GREEN ZONE COWORKING IN BUDAPEST
Imagine yourself working in an environment where you can be so relaxed, that it doesn't even feel like working in the classic way. You can just lay back on a sofa, a beanbag, or just sit on a comfy chair. A place where you could even have your free coffee taken to you whenever you wish. In Baobab this is all possible. We make the place you work in as convenient and friendly as it possibly can be. No crowd, no noise, just a little island of peace right next to the busy city centre and still in a beautiful green environment.
Whether you are a freelancer, startupper, business traveler, or just simply feel like you need a calm, inspiring place to work, Baobab Coworking Club is just what you need.
WHY ARE WE CALLED BAOBAB?
It all began approx. 35 years ago when the founder had his first sighting somewhere not far north of the Zambezi. He was on a safari driving up from Johannesburg with his girlfriend, silhouetted in the sunset, love at first sight.
But there’s more to this tree than just prehistoric beauty he soon found out as he progressed deeper into natural Africa.
The baobab is a prehistoric species which predates both mankind and the splitting of the continents over 200 million years ago. Native to the African Savannah where the climate is extremely dry and arid, it is a symbol of life and positivity in a landscape where little else can thrive. Over time, the Baobab has adapted to its environment. It is a succulent, which means that during the rainy season it absorbs and stores water in its vast trunk, enabling it to produce a nutrient-dense fruit in the dry season when all around is dry and arid. This is how it became known as "The Tree of Life".
Baobab trees grow in 32 African countries. They can live for up to 5,000 years, reach up to 30 metres high and up to an enormous 50 metres in circumference. Baobab trees can provide shelter, food and water for animals and humans, which is why many Savannah communities have made their homes near Baobab trees.
While many people know of the Baobab tree, not many people know that it has a fruit - and even less know that this fruit is one of the most nutrient-dense foods in the world.
In fact, every part of the baobab tree is valuable - the bark can be turned into rope and clothing, the seeds can be used to make cosmetic oils, the leaves are edible, the trunks can store water and the fruit is extraordinarily rich in nutrients and antioxidants.
Here, at our own Baobab, on the hills of Buda, we create the environment in which freelancers and small startuppers can thrive just as the Baobab tree does with its
Who is coworking for?
Coworking is when freelancers, designers, sole entrepreneurs, small business owners share a common place to work.
If you still haven’t mastered the art of balancing your laptop on tiny coffee tables; if you’re tired of being asked every 10 minutes if you would like to order another coffee by the waitress at your local coffee shop; or if you've just realised you just spent another full week at home without seeing the light of day – then you’re probably ready for a coworking space.
At Baobab, we embrace the concept and as such, we’re renting out desks in our gorgeous office just by Budapest Szent Gellért square in a house that’s actually one of Budapest's protected buildings designed by the famous Hungarian architect, Emil Vidor. We welcome people who don’t want their own office but still would like to have other nice people around – folks to bounce ideas off, go for lunch or maybe devise plans for the next big thing.
We also provide our beautiful meeting room for when our coworkers who want to host clients or organise group meetings. Oh, and there’s a garden area, too!
WHAT MAKES US GREEN
Our top priority is to make Baobab as sustainable as it possibly can be. We recycle and use eco - friendly cleaning supplies.
CLOSE TO NATURE
Although Baobab Coworking Club is basically located in the centre of the city, we are in a green environment on the lower slopes of the beautiful Gellért hill.
LOTS OF PLANTS
We believe plants are an essential part of an office space. Not only do they look attractive, they also reduce stress and increase productivity.
