Designing Co-Working is not just creating a shared work space, its building a Community.

The design adapts to ever-changing workplace culture while being injected with Alley’s own brand of community for a project that will continually evolve with its inhabitants.


Alley’s workspaces are made possible by creating many different work environments that each member, team, and company can find somewhere that suits their workflow. As you walk around you will experience all these spaces blending together. While your team is under warm lighting in a comfy chair you just might find your collaborative endeavor is sharing a wall with a floating meeting room where another team is closing the big deal. Alley is about sharing the space to best benefit everyone involved so that as you grow, so does the community as a whole.

The internal steel staircase connects every floor giving every member easy access to each floors amenities. Each of the three floors has its own theme which permeates through the nooks and crannies of the space. From the barber shop restroom to the cabin fever phone booth, the occupants can engage in an array of unique experiences that are unlike that of a normal work environment. The overall aesthetic is based on the need of the community where the many themed spaces shake off the feeling of being at work when you are working. Even the circulation space created between the offices, meeting rooms and other programmatic elements promote places to interact with even the most unlikely of companies.
