Karostech has been consulting a team of community builders in Lahti concerning their plans to renovate an old Mallasjuoma brewery building to a modern Center of Creative Communities – Malski. This still ongoing work has involved various tasks by Karostech, such as conceptual planning, business plan evaluations, planning and supporting the pilot operations especially in the coworking space operations and facilitation of the community building.
The pilot space c/o Malski opened in a location very close to the brewery building in the middle of the city on late January 2013. The first big event was organized by Karostech and it was the participation in JELLYWEEK 2013 activities together with 250 other coworking communities from all over the world. The Google Hangout video clip from a special session “Designing a platform for creative industries”can be found here, the issue was discussed between local experts and online contributors Anni Roolf (Germany), Leila Pais de Miranda (Brazil) and Sebastian Olma (Netherlands).
The Malski Center will open in the beginning of 2015 and Karostech is applying the 3GSP principles into the final design and implementation of the center.
Karostech will move the headquarters to c/o Malski by the beginning of March.
