Coworking on the rise
Coworking is an increasingly popular trend in business. The opportunity to have a cost-effective, low-risk and flexible office space is appealing. Networking opportunities and the potential for improved work-life balance are also a few of the benefits that make coworking and shared spaces attractive to some organisations.
Generator, Britomart is a little different. Billing itself as “A versatile playground for serious players,” the overall theme is one of sophistication with multiple touches of luxury, making it feel quite special. The building itself has a raw industrial edge which lends itself well to the sleek and contemporary fit out.
The “versatile” elements reveal themselves in the flexibility of the workspace layout - there are a mix of private office suites, flexible desking, and meeting rooms. The layout encourages collaboration whilst small booths dotted about offer an opportunity for a quiet phone call or focused space for one or two people. There are premium board rooms, flexible event spaces, and members’ lounges – all available for one-off events and meetings.
Set above Auckland's beautiful Waitemata harbor, the majority of the floor plan is oriented to make the most of the beautiful views, with multiple balconies offering the opportunity to step outside.
This Generator location opened in June 2018 and two weeks after opening smaller companies had set up office in the glass-fronted 6 person spaces. Larger organisations, such as Expedia and Book a Bach, have also set up here permanently.
