Chinese co-working space operator Ucommune, formerly known as UrWork, just announced the acquisition of Daga Architects, a Beijing-based interior design firm, to bring state-of-art designs to its co-working space networks, our sister site TechNode Chinese is reporting.

Co-founded by four experienced designers including Shen Jianghai, formerly at the renowned Zaha Hadid Architects, Daga Architects has been a long-term partner of Ucommune and teamed up with the firm for the design of its spaces in Hangzhou, Singapore, Kunming, and 5L Meet in Beijing, part of another space operator project co-founded by Ucommune founder Mao Daqing.

As an early entrant, Ucommnue gradually rose to dominance in China’s co-working space market in line with a swift market consolidation of the sector. It has acquired a series of smaller but strategic competitors, such as Wedo, Woo Space, New Space, Workingdom. Thanks to these partnerships, the company claims to operate 60 offices in Beijing, over 20 in Shanghai and a significant presence in China’s Great Bay Area.
