Today’s story will bring you to Las Palmas, the main city of Gran Canaria, a Spanish island located off northwestern Africa. What’s there? A great multipurpose space that has integrated coworking within its concept: Talleres Palermo.
Multipurpose Spaces - Remote and Rural Spaces - Sustainability
Coworking can be approached in many ways. For some, it is at the core of their concept, while for others, it is just one of many components. However, what happens when you combine coworking with other lines of business? How do you integrate it with your overall strategy? Let’s take a trip to Gran Canaria, a Spanish island in the middle of the ocean, where we'll find a multipurpose space called Talleres Palermo. What makes this space unique is that its founders have made it their mission to revive an old building sustainably, and as part of the repurposing process, they included coworking. Angel, Rafa, and Florencia have found a beautiful way to preserve, educate, support, connect, and positively impact their local community by creating this gem of a space that has become a favorite spot for remote workers to return to.
