Nasab is an exclusive co-working space located in Dubai, UAE. But to call it just that would be remiss.
A creation of Emirati businessman Mohammed Zaal, Nasab is devised to be the centerpiece of the creative community in Dubai.
Located in the KOA Canvas residential community, Nasab functions as a co-working space and social club for residents of the community as well as for outside members. Spanning over three floors, the building comprises everything a creative would ever want in a workspace, and then some more. Workspaces in Nasab include hot desks, private office suites as well as multiple meeting rooms. Designed as an open-air loft house structure, the space focuses on creative expression and wellness. The spaces are well lit, and feature contemporary artworks, furniture pieces and murals by artists across the world. Open bookshelves and plants add to this ambience, offering a peaceful respite to work in. The design draws inspiration from various cultures and art styles, while also maintaining its connection with the country. The design is unmistakably Middle Eastern, while being not so at the same time. And by drawing this parallel, Nasab inspires the creatives to come together to make something unique.
The facilities at Nasab consists of a lot more than workspaces, offering its members premier wellness and social amenities. Members get to make use of a photography studio, private event spaces, and three top-notch eateries. Two outdoor swimming pools, a spa, a tennis court, and spaces for practicing yoga and meditation are also available for members. With these facilities, Nasab is an exclusive wellness destination in itself. The brand’s ethos of offering a holistic experience hinges on the understanding that there is no work without wellness, making the space well suited to those with the same mentality. Which is why prospective members have to undergo a selection process where money and fame are disregarded. Instead the process pays more attention to the personality and the type of work of each member. Through these measures Nasab aims to create a community where members collaborate and inspire each other.
Understanding the varied nature of work, memberships at Nasab take many forms. Users get to choose from group and single memberships for a day or a month with access to work and wellness facilities. To access just the wellness facilities, a leisure membership is also offered. A nomad membership is the most innovative one on the list. The membership offers any 10 days of access in a month, and is open to non-residents of Dubai - making it particularly useful for frequent travellers.
Nasab is designed to be more than a co-working space. It is a space where members receive access to exclusive workspaces and wellness facilities, and a community that supports each other. It is an outlier among co-working brands, with its determination to provide a space that integrates work, play and a sense of community. Nasab is an oasis in the middle of uninspired workplaces, taking work from home to the next level.
