is the community mapped and visually represented in the space?
  3. How can the design of space promote autonomous behaviour from its members?
