The Man Behind Urban Offices Belgrade
Milan, could you tell us a bit more about your background and what inspired you to start Urban Offices in Belgrade?
Milan: Of course! I’ve always had a passion for small businesses and believed in their potential to shape the future. Having personally experienced the challenges of renting office space in Belgrade, with long-term contracts, hefty deposits, and soaring rents, I knew there had to be a better way. This led me to envision Urban Offices as a solution to make premium office spaces accessible to small businesses without the hassle and costs associated with traditional office rentals.
Why did you choose Knez Mihailova for the location of Urban Offices, and what was your vision?
Milan: Knez Mihailova is a symbol of both old Belgrade charm and modernity. I wanted Urban Offices to embody this blend of tradition and innovation. Our space features a modern design that is not only visually appealing but also prioritizes functionality and comfort. We provide high-quality ergonomic furniture, ample natural light, specially designed indoor lighting for computer work, fully equipped meeting rooms, a lounge, a kitchen, and much more. I aimed to eliminate hidden costs and complexities associated with traditional office rentals, making it easier for small businesses to focus on growth.
You mentioned that all-inclusive pricing is a key feature of Urban Offices. Can you elaborate on what’s included in this pricing and why you decided to adopt this approach?
Milan: Urban Offices believes in transparency and simplicity. When you rent an office with us, everything you need for your business to run smoothly is included in one price. This encompasses utilities, internet, cleaning, security, fully equipped meeting rooms, a lounge, a kitchen, and more. I wanted to eliminate the hidden costs and complexities of traditional office rentals, making it easier for small businesses to focus on growth rather than managing various expenses.
The interior design of Urban Offices has received a lot of praise. Can you share your thoughts on the aesthetic choices and how they impact your clients?
Milan: We often receive calls from influencers and production companies wanting to shoot in our space. I’m delighted that people appreciate the interior design of Urban Offices. To me, it’s essential that our clients feel inspired and motivated in their workspace. The interior has a visually appealing look while maintaining a professional atmosphere. I believe that a visually pleasing and comfortable environment can significantly boost motivation and productivity, and the positive feedback we receive validates this belief.
Art plays a significant role in Urban Offices. Can you tell us more about the art pieces you’ve chosen to incorporate and how you believe they contribute to the workspace?
Milan: Art has always been a passion of mine, instilled in me by my parents. I began collecting art at a young age and decided to share this love by featuring pieces from my family collection in each office at Urban Offices. I believe that art has the power to inspire, provoke thought, and elevate the atmosphere. Good art can enhance the creativity and energy of our clients, ultimately contributing to their success.
Looking ahead, how do you envision the future of serviced offices in Belgrade, and what are your hopes for the future of Urban Offices?
Milan: I see a bright future for serviced offices in Belgrade. Small businesses and entrepreneurs are increasingly recognizing the value of flexible, all-inclusive office spaces. I hope that Urban Office Knez Mihailova is just the beginning of our journey. My vision is to expand Urban Offices across Belgrade, providing more entrepreneurs and businesses with the resources and environment they need to thrive. The success of our clients is our success, and we’re excited about the possibilities that lie ahead.
