Brooklyn based interior design studio The New Design Project is pleased to announced the opening of The New Work Project, a private members workspace for individuals and businesses in the creative industries. Located on 97 N 10th St in Williamsburg, in a former foundry that was most recently home to Vice Media, it will support freelancers, solopreneurs and teams from creative industries including: advertising, PR and marketing; architecture and design; TV, film and media; fashion and publishing.
The New Work Project is a design-led, service-oriented workspace that sits at the crossroads of hospitality and coworking, and is the latest venture by former bankers, and husband and wife team, James Davison and Fanny Abbes.
Members are able to work from lounge areas, assigned gallery desks or private studios, and have access to high workstations, break out areas and conference rooms. The interior design of the space pairs iconic midcentury pieces with custom furniture by The New Design Project, uses black and brass accent lighting, and showcases collaboration with other local Brooklyn designers such as J.M. Szymanski and Eskayel.
The New Work Project is located at the epicentre of Brooklyn’s creative hub, just off the fashionable Wythe Avenue corridor in north Williamsburg, an 8-minute walk from both the Bedford L and Nassau G subway stops, well served by taxis, buses and Citi Bikes, and surrounded by shops, bars, restaurants, hotels and other creative businesses.
“Brooklyn is now recognised the world over as a thriving hub of creativity and entrepreneurship, and we’re delighted to be opening our first location not only in the heart of Williamsburg but also in one of its most iconic buildings”, James Davison, Managing Partner of The New Project Group, commented. “The New Work Project is an intimate, one-of-a-kind, design-led workspace for individually minded creators and innovators.”
