To provide our members with the right tools and resources for creative exploration, we’ve built the Creators Lab in Factory Berlin Görlitzer Park. Designed as a multi-purpose environment to be used by our community and extended network, the Creators Lab hosts an artist residency, music studio, tech testing center, meditation room, kitchen and sports area. It’s a comfortable environment for multiple disciplines to meet and flourish together, to make collaboration easy and cutting-edge ideas more accessible.
Opening hours: 8 am - 9 pm on weekdays.
The large open area includes standing tables, sitting tables, folding tables, hanging tables and lounge areas for all types of working or meeting. There’s always light music and conversations around, so don’t be shy about meeting here or making some noise (or bringing your noise-cancelling headphones).
This room is perfect for getting some silence and meditating alone or in a group. If you’re interested in using the room for a special meeting or workshop, please write to Caleb (email@example.com) to see if it can be arranged.
The community kitchen is like any other in the campuses with coffee, tea, sparkling water and more. This kitchen also includes stove tops so there is the potential to run cooking classes/events sometime in the future. We’re not quite ready yet, but if you have ideas, feel free to write already!
