Private Members Workspace
The New Work Project in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY, opened its doors on July 1st 2017 and has become the workspace to be for freelancers, solopreneurs and business teams working in the creative industries. Housed in a former foundry, it is a ground-breaking undertaking from the Brooklyn based interior design studio, The New Design Project, and the brainchild of husband and wife team, James Davison and Fanny Abbes.
Black lacquer, marble and gold; natural wood, white rugs, greenery, books and statues; simple yet unconventional, it is an environment created in order to produce and promote… thought. In creating this inspiring environment the designers turned to an eclectic mix of iconic items, to custom furniture designed by The New Design Project, as well as items that are the result of creative collaborations with other local Brooklyn designers.
The entrance greets those who enter with the name of the members-only workspace understatedly printed upon the black lacquered wall behind the white-marble concierge desk. This opens into the lounge area where guests and creatives are welcomed inside by a no-nonsense take on old-fashion love seats - these in dusky gray tones - placed opposite wicker-backed chairs. Gallery desks are visible through the sliding glass doors as are three black and white phone booths which offer their occupants privacy. Soft sconce and pendant lighting intermix with necessary-for-working-lights, making it more than a mere workspace but rather, a comfortable place to be.
The result is a friendly, welcoming environment that is rich in textures and layers; providing a space to suit every member's creative needs. “Brooklyn is now recognized the world over as a thriving hub of creativity and entrepreneurship, and we’re delighted to be opening our first location not only in the heart of Williamsburg but also in one of its most iconic buildings,” James Davison said. He couldn’t be more right. With Brooklyn currently being one of the world’s most inspiring and prolific locations, The New Works Project offers those seeking to harness their visions with a very “interesting place to live, work and play,” within it.
