Since its founding in 2005, Impact Hub has focused on providing coworking spaces that incubates entrepreneurs interested in social justice, tech innovation, and environmental sustainability.
Impact Hub’s newest outpost in Salt Lake City is located at the site of a former carriage factory and features an atrium-like area on the third floor called “the Alcove” meant for collaboration and team meetups.
While the place was picture perfect, the firm realized the space’s wide open floor plan didn’t allow for much visual or audible privacy, so it enlisted the help of manufacturing company 3form to remedy the issue.
3form revamped the Alcove into a multi-functional coworking space through its ILTUO system, which is a space-shaping, customizable design solution. Now, the Alcove has a chat space, an office space, and a collaboration space.
“Impact Hub has such a rich approach to their spaces that we really resonated with,” said Christian Darby, 3form’s vice president of design and marketing. “We both prize an easily-discernible depth of thinking that goes into our respective missions, as well as flexibility in achieving our goals. Our cultures just matched, which made this project so enjoyable to work on.”
