The Office Project PH
In the search for finding a place where I can both work and study, I have searched for places in Ortigas, Makati and even in Quezon City but all those did not have what I was looking for. Little did I know that it was meant to be for me to meet Yen from Type Kita. She was the one responsible for this. She introduced me to her workplace which is The Office Project!
Located at my heart, rather at the heart of the Makati Central Business District (or Makati CBD for most) lies a place where you can work, study, and co-work with people. I used to jump from one café to another just to look for the perfect spot for me to spread my so-called clutter.
When it comes to working, people would always think of an office which strict dress code / cubicle / a desk complete with piles that would just consume you during the day. Stress can never be inevitable yet working in a place that will make you feel less stress will really help! A nice workplace or study place will help you be productive and inspired.
Getting to look at wonderful plants and artworks with natural lighting really helps ease the tension and the intellectual stress you might be feeling towards work. For a person like me, it’s important for me to have a place that really is conducive for working. Being on a path filled with logic and creativity, inspiration is tough to find. In a crowded place, one tends to observe the people around, think what are they thinking and trying to experience what are they experiencing instead of just focusing on doing what needs to be done on their part.
Featured above is their meeting room. There chairs which are ergonomically designed to support the posture and the arms of the users. The tables were intricately designed to suit the creative and formal vibe of the space. There are things you may utilize like the whiteboard which can be transferred from one place to another (which happens during a workshop or a smaller meeting). A projector may also be used alongside the screen and the mounted board. There are extension wires inside the table with ample slots to lessen the mess that the cords will be creating.
What I like most about this particular space is that the flooring has turf on it which makes me feel more comfortable working. Whenever my feet feel tired, I could just remove my footwear for a moment or two and just step on the floor and imagine that I’m in a grassland or a prarie just wandering around. The doors to the meeting area resemble to the doors of Barry Allen’s laboratory at the police station (referring to The Flash 2014) which makes my nerd side quite alive!
TOP is CLAYGO
In every place, there will always be proper etiquette that should be followed. Remember, you will be co-working with others and respecting their space is one of the most important! General rule there is it is CLAYGO which stands for “Clean As You Go”. I came across this term back in college and even if I graduated already, I still practice it and even do it even if we are eating outside. Or at least I make it to a point that the cleaners won’t have a hard time cleaning since they have to cover the whole place and it will still depend on the number of plates there.
With the restroom or comfort room for some, it is very very nice! I have not seen anything like in my whole life! I’ve been living on this world for 22 years now and no restroom has ever surpassed this (well according to my opinion, of course). What restroom has beautiful decorations? The photo does not show the entire restroom since it’s a teaser and you have to see it for yourself as well. It has a sink, mirror, hand dryer, toilet paper, toilet, trash bin, mop, bidet and the lovely decorations!
|Flat lay by The Sab Stuff|
From working to studying to having creative works, you can do it at The Office Project or to most, TOP. If you are into calligraphy and need a place to do a workshop, you can do it with them! If you are looking for a place to read or just be alone or just want to chill, you can at TOP!
You have seen Sab’s stuff and now, time to see mine:
|Mess at the meeting room|
As you have read, I really love their meeting room! It really makes me feel like I’m an executive that works and chills at the same time. My clutter is well spread and my stuff are pretty much occupying 1/3 of the first half of the table. From notes to books to calligraphy stuff, you can work on it at TOP! It’s the best place to be!
