From the ground floor where a “speed gate” authorizes entrance, personal care provided with technology is visible. With an ID card allowing admissions to the main gate as well as elevator uses, tight security and safety is ensured for every member. Once you go up to the 10th floor of the building, you can find the spacious lounge with a polished industrial vibe reflecting the company’s unique and refined aesthetics.
Co-working space is a visible trend nowadays. Even within Seoul, you can easily find both local and global players of varying sizes and specs. With such growing array of options, we've come to think: what are the essential criteria for such establishments? While the central, business-friendly location and environment of certain aesthetics — with which most of them market themselves — do remain as a core element, what is needed is a lot more than, say, a hotel lobby lounge with a business center. They should, if at all possible, offer both tangible and intangible resources necessary to sustain individual and organizational performance, for all members to thrive: beyond pursuing productivity, proactively engaging themselves in creating the future that they envision. Fortunately, we will soon be accommodating such an option in Seoul, with Studio Black opening in the Gangnam Station area in January. From its facilities to every little tangible and intangible detail, Studio Black reflects the expertise and know-hows that have led Hyundai Card, the company behind the top-notch co-working space, to its groundbreaking success.
