Take us for a test drive!
Every Thursday morning Design Annex welcomes designers and professionals, solopreneurs, freelancers and consultants of every stripe to join us for a test drive of the Design Annex.
Bring your laptop to get some work done in our shared space. The group often heads out for lunch together somewhere around midday.
The event is free but we ask you to please register at least 24 hours ahead. Space is limited.
Design Annex is on the Union Square Plaza, upstairs from Precinct. There are a metered lot immediately beside the building and free resident-only parking on surrounding streets. Less than 1½ miles from Harvard, Kendall, Porter, Central and Sullivan Squares, Design Annex is served by buslines 85, 86, 87, 88, 91 & the CT-2.
Design Annex provides small firms and solo practitioners in the design industry the resources to grow their businesses. An initiative of Union Square Main Streets, Design Annex meets the specific needs of the design industry for space, equipment and community. The goal of the effort is to build a robust network of collaborative, thriving, design-related businesses centered in Union Square, Somerville.
The 1400 square foot facility includes a co-working space, conference room, lounge with a resource library, kitchenette, and ventilated studio for model and presentation board building. The entire space has high-speed, secure wireless internet. Programming through the Design Annex increases the capacity of the local design industry by fostering skill/knowledge development and creating networking and marketing opportunities.
