Flacon Franchise - Creative Infrastructure
About the brand «Flacon»
Ecosystem Flacon has been creating and developing creative infrastructure since 2009. We form spaces that become the cultural center of the city.
Our mission is to create and develop creative infrastructure:
- 500+ residents
- 200+ articles about us and our projects in media
- 1,000+ events
- 35 000 m3
- 2,000,000+ visitors
Over the past 5 years we have created 60 concepts of spaces and creative clusters. We know how to turn an idea into a real project and an abandoned industrial zone into the epicenter of events. We have written a book - a guide to creating a creative cluster «Demolition cannot be revitalized».
Our projects become the epicenter of cultural life of the city:
- FLAKON DESIGN ZAVOD is the most successful creative cluster with an area of 25,000 m2. Millions of visitors, tens of thousands of selfies by the trolleybus, thousands of events, hundreds of major festivals and concerts, and an endless number of people who adore creativity.
- BAKERY #9" - revitalization of the historical bakery with an area of 17 000 m2.
- BRUCE'S SHIP. We have brought the old ship back to life and based on it we have created a unique public space and community of residents designed to bring to life different in form but unified in direction ideas for creativity, leisure and business.
- VERNISSAGE is the fourth project besides Flacon and Bread Factory. The former warehouses are home to vintage clothing, tableware, and furniture stores, permanent weekend flea markets, garage sales, craft workshops, and cozy cafes.
- FLACON 1170 is a comfortable and beautiful place for all kinds of events: educational programs, corporate outings, sport events.
- GUMBINNEN Design residence in a historic building. Colivings with design rooms, coffee house, antiques and workshops.
- The creative community "VILLAGE" is a holiday village of a new type with original architecture, art objects on the territory, events and workshops for creative people, for life, leisure in nature, creativity and self-realization.
FLACON SPACE is a hybrid space for the development of individuals and startups in the creative industries and digital.
FLACON SPACE is a creative space with a flagship F-store that hosts many events, lectures, workshops, and meetings of creative people.
The "Flacon" franchise is the market's answer to today's demand from companies, a new format for creative, flexible space.
The owners of flexible workspaces use the space more efficiently - at a higher cost per square meter, more jobs are created than in a classic office with the same space.
Flacon Space is a product of the Flacon ecosystem, a new adaptive format for the revitalization of small and medium-sized workspaces.
Flacon Space is the first stage in the development of real estate as a creative cluster, a place of attraction for creative and professional communities.
Given the current rate of growth in the number of flexible workspaces, the unsaturated market, and the high demand, this format has great potential for development.
Flacon Space is a hybrid space that is all about a comfortable environment to achieve results, as well as an efficient, cost-effective and flexible business solution. We are confident that there is a future behind this kind of space.
In 2019, we created Flacon Space, a co-office, 13 flexible mini-offices designed for work, and a public space with a lounge area, meeting rooms, and skype rooms at no extra cost.
The public space is functional and easily convertible into an event space for up to 100 people.
The residents of Flacon Space are startups, developers, independent agencies and major communication players.
The value of Flacon Space cooffice is not only in its mobile lease terms, but also in the fact that our residents receive a large set of additional services and IT-solutions, community and event space.
- A place of power
- Flexible rentals
- IT system
- Resident PR
We opened Flacon Space during the pandemic, we managed to fill it and reach the break-even point in the planned time frame.
