A long-time dream and goal of our CEO, the clovio Studio, is now a reality! Located in the heart of the sunny Portuguese capital city of Lisbon, our base of operations had its grand opening in March 2022 after a short hiatus due to nationwide COVID-19 restrictions. Now running full steam, this friendly coworking space provides clovions with a nice alternative to the work-from-home routine, while also fulfilling all the demands for business meetings, accommodation for international travelers, or just a spot for a nice coffee break every now and then. Welcome to our HQ.
A Guided Tour of the clovio Studio
While we work by the concept of hot-desking, meaning that no clovion has their own desk, our Studio is equipped with multiple rooms that each serve different purposes. The Workspace is our main station, an open area where everyone gathers to work during the day. It features the best balcony in the city, by the way, an outdoor space where clovions can take a break and have a coffee, or even work on their laptops while getting some fresh air but remaining protected from the sun.
Our Meeting Room is where we do internal in-person and virtual meetings, often while standing up, and we also have a separate Recording Studio for our video voice-overs. When hunger kicks in, our Kitchen provides clovions all the appliances necessary to store, heat, or cook their meals. And because we like to keep our Workspace clean, there’s a Dining Room inside the Kitchen, where we like to sit and enjoy our meals.
Last but surely not least, the clovio Guest Suite. This is an exclusive accommodation facility for traveling clovions who need to stay with us for one or more nights. It’s equipped with a private bathroom, a comfortable bed and a small lounge area for relaxing. clovions staying in the Guest Suite have access to the Laundry facilities as well.
At the clovio Studio we’re also environmentally conscious. We use tap water with a purifier, we only print what’s strictly necessary, and we recycle all our trash.
Based in Lisbon, But Open to the World
With most of our clovions based in Lisbon or its vicinities, the location of the clovio Studio is one of its major benefits. You can find us at 8 Avenida Dom Rodrigo da Cunha, right at the edge of the Alvalade neighborhood. We chose this calmer residential area of the city in order to have the relaxing home-like feeling that differentiates our Studio from many other offices. It’s also close to the airport and public transport: we have two bus stops right on our doorstep, and the train and metro stations are just 1.5km away on Areeiro square. The airport is exactly the same distance away, but in the opposite direction.
Working-From-Home and Coffee-Shop Vibe
Even though we have an ‘office’ where we can work, the clovio spirit remains untouched. This means that we’re still a remote-first company with flexible hours. Because of that, we also don’t have a record sheet for the Studio. Everyone is free to come whenever they want or when their schedules allow it, and stay for as long as they like.
But having a physical place to work from is great. It’s a very welcome change to the constant work-from-home routine, helping us fight off loneliness and enjoy the benefits of working directly with our fellow clovions, such as communicating more easily with each other, or getting a fresh perspective when facing a creative block. In addition, in our Studio we can have face-to-face meetings with our partners, and international clovions have a place to stay when visiting Portugal, too. All of this, of course, without mentioning the strong social component, as we can chat about last night’s football match, the latest movies and series everyone’s been watching, or enjoy some nice chit-chat during our lunch break.
clovion or partner, everyone is welcome to our Studio, so come on by and pay us a visit! We have chocolate, coffee, and smiles on offer.
