If you are working individually or a startup/ small business looking for a location that’s flexible and supports innovation, here it is.

If you have already been to other coworking spaces, a surprise awaits you at Entrepreneur Haus. Know why? This space is off the league! The creators have actually applied a lot of intelligence and creativity in designing it. An old warehouse and huge shipping containers have been flawlessly remodelled into a place that stands on and inspires innovation. This reflects in the ever-buzzing energy of this warm and natural corporate setting. It’s got a casual work area, private offices, stand-up and sit-down desks, Media/ Meeting/ Boardrooms and even an outside garden area. And in case you need anything more from the place? The owner Daniel, who is also a mentor and business strategist, will be happy to help.
What makes Entrepreneur Haus stand out?
This coworking space is built upon the science of ‘ergonomics’, which studies the relation between work-efficiency and work-environment. The converted warehouse space still retains its hard industrial feel though softened by hues of natural light and greenery. The bicycles adorning the wall-fitted bike racks with an in-parked Audi lend it a sporty touch. The spaciousness motivates bigger and better thinking, while the culture is that of mutual growth. This place is equipped with all the right tools you need to take your brand forward. But that’s not it! Come let’s dig further into the uniqueness of this space.
Creative Office Spaces
The lockable offices at Entrepreneur Haus have actually repurposed shipping containers. The spaciousness is left uncompromised with sliding glass doors and purpose-built desks. Custom made furniture is available for the timber floored Office Spaces to suit its inhabitants. And though the entire premises is fully air-conditioned, each office is equipped with individual AC units for added ventilation freedom. Plus, there’s a customisable spotlighting option for the office occupants.
A Spacious Shared Area
Entrepreneur Haus offers a silicon valley styled, open, comfortable and trendy working space. It has a casual shared area suitable for those who need to use the facility on an irregular basis. It is adorned with high stools, couch area, USB charging stations et cetera. So, whether you are an artist in need of a wide table to create a piece of art while standing or a lousy soul who needs a comfy couch to work, you will get it all here.
The Earth Elements
The place is fitted with energy-saving LED lights, plus skylights and rear windows to bring in plenty of natural light. Saving you from the unnecessary eye strains and keeping in touch with nature’s clock. The roof is ceramic coated to retain and reflect heat in the interiors and keeps the place nice and warm, naturally. Moreover, the interiors are adorned with live plants to retain the freshness of both – the mind and body of its inhabitants.
The furniture at Entrepreneur Haus is not the usual off the shelf one like in other coworking spaces. It is purpose built from high-quality materials to ensure that form-meets-function. The creators have laid focus on using wooden features, which surely pleases the eye. Apart from the stand-up and sit-down desks, the casual seating area has high stools for good posture and better work focus. The entire furniture is mobile, in case the setting needs a resetting.
The Mezzanine Deck
Another offbeat architectural feature of this place is the Mezzanine Deck workspace. FYI, Mezzanine decks are intermediate floors, just like a balcony in a theatre. These Decks give an elegant bird’s eye view of the entire premises. They are furnished with lower ergonomic office chairs and purpose-built desks, with separate areas for permanent office spaces. Thus, with the combination of high and low seating areas, they have smartly added more space and flexibility at the venue.
To Relax and Refresh
The Entrepreneur Haus space is designed to be a fun and relaxing workplace. It has a fully accessorized kitchen which is beautifully crafted, yea right, in a repurposed shipping container. The Kitchenette and dining area is specifically designed to help you relax and keep in touch with the mind-body-soul balance. You may also choose to relax/work in their open zen garden area.
