How is coworking developing in the Czech Republic? Is there any data that would tell us capacity, cost, who the users are and where?

Everyone active in the field of office buildings will be aware of the major certificates. Every A-class office building simply must have LEED or BREEAM certification to succeed. “Green” certificates that deal with the environmental impact of buildings on their surroundings are today a necessity. Every newly constructed office building today must be designed […]

Unless you are Leoš Mareš, Kazma or a similar media star you are probably aware of how difficult it is to be in front of the camera. The camera rolls, you take a deep breath and start to inform the world of your vision. Because the whole message of TechCon: its content, lectures, panel discussions… in short everything that we have been working on intensively […]

Acoustics is really not a theme that can be hushed up, if you excuse the pun. The noise in which we often work reduces our productivity, undermines working relationships and if it persists it can lead to stress and burnout. Maybe you have already heard the term acoustic design for offices. This is a design system that takes into account activities performed […]

As one of TechoCon founder I am not about to leave my dog at home alone. It comes with me to the office and sleeps under my desk whilst I’m working. This article is not about animals in ties or wild white collar workers.

Today’s thirty somethings are a pampered and sought after breed. They have huge purchasing power, and also specific demands regarding work environments. They are happy.

After covering the themes of success and failure, today we return to the theme of coworking. Coworking in all its forms has a significant impact on modern offices. Today we write about sharing and three myths of office work. Myth 1: This is not for small towns. Reality: A common misperception when discussing coworking is that it is only intended for large […]

We have already been producing this blog for some time so we thought we would challenge you a bit today. The theme is serendipity. Do you know exactly what this word means? Serendipity signifies a “lucky chance” or “pleasant surprise” and is not some make-believe planet from a computer game. The word was coined by Horace Walpole in 1754, when in a letter […]

In the given space you rub shoulders with people […]
