Brussels-based HR company PeterLily and Manistal coworking share spacious office space on buzzing Avenue Louise. PeterLily is a socially engaged HR consulting team, while Manistal is a collaborative ecosystem where start-ups, small businesses and independents work, connect and grow.

When it came to designing my office, I needed someone that had the right energy to make it happen, someone that was passionate, and would pour their soul into their work. And that’s exactly what I found in Space Refinery.

Marjolaine, Managing Partner

The Challenge

When PeterLily found a space they liked, it had only one problem – it was too big for their small team. That’s how Marjolaine decided to create Manistal. The entire office got a new purpose by adding a coworking space. As a concept that would connect both companies, they chose “meraki”, a word derived from Greek to describe an approach to doing things with passion, with all the heart. PeterLily and Manistal envisioned creating a welcoming and creative space where people feel inspired and comfortable.

The Outcome

The entrance to the office is the center point dividing PeterLily and Manistal. This functional space includes a meeting room for events and a lounge area. The multi-functional cafeteria was designed as a space that brings people together. Here everyone feels at home and can connect with others in a relaxed and uplifting environment.

Natural light and plants ensure all rooms feel inviting and cozy, while a custom bench, a reclaimed handmade oak table and several stylish pendant lights provide simple yet unique details.
