The physical space is your biggest upfront cost and largest recurring operating expense. I believe that designers should understand the full lifecycle of a space…and conversely, owners and space managers should know what it took to design and build the space.
Over a decade ago, I founded and designed BLANKSPACES, the first coworking space in SoCal and one of the first in the US. I’ve since grown my boutique brand to a few locations, and now opening 3 new locations in 2019 Q1. Underpinning this growth has been my tight integration of architecture and pro forma in planning each location.
Come talk to me about all things architecture, finance, and operations, but don’t feed me coffee – I kind of, um, don’t need it.
