“Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that’s easy. What’s hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity” – Charles Mingus
This blog series is about celebrating all artists and art entrepreneurs in fun industries such as fine art, design and photography. In the second part of this blog series, Creative Working Spaces for Artists & Art Entrepreneurs, you will find out more about what a creative working space should have. Let’s get started.
(4) A creative working space should give you privacy and protect your work of art
An artist’s work is personal to them; they need a space that allows them to refine their craft. A space that allows them the freedom to make mistakes and turn them into a priceless work of art.
Co.Space knows that as an artist, you need state-of-the-art security for your artwork and we give you just that. We have 24-hour controlled gate access, an electrified 2.1m high clear view steel fence, perimeter and common area monitoring by motion-sensing CCTV cameras, regular patrolling, access control through booms and gates via electronically encoded access discs.
We also have conduct rules for the Co.Space community, they cover issues like noise, parking, traffic and use. Our conduct rules ensure that everyone gets along and that every storepreneur enjoys their space. When you rent a unit at Co.Space you are guaranteed privacy and the freedom to zone out while doing what you love most.
We have created zones for different types of activities to serve as a guideline as to what your neighbours are allowed to get up to.
The first section is the quiet zone (Block A), which has offices and studios – this is ideal for artists, creatives and art entrepreneurs who have serious deadlines and consider silence to be golden. These can be freelance writers, graphic designers, app developers, UI/UX developers, web developers and commercial artists.
The second section is the fun zone (Block B), which is for leisure, hobbies and interests – this is ideal for artists, creatives and art entrepreneurs who consider themselves to be hobbyists. Most of their work might not be for commercial use but hobbyists take their craft seriously. These can vary from collectors, jewellers, architects, interior designers to decorators.
The third zone (Block C), is the commercial and workshops zone – this section is very active and is ideal for artists, creatives and art entrepreneurs like sound engineers, sculptors, painters and spray painters.
The final section is the storage and distribution zone (Block D & E) – it is the ‘not-so-quiet’ section and it is used by artists, creatives and art entrepreneurs who need storage or whose creative activities make a loud noise such as laser cutters, musical bands, motorcycle collectors, carpenters, miniature model makers, glass artists, and wood turners.
If you crave a creative working space that is as creative as you are, then you’re in luck. Co.Space is your all in one creative space that allows you to work, play and store. We give you the space you need to create an inspiring studio, showroom, workshop or anything inbetween. We give you more than enough room to store, organise and display your art supplies and finished artwork. Interested? Fill in our contact form or request a quote and we will in touch with you.
