Pods created from yellow chipboard and glass provide meeting spots within this co-functioning workplace in Barcelona, produced by local studio Nook Architects in the city’s Poblenou district .
Nook Architects joined forces with one more local company to generate the Zamness co-functioning workplace room, which is set inside a 1970s building in a former industrial area of the city.
It serves as the studio’s new long term base, but there is also desk space that can be rented out to neighborhood firms for the two long-phrase use and one particular-off occasions.
To offer pockets of privacy and quiet within the transitory workspace, the architects inserted a pair of enclosed meeting spaces.

Every single metal-framed pod has a pitched roof, with opaque yellow chipboard walls and panels of transparent glass that frame views of the workplace.
“These volumes have been initially considered of as rectangular boxes with flat roofs – the minimal framework for a meeting space,” explained the architects.
“As time went by, we deformed these, transforming them into asymmetric pieces by elevating the diagonal to the roof, rising its volume up to the capacity set by the limits defined by the slab and the hung beams,” they extra.
Gaps among the pods develop routes by way of the space, as well as informal meeting spots towards the building’s floor to ceiling windows.
Nook Architects has previously remodelled a variety of standard tiled apartments across Barcelona by integrating storage into old arched doorways, making use of recycled supplies and including sliding partitions.
Here, spaces have been given a homely appearance equivalent to these apartments, with the addition of pot plants, sofas and rugs.
A tile-clad bar and kitchen spot is positioned against a white-painted brick wall at the back of the room.
This socialising area is separated from the open-prepare workspaces on the other side of the space by the two meeting pods, as well as a third containing a shower and toilets.

The two meeting rooms turn their opaque walls towards the bar, whilst the hand-washing area of the toilet block is glazed.
Wide, grey chipboard tables and yellow chairs furnish the communal workspace. Wooden shelving units and cupboards nestled among the present concrete framework offer storage for books and workplace products.
