The Center of Contemporary Art in New Orleans opened the workspace The Shop.
The Shop is a joint working space of more than 3,700 m², consisting of several private offices and a coving area. It is located on the upper floors of the Center for Contemporary Art – in a historic building and former warehouse space – and has become one of New Orleans’ most important cultural institutions. Designed by the well-known architectural firm Eskew + Dumez + Ripple The Shop has become not just coworking with several private offices, but turned into a community of entrepreneurs, companies and organizations that influence the cultural and technological development of the city.
As of May 2018, 90% of private offices are leased, and the number of members "flexible" workspace Commons increases every day. For private professionals, The Shop is an opportunity to expand your business in a progressive workspace and work in the neighborhood with leading design and media companies.
Recently, space was awarded Design Design Award from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in New Orleans.
Every year, the AIA celebrates the best buildings, spaces and people behind them. The choice of a building with the best modern architecture does not depend on the budget, size, style or type of construction. As part of the ceremony in 2018, The Shop was awarded in the nomination "Interior Architecture Honor Award".
"The success of the design of The Shop is connected with the joint work with our partners, the architectural company Eskew + Dumez + Ripple, – commented Matt Schwartz, director of the company-developer The Domain Companies. “We highly appreciate the fact that the AIA Institute appreciated The Shop for its high level of architectural integrity, because with the help of this project we tried to preserve the historical appearance of the building".
