Westerwelle Startup Haus
Our goal was to create an oasis in the heart of the city, providing a stimulating and nurturing environment for budding startups and entrepreneurs.
Westerwelle Startup Haus Arusha is a vibrant entrepreneurial hub located on the top floor of a seven-story building in Arusha.
Upon entering the Startup Haus, visitors are welcomed into a space that radiates creativity and innovation. The design concept revolves around the idea of a tranquil oasis, offering a respite from the bustling city below. Natural elements, soothing colors, and harmonious textures create a calming ambiance that fosters productivity and collaboration.
The open floor plan encourages interaction and exchange of ideas among the startups and entrepreneurs working within the space. Carefully curated workstations, versatile furniture arrangements, and dedicated meeting areas ensure that the layout is flexible, accommodating the diverse needs of the entrepreneurial community.
A harmonious blend of modern amenities and natural elements sets the tone for the interior design. Thoughtfully chosen plants and greenery are strategically placed throughout the Startup Haus, bringing nature indoors and infusing the space with a sense of vitality and tranquility. Natural materials, such as wood accents and sustainable fabrics, are used to create an eco-friendly and aesthetically pleasing environment.
To maximize natural light and showcase the stunning city views, large windows adorn the space, flooding it with an abundance of natural light. This infusion of sunlight not only enhances the overall atmosphere but also reduces the reliance on artificial lighting, promoting energy efficiency and sustainability.
The Westerwelle Startup Haus Arusha is not just a workspace; it is a community that thrives on collaboration, support, and growth. Common areas, such as lounge spaces, breakout zones, and communal kitchens, provide opportunities for entrepreneurs to connect, network, and unwind. The overall design encourages an inclusive and inspiring atmosphere, fostering a sense of belonging and shared purpose.
As interior designers, we aimed to create a space that embodies the spirit of innovation and nurtures the entrepreneurial spirit. The Westerwelle Startup Haus Arusha serves as a beacon for startups, providing a stimulating and harmonious environment where ideas can flourish, connections can be made, and dreams can become reality.
