A well-designed, prepossessing workspace can have a major impact on creativity and productivity, and one of the most inspiring we’ve seen is this shared workspace in Lisbon, dubbed The Third Floor.
Located on the third floor of an 18th-century building in the Baixa district, the space is the brainchild of the French designer Emmanuel Babled, whose studio is in the same building. Known for his work with glass and ceramics, Babled’s clients include Baccarat and Bulgari.
Babled wanted to create a co-working space for designers, architects, artists and craftsmen. More than just a workspace, the concept is that the space can help foster collaboration and spark creativity among artisans. Babled’s vision is to combine cutting edge technology with traditional crafts, all while promoting an exchange of ideas and techniques.
Babled sees The Third Floor as a place where the past and future come together on projects that are sustainable and respect Portugal’s long tradition of crafts. The space itself is a calming blend of the old and new, with a blend of traditional Portuguese tiles, antique wooden floors and modern furniture. The space is divided into five individual work rooms along with two hybrid rooms that will be used for exhibitions, talks and workshops that are open to the public.
