Workafella caters to the myriad demands of the evolving workspace segment to perfection

The nature of work and the way people approach it over the years have undergone drastic changes, it’s only fitting that the interior decor raises a toast to the times too. Chennai-based Workafella, that set shop in Hyderabad recently, is among the torch bearers of that change.

Offering a rustic touch to a workspace, where every quote, hue and a decor element has a motif embedded in it, Workafella gives enough breathing space to break monotony and let work flourish.The reception area indicates a regal look — an open ceiling, murals on glass doors, a series of red chandeliers, besides the smart use of the vibrant yet not-on-the-face colours. Workafella specialises in compact spaces, a segment dedicated to its co-working sector is an example. Motivational quotes of achievers from all spheres of life, predominantly entrepreneurs, dominate the space, the ropes hanging from the ceiling literally signify the businessmen ‘learning the ropes’. One could recognise that its team of architects have been given a free run in this section.

Workafella ‘s attention to detail with the workstations, the locker spaces set above the seats in the centre of a room, the abundance of walking areas, the flexibility of a wall or a curtain turning your projection screen during meetings, all give it an interesting twist. The workspaces come with manager cabins and in various dimensions. If a firm seeks an expanded space, rooms are connected. The meeting/conference rooms are available to membersas are add-on facilities like lamination, photocopying, dedicated server spaces and printers.

The social hub area is the place to be at Workafella. While its natural light offers a view of the Hitex-Kondapur stretch, comfy furniture with smart use of wood with yellows and the reds thrown in and the provision of benches breaks the monotony of a closed workspace. The pantry space that is for a quick bite at the sandwich or a roll, transforms into a community event area during the weekends. If the event is on a larger scale, the area on the thirteenth floor could also be an option. The tie-ups with many e-tailers help in providing lunches.

“It’s important to transform the work area into a high-energy space; the vibrant colours, collaborative spaces, art works all contribute to this. The quotes across the walls reflect our aim to direct Workafella to thinkers and doers. Technological changes often drive the workspace atmosphere, we have setup a space where people needn’t move out of their workstations and yet they get privacy when needed,” says its founder Vinod Babu, who plans to setup more centres with dedicated offices spaces in the city soon.
