THE STORY OF OFFICE X
Remote working from home is wonderful at its best, but sometimes that more important life can be more difficult to fit in with a day’s meeting or an important work call. Sometimes you want to leave your home office for no other reason than to work elsewhere. These thoughts gave rise to the idea for Office X premises as well.
Office X began to develop into a business from Janne Ukkonen’s idea in 2020. He noticed that working models and the need for business premises were changing. The world of work is changing towards hybrid working and the need for flexible shared spaces is increasing. Janne set out to take the idea of Office X forward and gathered the team around him. Now, in addition to her, Anna-Sofia Jarva and Pekka Martinmäki are also involved in Office X.
At Office X, we want to bring flexible workplace solutions closer to people. The journey of co-working is about to begin and we want to develop functional co-working entities together with customers.
The first office opened in June 2021 in Flamingo in Vantaa and the second in January 2022 in Olari in Espoo. Over the course of 1.5 years, we learned a lot about the future office space needs of companies and realized that the business model needs to change. Grateful for this learning journey, we will close the offices in Vantaa and Espoo during the fall of 2022 and start building new offices. In the future, the purpose is to realize spaces that offer both a private office and a co-working space flexibly side by side. The Jyväskylä location is the first trial of this type of solution.
Where are we now and where are we headed
We want to develop office X co-working spaces together with our customers. Our first locations are in Olari, Espoo and Flamingo, Vantaa. Our next locations is already in the works to Keilaniemi, Espoo.
We have an open mind about developing Office X. If you have a location where you would like to see us operate or other kinds of cooperation proposals, we will be happy to hear about them. We are always happy to discuss co-working and it’s possibilities so contact us and les meet
HOW SAFETY IS ENSURED IN THE FACILITIES
Our facilities are cleaned several times a week to maintain general cleanliness at all times as good. The furniture at the Jyväskylä location is antimicrobial, meaning that bacteria do not live on their surface.
If you wish, you can check on the website before entering the space how many people are in the space. You can find the thermal camera at the bottom of the front page.
The premises have surveillance cameras, which means that the premises are constantly monitored. However, we are not responsible for personal items left in the premises.
WHAT DO THE FACILITIES INCLUDE?
The facilities have high-quality furniture provided by Isku. There are more than 30 workstations in total for various purposes: meeting rooms, Framery One pods, sound-insulating Box Lounger chairs and other efficient solutions for remote work.
Office X is close to people and easily accessible. The first Office X location is at the Flamingo Entertainment Centre along Ring III in Vantaa.
Tasetie 8 A, 01510 Vantaa (2nd floor)
