Over the last year, there has been a huge shift in the way we work and define our work environments. Many of us have become all too familiar with the concept of working from home. Some of us were fortunate enough to have extra space in our homes to turn into makeshift offices, others have had to make do with working from their dining tables and living room couches. With over a year into the pandemic now, the “Work From Home” culture has brought productivity and higher quality of life to some but stress and social isolation to others, especially to the younger generation. It seems that a hybrid of virtual and physical presence will be defining the future of Work. People are giving more attention to the work-life balance and flexibility to move between working from home to working from work will be in demand.
Located in the heart of Lower Lonsdale, steps away from Lonsdale Quay and the Seabus, Forwardspace provides workspace solutions for young professionals, entrepreneurs, freelancers, and many other individuals seeking flexibility and a collaborative atmosphere with practical amenities. Forwardspace allows those working from home to transition back to working in a safe and professional environment at a pace which they are comfortable with and is specially focused on catering to the North Shore professional community.
“The North Shore mountains are a large part of what makes Vancouver one of the most special places to live in the World. They play a significant role shaping the lives of Vancouverites, and having grown up on the North Shore, we always strived to keep close to them.
While the mountains are still a defining factor of the North Shore, North Vancouver itself has evolved into one of the most desirable places for new families and young professionals to live.
With this evolution, however, we identified an unmet need for professional, well-designed, and flexible workspaces right here on the North Shore.
“We understand the shift in the workplace culture, and flexibility is what we are offering to our members” describe the founders of Forwardspace, a team of three brothers and a sister with backgrounds in finance, real estate, management, and architecture who came together in 2020 and have conceived, designed, and currently manage Forwardspace.
No matter if one is just looking for a desk to go to for a couple of days a week or a private office, Forwardspace has a range of options to offer.
The larger offices at Forwardspace are perfectly suited for companies looking to downsize from traditional office space while maintaining all the amenities they would have had access to. Having access to a full kitchen, shower, board room, patio, multiple social spaces, phone booths, printer room and professional reception service means space extends well beyond the physical walls of an office.
For those who only need occasional access, ForwardFlex is an ideal solution offering a sitting/standing desk, an ergonomic chair, and a locker on daily basis with a subscription valid up to 90 days. To have privacy for taking a phone call, one could pop into one of the acoustic pods provided in the office, or step out onto the extensive patio at Forwardspace and enjoy an afternoon in the sun. Alternatively, based on monthly contracts ForwardPro provides 24/7 dedicated access to a reserved desk, as well as Forwardspace’s full reception service including personalized phone answering, package, and mail handling, monthly printing allowance, and built-in conference room access. ForwardRemote packages are for those working virtually or from home but requiring a personalized reception service and a professional business address.
Forwardspace is composed of minimal yet playful design features that give a character and flair to space. The extensive use of glass partitions ensures that natural light is dispersed throughout the interior and maintaining a minimal material palette reduces clutter and helps one focus better. Bold Green color, a nod to the north shore mountains, covers the entire ceiling, and natural wood furniture and details accents the bright office space.
“Our desire was always to support the community we love, and with Forwardspace, we hope to support North Vancouver in continuing its sustainable evolution to become one of the most desirable places to live AND work.“
