New NYC Coworking Space Fuses Brazilian Modern With Post-Industrial Charm

Coworking spaces are all the rage these days. From Los Angeles to London, new ones seem to sprout up at every turn, and the drumbeat of this trend shows no signs of quieting. From ubiquitous WeWork outposts to Neuehouse's recent reinvention of a historic Hollywood space (formerly the headquarters of broadcasting powerhouse CBS) to a coworking hub in the English capital with Tom Dixon-designed accents, there seems to be no shortage of these centers of 21st-century professional life.

A new "collaborative workspace," this time in New York City, adds another one to the growing list of similar properties across the globe. Dubbed Spring Place, and billing itself as a "workspace and membership club connecting work, leisure, and culture—" Oxford comma ours—"for a select community of global influencers," the new 140,000-square-foot space has taken up residence in Manhattan's downtown TriBeCa neighborhood.

Early photos show interiors that marry the raw, post-industrial ruggedness of the space—all exposed concrete walls and columns, and snaking, visible HVAC ducts—with Brazilian modernist leather lounge chairs. The aesthetic carries through a number of spaces, including a conference room and bar and restaurant, as well as a private cinema, which features plush red-velvet seating and a faceted ceiling.

Should you tire of the resplendence indoors, an 11,000-square-foot rooftop terrace is also on offer. It's, no doubt, equally resplendent.

Spring Place—like other exclusive, members-only clubs like Neuehouse, Soho House, and more—will be branching out beyond the confines of the Big Apple, and has plans to roll out locations in cities as far and wide as Madrid, Paris, São Paulo, and Tokyo.
