“We planned our work around the communal space which offers a buzzing environment of professionals from all walks of life. Fortunately, standard coworking spaces offer printers, desks, and Wifi, which allowed us to plop ourselves in the many working areas spread across two vast floors of the Contemporary Arts Center.

“Industrial features, including exposed pinewood beams, raw brick walls and huge arched windows, give the coworking space its character. The Shop is the only coworking space in a gallery in New Orleans, so it’d be remiss if the hub wasn’t teeming with artworks. Walls are hung with paintings by Ellen Macomber and photography by Eric Nunez, while Californian duo CYRCLE (aka David Torres and David Leavitt) painted murals in the fourth floor common area.”
