COCONAT – community and concentrated work in nature
Quiet and solitude – Yes. Total Isolation – No.
Most human beings, about 90% of them, need a balance of solitude and people in order to be truly productive. And while you may need complete quiet while working on a particular 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.
Certain elements, such as our ‘family style’ lunches and dinners will give you a chance to talk to others who are right there with you, getting away from it all, but working.
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 within the central space, the small bungalows in the forest, in your own shady spot in the garden, the bathtub swing, and one day in the tree houses, the cave, or Founder’s Garage.
If you live in the city, you no doubt crave those moments of quiet stillness surrounded by green, where a swim is just a few steps down that dirt path.
We are surrounded by nature at Coconat. The national park is down the road, the Havel River as well, canoes at your disposal. Swimming lake? Check – just 5 minutes away. There is so much to explore.
The founding of Coconat in Klein Glien is led by our team of six co-founders, along with our newly formed architects collective, a tip top team of community managers, and with the continued support of our families, friends, and our ever growing community in Berlin and Brandenburg.
Coconat Klein Glien is building on the foundations laid by the original Coconat Cofounders, Christian Soeder, Janosch Dietrich, Julianne Becker, and Michael Kloos.
After Daniel Bertzen saw the former restaurant of the estate for the first time, he immediately convinced himself to become part of the team. In addition to his work as a business psychologist, he has been successful as a restaurant operator in Berlin for over 10 years. He was the founder and managing director of the Rodeo Club in Mitte, Fleischerei in Prenzlauer Berg, as well as the Ressort Berlin right behind the Hamburger Bahnhof museum. At the moment he runs the café Neuer Hain. The way to a Coconat’s heart is through the belly of course!
