A fresh new look for the European market...

MoreySmith, one of Europe’s leading architectural design practices, has completed the first global co-working concept for new serviced office brand, Deskopolitan, which has just launched in Paris.

The new space comprises 4,430 sq ft spread over four floors and has already been let for three months to French presidential candidate Benoît Hamon, who plans to run his election campaign from the building. In addition, the building is expected to appeal to start-ups, freelancers and small businesses seeking a creative and flexible workspace in the heart of central Paris.

The design practice transformed the former factory building into a state-of-the-art co-working environment, challenging the traditional office concept with innovative and interactive spaces throughout.

Co-workers are offered full use of adaptable spaces including a cafe, a barbershop, phone booths and meeting spaces, promoting creativity and social interaction.

'The Global Concept' was originally developed for another site called, Voltaire, but it has since grown into a larger project offering a complete live-work-model with a gym, restaurant, nursery and hotel due to open in March 2018.

Linda Morey-Burrows, Founder and Principal Director of MoreySmith said, 'Deskopolitan presented an exciting new opportunity for us to bring co-working to Paris.

'We have really enjoyed collaborating with Deskopolitan since 2013 to create this co-working studio for the French and European market... we look forward to seeing the development of Voltaire over the next 12 months.'

The interiors are designed to offer a contemporary take on the building’s industrial heritage by using materials such as, glazed brick tiles, exposed concrete, crittal window frames, burnished brass and copper mesh, which is complemented by a palette of bright colours including yellow, light grey and blue.
