Merkspace Begin - review
Merkspace was founded about a year and a half ago by Sapir Shpigel, a young entrepreneur. The company currently has 4 branches in Israel (two are in the center of Tel Aviv - Karlibach 10 branch, Menachem Begin 65 branch, and two branches at Atidim Deborah Hanevia 121). This week, the fourth branch in Kiryat Atidim, called Olympia Zone, was opened and adapted to sports entrepreneurs. In July, the first international branch will be opened in Amsterdam.

Design and atmosphere
There seems to be a guiding principle in the design of the Merkspace branches and it certainly does the work, the place is decorated in a very European style, homey, prestigious but urban. There are lots of furniture and accessories imported from abroad that create a homely but very luxurious atmosphere suitable for hosting investors, delegations and customers.
The complex creates a very pleasant, quiet and productive atmosphere. Anyone who wants to work quietly and focus on his work can do it without any disturbance, and at the same time it seems that there is always someone to talk to in case you want a break. The CEOs of the companies in Merkspace feel the difference between Merkspace and the competitors and feel comfortable moving their staff and employees to Merkspace because of the focus on the company's activity and development.
The complex is very bright and cozy, equipped with comfortable chairs and indulgent seating areas and even foosball in case you want to break the routine a bit
