2018

05/10

Time and place: Friday, 5 October, from 9am to 4 pm., Lauttasaari Manor (Otavantie 10, Helsinki, obstacle-free entrance via Kauppaneuvoksentie)

The Kone Foundation provides grant holders 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, some desk spaces, and a few beanbags are available. For lunch you can visit the Café Puhuri, where there is a special offer for workers. The Manor will provide tea and coffee during the breaks.

There are places for the first 30 who sign up. Sign up below for the moffice on Friday 5.10. by Tuesday 2.10 at the latest.

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!

Unfortunately, the Moffice Friday on 5 October, is fully booked. You are warmly welcome to join us for the next moffices on Friday, 2 November and Friday, 7 December – sign up now to secure your place.
