P Subramanyam and team ventured into the workspace business with Autonetic, when co-working spaces wasn’t a familiar phrase among companies. Back in 2009, the city had only premium-serviced offices and business centres that start-ups couldn’t afford despite a gamut of choices. Being cost-effective wasn’t Autonetic’s only aim, they wanted an environment that could give birth to new ideas. The founder’s stints in multiple IT companies across India and the US came to use here and Autonetic is proof that interiors that reflect simplicity needn’t always mean lack of appeal.
Located in a sleepy lane across multiple storeys at Hyndava Techno Park, Autonetic’s space is insulated from the rushy air that envelopes the IT corridors. The space bears mostly neutral colours, has comfy walking space even as it’s dominated by a wave of ergonomic chairs (helps those who work for long hours). They initially visualised the space as a data centre that provides good framework for their clients, what enhanced their scope is the decision to also turn it a hosting space with conference room and cabin facilities.
