The Digital Age has turned everything topsy-turvy, and that obviously includes the way we work. The newfound connectivity has in turn resulted in an unprecedented mobility, allowing a new generation of entrepreneurs to do business just about everywhere. But then again, they love to huddle together for the sake of productivity, and here’s where co-working spaces come into the picture. Following the launch of its first co-working space in suburban Antwerp, Fosbury & Sons has shifted its focus on the Belgian capital, opening a new outpost in the leafy Bosvoorde district. Founded by Stijn Geraets, Maarten Van Gooi and Serge Hannecart, the trio is on its way to monopolize the co-working market in Belgium with style-infused hubs that not only induce productivity, but also serve as social and creative meeting platforms.

The new members-only outpost is situated in an early 1970s Modernist structure by Belgian architects Constantin Brodzki et Marcel Lambrichs, occupying no less than 7,000 sqm. (75,347 sq.ft.) across seven of its nine floors. For the interior design, the entrepreneurs once again turned to architecture practice Going East from Antwerp which created a variety of spaces, including a communal workspace with a bar in the ground floor lobby, so-called Ateliers and Suites, or shared private office spaces and private office spaces in plain English, in addition to meeting rooms and public spaces. The new co-working space is able to accommodate 600 people and offers three floors of underground parking.

Each setting cleverly uses the building’s concrete shell as its backdrop, pairing it with furnishings of light timber and a variety of design chair classics. Perched on the eighth floor is a restaurant and bar with sweeping views, the aforementioned meeting rooms, and auditorium. Similar to Fosbury & Sons‘ first venue, the premises also feature art objects curated by leading local art galleries Rodolphe Janssen and Veerle Verbakel Gallery, artists Perry Roberts and the Pasfoundation. Two additional Fosbury & Sons branches are scheduled to open in Brussels early next year. Location: Fosbury & Sons, Terhulpensesteenweg 185 (Bosvoorde).
