CitySpace Fuzja is our first Łódź location – an office building on the site of the former Karol Scheibler factory, where the multifunctional Fuzja project is currently under construction. The location encompassing the entire office building on an exclusive basis is a novelty in CitySpace’s offer. The MIXD studio, known for its distinctive and innovative designs, is responsible for the interior design.
CitySpace offices currently form a network of 12 locations in Poland. The flexible office spaces we provide are available in Warsaw, Wrocław, Kraków, Katowice, Gdańsk and soon also in Łódź.
CitySpace Fusion provides nearly 2,000 sqm of modern office space. A definite advantage of the new centre is its independence. CitySpace, which is being built on the site of the former Karol Schiebler textile factory, is a unique concept in the operator’s portfolio. One of the office buildings, part of the Łódź ‘destinations’ developed by Echo Investment, will soon become the flagship centre for flexible space.
The building from under the dash of the medusa group studio is distinguished by its architecture which takes into account the historic walls. The office building fits in with the revitalised post-factory spaces. The façade of the building will be decorated with a historic red brick wall, referring to the past of the place.
– Łódź is an ambitious city, open to the new and encouraging investment in development. That is why we are all the more pleased that it is in the city of creativity that we are soon to open the 13th CitySpace centre. Together with the architects, designers and the team responsible for the commercialisation of this space, we have been discussing the interior design for this location for the last few months. CitySpace Fusion is the flagship development in our portfolio. Creating a workspace in such a unique environment as Fusion is a challenge, but we have the best specialists on board to create effective and impactful places to work,’ announces Lisa Zettlin, managing director of CitySpace.
From the start, in the spirit of Lodz and creativity
CitySpace’s ambitious plans and thoroughly Lodz-based character are reflected in the interior design of the centre, for which the experienced and award-winning MIXD studio is responsible.
The designers from the MIXD studio faced the challenge of designing the centre, which is to function on 3 levels. There will be workstations ranging from large open spaces, comfortable private offices for 2 people, to varied, fully equipped meeting rooms, quiet work areas, common spaces and relaxation zones to integrate the community gathered in the centre. CitySpace Fusion will offer clients 301 workstations and 3 meeting rooms.
– Before we made the first dash for the CitySpace Fusion project, we researched what kind of environment future customers of the centre would come to work in. Łódź is a city of many contrasts, but above all a city with a rich history of entrepreneurship, and it is for the entrepreneurs of Łódź that we are creating this space. We knew that when designing the interiors we could not forget about the immediate surroundings. The historic Power Plant, the buildings of the former Scheibler textile empire were a huge inspiration for this project,’ says Piotr Kalinowski, CEO and creative director of MIXD.
– We drew from the famous details of Łódź: stained glass, tiles, patterns, colours and materials. We created a modern space broken with characteristic accessories and industrial finishing elements,” says Joanna Mazurek, Associate Creative Direction MIXD.
The CitySpace Fusion offices are meant to resemble homely, warm interiors with all the attributes of an ergonomic and safe place to work. It will feature furniture by Polish designers, as well as specially designed solutions for this centre, such as shelves separating chillout zones to improve the comfort of users. Warm shades of brown and beige, wood and fabrics will be broken by colourful additions in the form of glazing and stained glass. Excellent access to daylight and striking lighting will make these spaces even more special. The interiors are decorated with handmade kilims by the Tartaruga studio in Łódź, referring to the textile tradition and artists of Łódź. The artistic flair and avant-garde inspirations are also evident in the graphics and illustrations by Polish artists that scroll across the floors.
CitySpace, more than just an office space
With a network of offices offering flexible space, CitySpace has a definite advantage over the competition, giving companies the opportunity to provide individual workstations, small offices, creative workspace for dispersed project teams. It’s a great solution for small and medium-sized entrepreneurs, as well as corporates and project teams. Across the country, CitySpace offers more than 3,500 workstations, and with access to a mobile app, employees who are part of the CitySpace network can use any centre without restriction.
– Research shows that although recent events have strongly re-evaluated the labour market, many companies still cannot imagine working completely remotely. Office space has taken on a new meaning, but it has not lost its value. We see this, among other things, through the growing interest in our products. Flexible office spaces give companies more freedom and allow employees to enjoy the highest standard of space. By investing in quality solutions and a standard of customer service, we become a support for companies in their day-to-day operations. We are looking forward to offering our solutions to companies in Łódź soon – invites Adrian Markuszewski, Senior Sales Manager at CitySpace.
