OPEN is more than just an office, it's a collaborative community of creatives and professionals coming together in an inspiring and diverse space where you can expand your mind, meet, network and collaborate. Whether you’re an individual or business, explore the new frontier of free and open thinking set in the Maboneng Precinct.

The way we work has changed. Workplaces need to change too.

Many of us are autonomous professionals: we operate as free agents, in networks or as part of small companies. The kind of work we do doesn’t fit into stifling cubicles, our home offices don’t have the social interaction we crave, and coffee shops are too noisy and not private enough.

We need a flexible office space where we can be at our most creative and productive.We need somewhere we can be comfortable, get our work done efficiently and be inspired to create. That place is OPEN.

OPEN stretches your mind to the possibilities of what your ‘office’ can become. Let your environment affect your creative thinking and productivity in the most unique and beneficial manner.

We build our philosophy on the following metaphors

A Coral Reef in the City

Coral reefs provide the fertile ground for an incredibly rich and diverse ecosystem. The reef is home to many colourful species, is bustling with activity, and is open, without any walls. We created OPEN to be a coral reef for ideas, where minds can meet and be inspired by the city. OPEN offers fertile ground for new ideas and for making these come to life.

A gym for work

Access, flexibility and sharing are replacing ownership. Like a gym, OPEN offers everything you need for you to use and enjoy without having to buy and maintain it. It offers you abundance and quality at a level that is not achievable on your own but very accessible when you share.

  • mark_open
  • Sharing and inspiring:
    Sharing creates more for everyone: more facilities, more flexibility, more ideas, more inspiration, more quality.
  • Comfort and flexibility:
    OPEN should be easy, simple, generous and adaptive to your needs.
  • Innovative:
    You deserve a state of the art environment and technology, from fast internet, through to acoustics, lighting and heating/cooling.
  • Transparency:
    There should be no surprises: no extra bills month end, clear packages and no hidden cost.
  • Aesthetical:
    Workspaces should be beautiful and make you feel good.

New developments:

Based on our experience in Maboneng, OPEN is preparing new spaces:

  • We are partnering with Wits/JCSE to create an ICT innovation Hub for Africa in Braamfontein (http://openwits.co.za/).
  • Together with City Properties, we are preparing the OPEN solutions space in Pretoria.

The space is full of creative, innovative start-ups and people who have vision. I instantly had an amazing office space and awesome ‘co-workers’. I’ve fallen in love with the faces I see every day and I’ve been able to collaborate with people and businesses that wouldn’t have crossed my path in my isolated office back in Parkhurst.

What a privilege it was to be one of the first companies to use OPEN at the Main Change for the Unilever Leadership conference.
The thrust of the conference was the magic of technology across all digital platforms. We are sure OPEN will continue to attract the businesses that wish to be recognised as trendsetters – and salute you for pioneering this project – and recognising the potential of placing the OPEN environment within the heart of South Africa’s major city.

The rooftop can be booked for lunches and afternoon drinks.

Envisioned as a health food restaurant, Living Room created a menu based on a south African palate. The menu includes fresh salads, mezze food, meat and vegetarian options. Drinks include fresh juices and smoothies.
