Foreword

Urban Zoo Coworking was looking for a signature style for their co-working spaces, an interior design that could be applied to each new venue and customised to suit the creative needs of its users, from freelancers to startups and small businesses. Participants were challenged to create a unique space that would distinguish it from other traditional offices, invoking a sense of creativity and collaboration within the space.

The key elements that the jury took into account was the versatility and adaptability of the designs, as well as the quality of the of the coworking space and the dedication to creating a recognisable and distinct interior brand.

Bee Breeders would like to thank all entrants for their participation in the Urban Zoo Coworking Design Challenge.
