Modern lives and technology has drastically altered our work-life dynamic. Now we take our work with us pretty much everywhere and while it has its downside, there are plenty of benefits as well. For those entrepreneurial few who carry their work with them or ones who are not constrained by the cubicle and have a more flexible work arrangement, working from home can be both a blessing and a curse. It does become a bit harder when you have kids around you. Not only do you need to keep any eye on them and make sure they are occupied, but need to get work done in the few moments you can find between all the rush. Big and Tiny offers a smart solution to such working parents in Santa Monica, California.
This innovative new space combines work, play and a storefront with ease its 2100-sqaure-foot expanse provides members with a place where they can work with ease even as their kids stay busy. At the front of the setting one can find the store with geometric shelves and various cubes and modular units that make it a flexible space. The middle section is the play area for kids while a quiet and smart co-working area is nestled in the last part. The idea of Zooco Estudio here is to ensure that parents have the perfect place where they can combine care and career without logistic hassles. [Photography: Aaron & Jon Photographers]
