COCONAT – community and concentrated work in nature
Quiet and solitude – Yes. Total Isolation – No.
Most human beings need a balance of solitude and people to be truly productive. While you may need total silence while working on a project, or a room with a view for your team pow-wow, you also need to unwind and speak to other people to keep those creative juices flowing.
Our family style lunches and dinners will give you a chance to talk to other creative and inspiring individuals.
Get away from your mundane routines, the urban excesses, the traffic, the noise, the cubicle, the home office.
Work alone or as a small group in our shared space, silent coworking area, library, two meeting rooms, by the lake or under a shady tree.
If you live in the city, you no doubt crave those moments of quiet stillness surrounded by green, where a water view is just a few steps down that dirt path.
We are surrounded by nature at Coconat. There are walking paths through forests and fields. The renowned Kunstwanderweg Höher Fläming passes through our property. Brandenburg’s highest point, Hagelberg, is just behind the property. And our small lake is a beautiful spot to sit and reflect.
Coconat is an international community made up of countless helping hands that fill the project with life. Coconat would not be the dreamlike place it is because of our many volunteers, our employees and team, fellowship holders, and cooperation partners – we are infinitely grateful. The core team currently consists of Iris Wolfer, Philipp Hentschel, Julianne Becker and Janosch Dietrich, the founders of Coconat in Klein Glien.
Our project has a long history – beginning in 2012, the original founding team, Julianne Becker, Janosch Dietrich, Michael Kloos, and Christian Söder, developed the idea to use digitisation to create an idyllic place of work in the green. After two successful test runs, Coconat opened permanently in May 2017 in the Klein Glien estate.
