While the internet has allowed people to work anywhere and everywhere, there are still many who need to work in a proper office. That is where Wave Coworking fits the bill. Conceived as a platform for creative businesses to collaborate through a database of users, it is a 20,000 square foot shared office on the top two floors of a Kwun Tong industrial building. Essentially a serviced office with shared facilities such as receptions, meeting areas, equipment rooms and pantries, Wave functions like a gym: members get a pass that allows access. That pass can be just for a day or a week, allowing visitors to plunk down and host meetings or work in a dynamic environment. “The trend is that people are travelling more,” says Wave’s interior designer Gary Lai, founder and managing director of Spatial Concept. “In Asia, there is a lack of space for home offices. Wave is affordable for people who need work spaces. And big corporations are buying memberships for people such as insurance agents to have a place to meet.” 縱使互聯網讓人能隨時隨地工作,但不 少人仍需要有個合適及得體的工作 間,因此Wave Coworking應運而生。位於觀 塘一幢工業大廈最頂兩層、佔地20,000平方 呎的Wave Coworking,雲集一眾創意產業工 作者,讓他們在這個平台上找到合適的工作 伙伴。 基本上,Wave是個服務式辦公室,擁有共用 的設施,包括接待處、會議室、器材室及茶 水間。整個空間的運作猶如健身中心,會員 需要有通行證方可進入,通行證的有效期分 一天或一星期,讓訪客可以付費享用會議設 施或在一個充滿朝氣的環境內工作。 45
