Have you ever wished you could work outside? Somewhere green, where you can feel the sun on your face? This summer Shoreditch businesses and community groups will be able to do just that.
TREExOFFICE, a new concept in co-working spaces was officially launched today in Hoxton Square. It’s the first initiative to be realised by the Park Hack project, led by Groundwork London and Hackney Council, set up to test new innovative models that sustain and enhance public open spaces.
Built around a tree, this pop-up office, London’s newest and most unique office space enables those who work here to both connect with and give back to nature. Those who hire the space will be directly supporting the local environment, with income generated being reinvested into Hackney’s parks and green spaces. TREExOFFICE is also featured in the London Festival of Architecture that is taking place this month.
From June 2015, the eight workspaces in the TREExOFFICE are available for businesses, creative workers and community groups to hire for the next seven months. It is equipped with a power supply and WiFi and has the capability to also host small meetings or intimate events. Community groups can book the TREExOFFICE free of charge on weekends. All booking is online www.TREExOFFICE.london
TREExOFFICE has been created by Natalie Jeremijenko in collaboration with artists Shuster + Moseley, architects Tate Harmer and briefing architects Gensler. It has been brought to Hoxton Square by Groundwork London, Artsadmin and Hackney Council as part of the Park Hack project.
