  • 2BOLD mixed industrial and nature to create the M25 coworking offices in Madrid, Spain.

    M25 is a technology hub. It houses a coworking space for startups, a coding school and events spaces. It hosts a whole ecosystem where both, professionals and students in the sector find space to develop, share knowledge and ideas and create a like-minded community.

    With this clear concept in mind, the creators of M25 decided to contact 2BOLD to help them make it a reality. One of their premises was particularly relevant: they wanted the backbone of the project to be the community. The most important thing was for everyone to feel welcomed, ‘as if they were in their own living room’.

    Another key factor was to create a friendly, calm environment in which ideas could flow. In which the stimuli were always focused on reinforcing the user’s well-being within a peaceful environment.

    With this approach on the table, a warehouse from the 60s, located in Madrid city centre, and whose previous life was a car repair workshop, was chosen as the space for the implementation.
    The proposal was carefully crafted regarding the site’s personality, such as to keep its essence and incorporate it in the new project. Therefore, all design decisions were based on respect for the pre-existence, the enhancement of spatiality and improving the welfare of users.

    In this way, the spirit of the building was maintained, giving value to its architecture, and achieving a unique atmosphere that would dialogue with the new use and its inhabitants.
