Their motto is: a new work culture. And it’s true, coworking has positioned itself in recent years as a modality of work separated from the business office environment. Homework was born from the search and planning for work experiences that were dynamic and social, so that this new work culture is rewarding for any professional.
Long ago this building was destined to textile productions. Former owners were relatives of Manuel Del Valle, founder and CEO Homework. He and his partners decided to flip the building and rehabilitate it as a second home for entrepreneurs. Its location in the Tabacalera neighborhood was key for making the most out of the space and attracting an audience hungry for a practical place to work.
Homework’s internal operations are built of three pillars: community, comfort and design. These project along another three initiatives: Homework outdoors (exercise and physical activities), Homework sessions (panelists, conferences and debates) and Homework live (the experience of being part of the Homework community).
The interior is suggestive of a loft in New York: furniture in earthy color tones, living nature in every corner, natural and artificial lighting and contrasting colors. Each floor has coworking tables, private offices and meeting rooms; the cafeteria has freshly baked treats from Crisanta and coffee from a cooperative in Chiapas.
They also have stationary services and a lounge room to relax and play video games. The main forum has a capacity of 50 people, a perfect spot to enjoy Monday Movie Night or rent for conferences. During NFL season, they hosted the traditional Monday Night Football for the community.
The terrace has an amazing view of the Monumento a la Revolución Mexicana, where they also organize other kinds of events as well as yoga lessons. It is an excellent spot for working outdoors. Thursdays of coworking and networking are open to the public so members and non-members can share ideas and projects.
