Time and place: Friday, 6 March, from 9 a.m. to 4.30 p.m., Lauttasaari Manor (Otavantie 10, Helsinki, obstacle-free entrance via Kauppaneuvoksentie)
Kone Foundation provides its grantees with a communal workspace in the Lauttasaari Manor, usually on the first Friday of each month.
The room on the lower floor of the manor functions as a shared working space, in which each person does their own work. In terms of structure, the room is open-plan or multi-facility and is best suited to quiet work.
Work is done quietly for 45 minutes at a time, followed by a shared 15-minute break. Each work phase begins at a quarter past the hour and breaks are held on the hour, at which time participants can come and go. If you wish, you can therefore come for only part of the day – part way through the day until a break held on the hour, after which work will resume at a quarter past the hour.
Wifi and desk space is available, and coffee and tea is served during the breaks. In addition, we will treat the Moffice participants to lunch at CAFÉ PUHURI at 12 p.m.
What is a Moffice?
Shared workspaces – hoffices, coffices and moffices – have become more common. Offices can be moved into someone’s home (hoffice), a café (coffice) or any other changeable place (moffice, in Lauttasaari, of course, manor + office). A moffice is a shared workspace, where the people working may not be previously acquainted or engaged in a joint project. The work is punctuated by breaks during which you can share your thoughts, problems and insights.
All grant recipients are warmly welcome to work in this common space – alone but together!
Those participants who are coming outside of Helsinki can inquire about reimbursement of travel expenses.
