We didn’t say it, The Austinist did . . . in its news post today about the new “public working space” we’ve launched in our “very cool flex space at 8th & Congress.” In a cheeky description of our arty taste, G. Topscher mentions “some sort of evil longhorn skull (inspiring with fear) and something that from the picture can only be seen to have the word ‘weed’ written in neon (inspiring with rewards).” We’ll let you think that one over while you read the Austinist’s story in its entirety, including lots of nice (shucks thanks) things Topscher says about our “well-designed” space.
The very cool flex space at 8th and Congress has been open for a few weeks now (which you would already know if you used Desktime). CoCreate is attempting to find a happy medium between pretty much everything. The space shows itself to be versatile, with a specific emphasis on inspiration-covered walls.
Hanging on to the plaster you will see Jann Alexander’s Vanishing Austin series on permanent exhibit, as well as paitings and various other works including some sort of evil longhorn skull (inspiring with fear) and something that from the picture can only be seen to have the word ‘weed’ written in neon (inspiring with rewards).
It’s a small space, but well-designed. A nice stainless steel island bar sits on wheels, there are lots of tables and chairs, a couple tv’s for presentations and conferencing, plus a kitchen, and the whole lot is lit by natural light. A business and creative service support staff is in house, as well as a shared entrance to the Chipotle next door. Seems like a great place to do a little casual work with your team in a nice central location. Email them at firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing details.
