Attuned to the interplay between worker and office environment, Mara’s extensive experience in workplace design, brand building, and entrepreneurship has made her a key player in today’s coworking industry. A pioneer of the coworking movement, she began bringing shared workspace concepts to corporate environments early in a career that spans nearly three decades. Since then, businesses and developers have leveraged her experience to bring successful coworking concepts to their organizations through tailored, flexible partnerships with 25N Coworking and its suite of workspace products and solutions. As CEO of Workplace Studio—an independent, multidisciplinary interior design arm of 25N Coworking—Mara brings design innovations and brand experiences to enterprise clients and developers through interior design projects and consulting packages. Additionally, Workplace Studio offers flex space consulting for coworking startups, existing coworking companies, and developers looking to transition and enhance their portfolios to grow into new markets. Over 40 locations (including seven 25N Coworking locations) have been developed by Workplace Studio’s tailored packages which uniquely explore and execute brand, user experience, community culture, optimal workspace design, and operational excellence.
