With today’s generation continuing to push the boundaries of flexibility, balance and location in their working lives, Antwerp’s Fosbury & Sons has recognised the design-hungry needs of its city’s entrepreneurs, freelancers and digital nomads; providing a humbling space to network, inspire and collaborate.
Located within Belgian architect Léon Stynen’s WATT-tower (Working Apart, Thinking Together), members enjoy the comfort of a professional office alongside the satisfaction that surrounding yourself with likeminded individuals brings.
Founded by Stijn Geeraets and Maarten Van Gool — who saw a shift in society’s perception of working — Fosbury & Sons is a new renaissance for those unable to draw the line between work and life; Geeraets adding: ‘time is our most precious asset, let’s make it our own again’.
Occupying 3000 m2, design office Going East created a space that fuses old and new, using natural materials in combination with an ethnic touch; New York’s revered High Line a surprise inspiration. ‘When walking around at Fosbury & Sons, you can take different types of walk and discover something new each time. A new route, a new bit of space’; the working environment reimagined for seen-it-all Millennials.
Guest packages range from one-month lobby access right up to private rooms for 15 people — and everything in between — and include treats like noise-suppressing Sennheiser headphones; a library stocked with books from Antwerp publisher Luster; healthy grub and caffeine stimulations from Coffeelabs; showers, with luxury products from Amsterdam’s Marie-Stella-Maris; and plenty of handsome nooks and crannies to bed yourself into come deadline time.
