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.
Julianne Becker has a long history of leading communications based projects. Whether directing and producing films or running large scale events, her enthusiasm for sharing knowledge and innovative ideas is infectious. She also connects the dots from various industries, and her network is spread from the cultural scene, to tech, politics, and the NGO/non-profit sector as well. The dots for this project lined up well.
