Co-working spaces designed to help businesses grow
When the original wool mill was built in Brunswick in the 1930s, no one would have guessed that almost 100 years later Melbourne’s North Food Group sponsor John Kallitsas would turn it into a top of the range, environmentally sustainable co-working and events space.
After seeing the opportunity to harness its industrial architecture of exposed brick and high-beamed ceilings, John set out to create an interactive space that looked beyond COVID-19, adjusting to the new ways people would be working into the 21st century.
John, who is a major supporter of a number of not-for-profit organisations and key events dedicated to supporting small business in Australia, said he knew it was important to think long term about the future of work post-pandemic.
“” he said.
“The way we work and communicate has changed significantly in the past year. Through necessity, we’ve learned to adapt and discover new ways of working that allow us to be more effective. Achieving this balance is crucial to businesses succeeding in achieving their goals, enabling business continuity and growth in the current economy.”
The Wool Mill Centre is a socially responsible hub that promotes environmental responsibility with state-of-the-art co-working spaces.
