Co-working space the office of tomorrow

A 200-year-old piece of Chengal timber has made an epic journey – from an old factory in Klang to become a designer workstation at Co-labs Coworking on Level 4 of The Starling mall in Damansara Uptown, Petaling Jaya. The workstation has customised slots to place your tablets and mobile phones as well as specialised pods to store your belongings.

A few metres away, a “breakout area” awaits with comfortable seating pods. One can use them for a meeting with colleagues or for a brainstorming session. These are just one of several meeting areas in the premises. For longer sessions, you can book a meeting room.

As a co-working space, your colleagues aren’t the only ones working there. The events hall, pantries, printing stations, nap pods, nursing room and other facilities are also shared with employees from other companies.

Welcome to Co-labs The Starling, a 20,000 sq ft co-sharing workspace at the heart of Petaling Jaya’s business centre. Co-labs also features a photo studio for product photography sessions, coffee stations, telephone booths for private phone calls, a recreation room equipped with Sony Playstation 4 and Nintendo Wii, lockers to store your belongings, a shower area along with mentorship and internship programmes.

It is almost a perfect office! The ambience and environment will certainly appeal to those who don’t require a traditional office to conduct their daily business needs.
