[Partners of FutureWard Central] – Yuan Architects

[Partners of FutureWardCentral] – Yuan Architects (Atrium Space design) – We often get asked who designed our space? In typical startup fashion, much of it was poorly sketched out between myself and Dan over many Sunday afternoons at the coffeeshop. But as much as we wanted to do it all ourselves, we also knew the value of expertise from professionals, and relied on the experience of many talented friends and family where needed. – I met Wenyuan Peng, founder of Yuan Architects, around April 2016 and was impressed with his design ethos and experience.  He took a liking to our space and we knew it would be worth it to have him work on an area for FutureWard Central.  So in July, we commissioned his firm to design the rear lightwell (dubbed The Atrium) which is the highligh...

FutureWard Central Named Amongst The Top Coworking Spaces in Taipei

A huge thank you to Coworker for featuring us as one of the 5 spaces that make Taipei a perfect workation destination! Come try us out and see for yourself! Check out the full article HERE.

Why are coworking spaces popular? And how are they different than business centres?

Why are coworking spaces popular? With the many success stories of today’s sharing economy, the benefits of collaborative consumption is evident. Maximising the use of a resource is imperative as our population continues to outgrow the space we have been given.  Companies like Uber optimise the use of private cars while Airbnb opens the door to unoccupied accommodation; the social acceptance of sharing resources with strangers is clearly on the rise. In the city, the threshold for small-medium businesses to rent an office are very high.   Property prices, long-term lease requirements, potential renovation costs, utility bills, maintenance costs, not to mention the requirements for a good location, office frontage, social impressions..the list is endless.  Finding a suitable workplace...
