A Tour of The Hive’s Coworking Space in Diegem
The Hive is a unique restaurant concept in Diegem, Belgium that functions as a co-working space throughout the day. The interior of the venue was designed by interior design firm Creneau International.
“In the centre of business park Pegasus, we gave work and lunch bar ‘The Hive’ a face. A beehive might be the perfect metaphor for all that city life entails. Teamwork, hierarchies, winding roads and organised chaos. A structure that never sleeps, full of possibilities and interactions. We incorporated this idea into the design of the space, both in a literal and a more figurative way. In the complete design you’ll find playful street elements, from traffic signs to road markings. The space is divided into corners where some great food can be enjoyed and some constructive meetings can be held. A centre where you can find good conversation as well as some privacy. An area that serves as an extension of the free flow restaurant in the afternoon, functions as a co-working space throughout the day. Teams, colleagues or lone wolfs that grew tired of the dull office floors can escape to work, meet or relax here. Working together is stimulated as it’s so much more enjoyable in the Hive. Feel like some palm trees might lift you up or in need of some contemplation in blue? Each seating compartment has its own character to make your working day more interesting. Other seating options include a lounge in the back and a communal working table in front. The Hive is equipped with a great bar to cater to all co-workers’ needs. The Daily Kiosk is open all day and especially popular for its breakfast and coffee. Still, many busy bees come grab a quick bite in the afternoon as well,” says Creneau International
