HUDSON Business Lounge and Workplace is an 11,000-square-foot cutting-edge business facility that provides a viable workspace solution to business owners working out of home offices, sales representatives on the go, business executives who need a change of scenery and professionals looking for an off-site meeting location. No matter the business reason, HUDSON supports its members’ individual business goals and supports networking and cross marketing opportunities amongst its client base. HUDSON called upon Schroeder Solutions to provide the unique workplace ideas, configurations and layouts necessary to create this innovative work environment.
From semi-private workstations and open desking applications to private offices, conferencing and collaborative spaces, Schroeder Solutions incorporated products from over 16 manufacturers to design the ultimate co-working environment. Products were used to create three levels of privacy, and in some cases products were custom designed to meet very specific needs. The materials and finishes selected for the space maintain the desired loft-style appeal through the use of simple, clean neutrals with pops of vibrant colors such as lime green, orange and blue.
HUDSON creates a unique blend between member co-working spaces and a public access hospitality space with its bar component. This area is inviting to members as well as passersby for coffee by day and cocktails by night, “the sort of place where you just want to hang out and talk.”
In addition to providing design and furniture solutions for HUDSON, Schroeder Solutions demonstrated its commitment to the client and this workspace concept by helping HUDSON find the right furniture financing options. As a start-up, this can be a difficult obstacle to overcome, but Schroeder Solutions spearheaded the process. Through the collaborative participation of Advantage Leasing and Bank Mutual, HUDSON was able to open the doors to its fully equipped, loft-style office space.
As Hudson continues to evolve and adapt to members needs, Schroeder Solutions continues to consult on workplace trends and innovative products, such as soundmasking, whiteboard paint, sit to stand options, etc. Later this year there are plans to add on to the third Floor with dedicated private offices and workstations for yet another level of privacy.
