What do you get when you mix an office workspace with a coffee shop or café? The answer is a ‘coffice’. The unique office environment Eminent, which is situated in the Malmö district of Hyllie, has such a coffice. Mixing work and relaxation requires considerable thought and care, explains one of the architects behind the project.
If you have ever tried to get work done in a café, you know that you rarely feel particularly productive. The tables are not designed for laptops, the chairs give you a backache, and you find it difficult to concentrate because of all the movement and noise around you from the other café-goers.
