The sixth Workland in Lithuania is officially open. For a night, Workland office space turned into a nightclub with a spectacular sustainable fashion show! Workland Burės opening brought together the most famous Lithuanian business representatives and opinion makers.

Flexible office spaces are gaining popularity 

Workland has been growing continuously. "This year, we grew by 40% compared to the last year, and our services have never been in such a high demand level as they are now. During these uncertain times, companies need flexible solutions and can't afford to compromise the well-being of employees. The working environment is as important as the work itself. So we can say that the growing demand is partly caused by uncertainty in the economy but definitely because people want to work in a comfortable, inspiring environment where they enjoy working. We are planning to open a new centre in Riga and Tallinn at the end of the year and also continue expanding with new centres next year," comments Indrek Haal, the founder and CEO of Workland. 

"One of our strategic goals is to create even more sustainable workplaces that inspire and support people and their working style. We're are focusing on energy-efficient solutions and building a strong supportive community across the Baltics." marks Haal.

Modern workspace boosts productivity 

The brand-new Workland Bures centre is versatile; you'll find bright and bold colours in the open areas. Huge windows provide natural light and panoramic views of Vilnius's old town. There are many meeting rooms and phone booths in the centre, a quiet coworking area for focused work and a large, cosy lounge for networking and chats by the coffee machine.  

"The working environment is crucial for employee's productivity. Therefore, when creating new centres, we consider both the functionality and uniqueness of the interior to make sure that it's enjoyable and comfortable to work there. We see a growing need for small spaces to make the calls undisturbed. Thus we have installed booths for phone and video calls, which isolate the sound perfectly. There are also stylish and cosy lounge spaces where you can relax and hold less formal meetings," says Laura Panovienė, head of Workland's fully serviced office centres in Lithuania. 

The centre name "Bures" means sails in English, which also translates into office design. The inspiration for creating interior design for Workland Bures came from the Vendée Globe's regatta of soloists worldwide, demonstrating human strength, unbreakable determination, and courage. "Workland brings together a community of just such individuals - strong and inspiring; we can say that our members also inspire us," shares L. Panovienė.

The opening of Workland Bures created the synergy of sustainability, art, fashion and business. 

The opening of Workland Burės brought together Lithuania's most prominent entrepreneurs and influencers. Among them were Workland members Dovilė Urbanaitė, Ieva Mackevičienė, Orijus Gasanovas, Simona Albavičiūtė - Bandita. The highlight of the evening was a sustainable fashion show organized by the founders of "Sustainable Fashion Week Vilnius" Serge Gandzumian and Indrė Jakaitytė, during which a collection of Lithuanian designer Marija Petraitytė, called “Distance from a point” and also Estonian designer’s Joanne-Heleene Sõrmus collection “Virbu Verme” were shown. 

Even though from first sight, art, fashion, business, and office space are different fields, they share similar values. "By combining different fields, drawing ideas and inspiring each other, great things can be created, which is why the Workland community has one of the biggest advantages," says L. Panovienė.

According to Dovilė Urbanaitė, a member of Workland, entrepreneur, TV presenter and opinion maker, the workspace is not only a room but also the people who surround us: "To achieve great results in your activities, you simply need to surround yourself with positive, inspiring, supportive people. It's amazing to do this right in your workplace, office or coworking space, which is what Workland provides."

Towards sustainable workplaces - one step at a time

Thinking and considering the environment on our every step is becoming a norm. And it doesn’t only apply to households or people’s personal daily choices but also companies and government actions. Having green labels and signs that prove that products have been created sustainably is not only an alternative but a “must be” approach in many industries already.
