Yves Behar-Designed Boutique Coworking Space Opens In San Francisco
The CANOPY office offers remote workers and freelancers a wealth of concierge-style amenities, a spacious interior layout and ergonomic furniture
Swiss designer Yves Behar launched a coworking space in San Francisco, combining ergonomic office furnishings with his signature focus on sleek modernity. The CANOPY space is located on Fillmore Street in the Pacific Heights neighborhood, known for its affluent residential status. Advertised as a “boutique working environment,” CANOPY aims to provide concierge service to the area’s sophisticated professionals. The office space is a joint collaboration between Yves Behar and fellow designer Amir Mortazavi, whose property development company M-PROJECTS built the facility.
CANOPY was furnished with designs by Yves Behar’s industrial design firm Fuseproject. The open-aired office offers workers a variety of concierge style amenities, such as private phone booths, a full-sized kitchen, the coffee of SF-based roaster Sightglass and Herman Miller Ergonomic Furniture. The space itself is uncluttered and capacious, with an calming palette of blues and grays.
With more companies allowing employees to choose how and where to work, coworking spaces allow remote workers, freelancers and entrepreneurs to work in environments with like-minded individuals, though they might not be from the same company or field of work. The CANOPY coworking space furthers this trend by cultivating an atmosphere that pushes for synergy, allowing the 9-5 job more comfort and inspiration. A CANOPY monthly membership costs $650 for a spot at the communal table and $1,100 for a personal desk, while a private office space can be rented for a monthly fee ranging from $2,850 and $5,500.
