UMA Workspace Kungsbron
Modern and flexible premises, shared areas for networking and space for both private work and customer meetings. This is the idea behind UMA Workspace, a coworking concept developed by Technopolis.
Technopolis is a Finnish company that runs business parks in the Nordic and Baltic regions. The parks include a variety of office premises and often cafés, restaurants, conference rooms and gyms. As a response to the modern-day shortage of office space in major cities, Technopolis has also developed UMA Workspace: a coworking concept for both the self-employed and established companies.
UMA Kungsbron is the company’s first venture in Sweden, and more specifically Stockholm, where demand for office space is at a premium.
“There is not enough space in Stockholm city, which has created a huge demand for modern and flexible office spaces. Establishing UMA Kungsbron in an unbeatable location is a step in the right direction for satisfying this demand,” says Niko Pulli, Director of Services at Technopolis.
Interior design Scandinavian style
To date there are 13 UMA locations throughout the Nordic and Baltic regions and Russia. The workspace in Stockholm is the company’s biggest so far, providing visitors with 2,350 m2 of office space, incorporating 7 conference rooms, a variety of activity-based workstations, café amenities and private office areas. The interior of the office has been designed by architects Gullstén-Inkinen, who also designed the UMA workspace in Helsinki. The interior furnishings feature light neutral colours and have been supplied by Input interior. The furniture and textiles include designs from Marimekko and Artek, among others, as a reminder of Technopolis’ Finnish roots.
Focus on flexibility
Coworking has become a popular phenomenon and Technopolis is aiming to build a network of 20 new UMA Workspaces in order to meet demand in the major cities. All of these spaces will focus on accessibility, flexibility and scope for networking.
“Members who travel a lot can make use of UMA Workspaces in different cities and countries, while those who need office space for the day or for several hours’ work can utilise a day pass solution. Other tenants, such as established companies and also growing companies, gain benefits in the form of networking and making valuable contacts through the community format offered by UMA Workspace,” concludes Niko Pulli.
