A Creative Thinking Studio in the wilderness!
The stupid are always in a hurry; the smart choose their own tempo.
- Carl Honoré
Loovusait (Creativity Barn) was created for your team so that in a world that moves at such a crazy tempo there’d be at least one place where you can get away from it all for a couple of days and focus on solving the challenges you’re facing.
It’s a truly unique space: a former craftsman’s farm dating from the 19th century which is set well away from the hustle and bustle of city life but which provides an unparalleled working environment. It’s the ideal place for brainstorming with colleagues or clients, planning strategies or applying the final touches to an important project. A complete change of scenery!
Take your time, throw yourself into your work and new success stories are sure to follow.
The complex offers:
- two respectable old log structures with a studio, café and recreation area – all adapted to provide working space for teams of up to 25 people;
- an Internet connection and other resources you’ll need for effective brainstorming (with an experienced instructor to help you out, if needed);
- a terrace and other options for working outdoors, plus peace and quiet and an inspiring natural environment (including the deep, dark waters of a bog lake); and of course great food and great coffee.
We haven’t tried to make the farm perfect – we like the old log walls and rough-around-the-edges finish the way they are. That’s the beauty of them. That’s what makes them real. Indoors, our preference is for Estonian design and the work of master craftsmen. We also value repurposing and recycling: we like genuine, authentic, interesting items. The peace and quiet is genuine here, too, as are the surrounding nature and the birdsong accompanying you. All of which really helps focus on your work. It’s just a great place to be. All of a sudden you’ll find yourself thinking that in fact there’s nowhere you need to be in a hurry; you and your team can simply focus on whatever it is you need to do. Throw yourself into it and you’ll find that success stories follow.
What other opportunities does the complex offer?
We provide accommodation in two wooden buildings (with space for 16 and 4 people, respectively) and three log cabins (with space for 4 people each). If your team are interested, we can stoke up the UNESCO World Heritage-listed smoke sauna or arrange to go bog-shoeing.
If you need to, you can ask us to step in and lend a hand as well – for the past 16 years we’ve been helping teams define situations (as well as products and services) that need solutions and come up with, develop, analyse and ‘sell’ new ideas.
Where to find us?
To really focus and look at things from a different angle, you need a complete change of scenery. Our studio is tucked away in the forests of southern Estonia: around 2 hours and 45 minutes from Tallinn and Riga, or just 45 minutes from Tartu. We’re happy to provide transfers and help you organise your whole visit.
The world is getting louder. But silence is still accessible!
