Two architects, an office, and expansion plans. What started as a personal office, slowly grew in design, space and aesthetic (must be those architect inklings), and is now a community and co-working space called Unboxed that makes us want to drive all the way to Noida.
Bare brick walls, earthy tones, beige blinds and chicks, long, wooden shared tables, hammocks, and design accents that can only best be described as detailed, the entire office looks like snapshots from a Pinterest board. Home to a mix of architects, interior designers, a young urban farmer, and tech and other start-ups, Unboxed strives to create more of a community, rather than an office, so coming in to work has more meaning. They’re modelled as a plugin and play concept, where save the machine, they’ll provide every other facility. Think Wi-Fi, cafeteria, lounge, printer, scanner, photocopy machine, projector screen, 24x7 professional security, common reception area, conference halls, and of course, your very own work station. And for when you’re not in the mode to work? Kick back in their recreation room, with a Table Tennis table, or literally kick back in the hammock.
The founders themselves work on the premises, not in the shared space though, but guarantee a daily get together over coffee, tea, and lounging around. Unboxed also hosts regular events, so stay tuned on what’s coming up next. As for pricing, it is pretty affordable. A seat in the open shared workspace will cost you INR 5,500 per seat/month while a private cabin for three or more people will cost you INR 6,500 per seat/month.
