This Design-Conscious Co-working Space Blends Home & Work with a Resimercial Concept
As co-working spaces grow in popularity, the largest woman-owned shared workspace company in the country is leading by design. CEO and Founder of Quest Workspaces, Laura Kozelouzek, brings elements of residential design into commercial office spaces, embracing a hybrid, “resimercial” approach that promotes comfort, community, in-person collaboration and creativity alongside productivity to entice workers to the office.
The hallmark of “resimercial” design breaks down the barriers between work and home – think French country-style kitchens, rustic cabin decor, bistro tables nestled into alcoves with sunset views, exposed brickwork and masonry, elegant wallpapers, natural lighting and tufted seating which can all be found throughout Quest Workspaces’ 12 locations in South Florida.
The amenities at each center range from meeting rooms to co-working areas and private rental offices to suit any need. For example, The Quest “Lake House” room offers a warm, private space, equipped with a leather recliner, a faux deer head placed in the wall, and a fireplace to enhance the mood with ambient lighting- making it irresistible to cozy up with a laptop or good book.
The office spaces are equipped with lots of natural lighting, without compromising the privacy of the surrounding spaces and granting access to nature. Prioritizing mental wellness in the workplace, Laura brought the outdoors inside by incorporating biophilic design elements that replicate the sensations of the natural world and aid in reducing illness, stress, and mental health issues while stimulating positivity, creativity and teamwork.
The newest location in Coral Gables boasts a 180 degree wrap-around terrace with dedicated spaces for socializing, eating, and working out. In West Palm Beach, the rooftop is transforming into a zen-like garden space, boasting the layering of freestanding plants, climbing vines and an array of lush landscape.
“Over the last two years, we’ve grown accustomed to the comforts of home,” said Laura Kozelouzek, Founder and CEO of Quest Workspaces. “I intentionally hired a residential interior designer in lieu of a commercial designer to ensure our co-working centers were equally comfortable and inviting as they are professional and ergonomic.”
