There is something I always find cool about coworking spaces: the story of the building it’s located in. Nomad Workspace is a perfect illustration for that. Let me tell you more!
We made our way (with the help of our friend Google Maps) up to the street of Nomad Workspace in Copenhagen. Still, I was not sure if this was the right place. From the outside, the building looked like a former bank. As the door was open and a lot of construction seemed to be going on inside, we decided to enter.
Right from the entrance, I got completely amazed by the interior of the building and I still was not sure if we were at Nomad Workspace or not. With very high ceilings, wooden floor, amazing windows and huge staircase, this building looked to me like it had a lot to tell. We looked around and could not find anyone. We decided to climb up the stairs, to ask if this was Nomad Workspace or not. Right there, we met Oliver, the CEO of Nomad Workspace, who confirmed we were at the right spot. I immediately felt super excited to have a tour and hear the story of that emerging coworking place.
To understand Nomad Workspace, it took us a bit of imagination and creativity. Indeed, when we visited it, it was still under construction, with workers around polishing the floors, painting some walls, etc. I loved it. The building used to be a former courthouse. Now that you know a bit more about its story, join me in imagining how it can be inside. From the basement to the upper floor, each room has a story to tell. A former prison cell, a former court, we were like kids discovering Christmas presents every time a door opened. But, obviously, it did not stop there. At some point, we looked at the back window and we saw something that somehow seemed to be a prison. I could not believe it was one, as we were literally in the heart of the city. But yes it is. It is a jail that you can see from the window. Prisoners were playing basketball, football and just hanging around there. I did not need more to be over-impressed by the story of the space. Oliver told us afterward that the prison is supposed to move away from there very soon.
Now, let me tell you more about Nomad Workspace. Its story and start are very much linked to the story of its founders. With a background in the creative digital field, the core team decided to set up a space for the creative minds. Nomad Workspace is tailored to design lovers, fashion experts, PR rockstars, creative studios or any other professions that require creativity. The interior design is absolutely gorgeous. The colors, the furniture, everything is set up to make you feel in a creative nest, giving you space and time to focus on what matters for you. Nomad Workspace wants to offer its members a beautiful location where they can have their clients coming over but also collaborate with other creative professionals inside the building.
When we visited the place, there was still a bit of work to do to officially open. Now, Nomad Workspace has opened its door and I have to say that we can’t wait to go back to see how it looks!
We chose the best location ever to do our selfie:
1/ Yes, there is a big saw
2/ Yes my jacket matches the walls 🙂
Thanks Oliver for having us!
