NOVA – The inspiration and process
NOVA, Work & Co’s Mobile Office Pod, was designed and created in 2017 and officially launched in February 2018. The mastermind behind the new age office space is Julien Verspieren, the founder of Cape Town’s most desired co-working space, Work & Co.
The building process spanned over 6 months and was a combination of trial and error (as Julien was very clear on his vision) until finally, NOVA was a fully functioning receptive space equipped with all the office essentials & more. Understanding what a client needs for a productive work environment, NOVA offers Wifi, plug points, a Smart TV, Apple TV, running water, bathroom facilities, a fridge and is completely self-sustainable and off the grid.
NOVA was designed and developed from a flatbed trailer measuring to 2.5m wide and 5.0m long. There are 4 solar panels and 8 batteries on board to ensure long lasting power to anyone using it.
There are 5 pre-determined locations for clients to choose from but Work & Co also encourages people to curate their own NOVA experience. Once the booking is confirmed, the NOVA chauffeur will collect you and your team and transport you to your exclusive office for the day. Extra services such as Breakfast or Lunch deliveries are offered too.
As Julien believes versatility, creativity and inspiration are key factors to business growth, an alternative space for conducting meetings was the simple idea behind creating NOVA. With the world choosing to live more progressive lifestyles, people are finding ways to fuse work and life and what better way to accomplish what you need to whilst being surrounded by the authentic beauty of South Africa.
