Spark is the product of a new workplace concept called “coworking,” which is rapidly gaining popularity all over the world. Coworking is where a variety of people performing individual tasks choose to do their work together in a shared location. This creates a community among people who might otherwise work in isolation. Coworking sparks new ideas by promoting collaboration and providing workers with variety and choice.
The site is located in Austin, which is the state capitol of Texas. It is widely known for its large music scene, growing technology industry and natural beauty. The Seaholm Development is currently being built in the heart of downtown Austin, directly off Lady Bird Lake. Its proximity to downtown amenities and outdoor activities makes it the ideal location for a coworking space.After completing extensive research relating to wellbeing in the workplace, studies proved that a common stimulus often affects people differently.
Spark attempts to increase productivity and worker satisfaction, by providing its members with choice through the introduction of flexibility and variety into three distinct work environments. Each environment offers a different saturation of noise, color and interaction, along with natural light and stunning views of the native Austin landscape to spark creativity and let new ideas flourish.
