Garage Collective recreates an 8,000-sq ft warehouse
The new office space has showers for those who bike to work.
In its pursuit to cater to the new work-life integrated generation, Garage Collective turned an old warehouse in Sai Ying Pun into an enjoyable workspace. Inside the 8,000 sq. ft. property are 14 private offices, 21 private desks, and 30 hot desks. Yet it still has room for pop-up shop facilities, an in-house vegetarian restaurant, and an impressive event space.
“The space is 4 connecting warehouse-converted-shops, so we have a very long stripe of facade as well as a unique structure from an old warehouse – loading bay, mezzanine floor, and a loft floor,” explains Elaine Tsung, founder of Garage Society. Being an old warehouse, the ground floor comes with a 6m high ceiling and interesting features like an exposed brick wall and an old roller gate. A mural by artist Zoie of Zlism gave the space a creative twist.
The Garage Collective workspace at 158A Connaught Road West was a team effort by designers from Studio Adjective, contractors from Kow & Ball, and the local build project team led by Brother Wai.
