The Hub Zurich. Designing of a Co-Working Space for Social Change.

The Hub Zurich is about to open. After one year of design, workshops, construction (and fund raising) social entrepreneurs have finally a home in Zurich. Conceptual Devices proudly helped this to happen designing and conceptualizing the interior of the wondeful location. It was a great and challenging pleasure to work with the Zurich innovation leaders and design with them the Hub Zurich. The Hub is designed to facilitate the creation of a global network of collaborative spaces where entrepreneurs and social innovators come together to realize their ideas for a sustainable society. The challenge was to design a space that support this mission. We proudly worked hard on it and made this happen in Zurich.

The Hub is already present in 20+ cities and over 60 emerging around the world, to provide flexible work, meeting and event space to create a habitat for social innovation. Centrally located in the arches …D & …E of the beautiful “IM VIADUKT“, The Hub Zurich is 3 min from Hardbrücke station. The project is characterized by two separate spaces that allows two distinct environments for a total of 400 square meters: a flexible working space where things get done in a focused atmosphere and a buzzing interaction space where people can meet, learn and connect.

This is a Hub story. A story of passion, exchange, struggle, fun, hope. With our design work we walked trought the construction of this dream and shared with passion the making of it.
