NADAS is a creative house dedicated to urban biodiversity, supporting projects that value the diversity of urban life and relationships between people and their environments. Among other activities, NADAS hosts: creative workshops and classes, meetings and gatherings, gardening and planting, product sales, rentals, private art studios, and personal office work (coworking). By providing space for such ideas to be tested, realized, and shared, NADAS aims to build a community around living slowly, mindfully and empathetically.
NADAS was founded in April 2018 by Ahu Kopan and Jessica Sim, with the support of a wider team and community. The project occupies a 3-storey house with a garden, built in the 1930’s. Rooms are available to coworkers - i.e. those looking for a comfortable environment to concentrate on their personal office work - as well as for rent for private artist studios, movement classes, yoga, massage, workshops, and meet-ups. In addition, NADAS hosts classes and workshops such as regular Tuesday art class with resident artist Gabrielle Reeves and daily yoga classes. NADAS is also home to greensquaremeter, a platform dedicated to plant-care, including a plant-shop, plant-care consultancy, plant hotel, and Friday evening plant talks.
NADAS is currently open to additional project proposals for collaboration.
