The Assemblage, a provider of coworking and social spaces, will open its second location—and first coliving space—at 17 John St. in Manhattan’s Financial District in April. Along with five floors of coworking spaces, the John Street House will also include a 79-room hotel, expanding upon the brand’s first coworking-only locale in New York’s NoMad neighborhood.
The Assemblage was the subject of the “Sharing Economies: How Crowdfunding and Coworking are Driving Hospitality” session at BDNY 2017, and was featured in the Oct. 2015 edition of Boutique Design.
The company was founded by Rodrigo Niño, ceo of Prodigy Network, and was crowdfunded by individual backers around the world. Thus far, Prodigy Network said it has raised $165 million for three spaces. (The third is planned for Park Avenue in New York.)
The new John Street locale will feature a live moss installation covering its entryway ceiling and walls, highlighting the brand’s commitment to biophilia, which is carried throughout the entire building with displays designed by Plant the Future. Guestroom corridors also include hand-painted murals, each depicting a scene unique to each floor.
Guest rooms range from 227 sq.-ft. to 718 sq.-ft., are designed for long-term stays and feature in-room kitchen items and art by the Shipibo tribe of the Amazon. Additional signature amenities include a yoga studio, tea ceremony room, sound meditation and rooftop access.
The Assemblage’s John Street and NoMad House’s coworking membership categories include: Assembly, offering access to nightly talks and events; House, flexible desks within the communal work spaces; Resident Desk, individual work space; Resident Studio (John St. only), provides private space for one or two people; Resident Office, private space for up to four people. Resident Lounges (NoMad only), are a six-person private workspace and lounge. Each coworking floor also includes alternating conference room space and meditation or yoga rooms. Public spaces are bookable for private events.
