Desperate for a caffeine kick and a glass of wine while you work, all in an inspiring place to get creative?
Introducing DEW – drink, eat, work. True to its name, it’s the dream space of these three typically separate realms, interwoven into one incredible co-working oasis. Last Friday saw the launch of DEW’s innovative spin on the shared work space, with hoards of friends, family and enthusiasts coming out in support.
Inspired by a gap in the market, Elisa Mercurio and Juan Londono strived to create a space that shunned the typical uptight nature of the office, in favour of a café meets wine bar sanctuary.
Clearly designed with freelancers in mind, the collaborative cafe serves as the ideal space to not only drink, eat and work but also to meet other creatives and get motivated. Creators are immediately inspired when welcomed by local art work; an awe inspiring mural of Lisa King dominates the entrance. The space is also proudly sporting a S I G the label pop-up shop until the 18th, from Adelaide designer Kate Anderson
The ground floor and mezzanine work flawlessly to create two separate spaces whilst keeping both the floors connected through an open plan style. The floors’ fit-out, a perfect collision of indoor and outdoor, culminate in a place where the botanical jungle theme meets industrial. Championed by the masterpiece artwork by King, the workplace balances natural lighting, an indoor garden and plant life with elegant lines and the neutral palette, typical of industrial interior design.
Mercurio and Londono have kept freelancers at the forefront of their attention, understanding that such types want somewhere cool to meet people, and most importantly, not break the bank. As though those wishes were a command, a month long subscription for a slice of DEW will only cost freelancers $220. Not to mention it comes with a bunch of bonuses including discounted wine and coffee, as well as access to the studio once a month.
So head on down to Adelaide’s latest and greatest co-working space to drink, eat and work.
