Blueprint 2022 Highlights
2022 marked Blueprint’s 5th anniversary so we’ve selected five of our favourite moments and highlights to share with you.

Blueprint Community Events

After Hong Kong’s slow start to 2022, we prepared a warm welcome back for our Members and jumped back into curating fun-filled Community Events. Highlights included sweet indulgences on International Ice Cream Day, a Tea-riffic Cocktail Party for Mid-Autumn, numerous Blueprint Board Games sessions (Sky 9 & Rummikub), an Oktoberfest-themed Beerbash with Beer Pong, 2022 World Cup Sweepstake as well as a double celebration of Christmas and Blueprint’s 5th Anniversary. Looking back, our Members were certainly well fed and watered, and kept entertained and in high spirits whilst getting stuck into plenty of networking opportunities amongst the Blueprint Community.

Blueprint Gives Back

Taking pride of place in our community outreach programmes in 2022 was the unveiling of PINKprint – a brand takeover to celebrate PRIDE on Pink Friday (18th November). At Blueprint, we are incredibly proud of our Community and the great number of individuals whose diverse backgrounds and beings make Blueprint an amazingly vibrant and inclusive place to be.

Doubling down on PRIDE, we also hosted a PRIDE Cocktail Mixology Masterclass in PRIDE Month (June) to support LGBTQ+ and diversity. We would also like to give a special shout out to our kind-hearted Members who participated in “Boxful of Love” to send Christmas gifts to grassroots children.

Blueprint Gets Active

In 2022, Blueprint doubled down on support for our Members’ physical and mental wellbeing by recruiting Blueprint Members for not one, but two, wellness challenges - the Taikoo Place 8-Hour Charity Spin and Indoor Golf Tournament. Both challenges were great examples of community building where Members strived together towards a shared goal in the name of charity, collaboration and good health. Positivity was literally bouncing off all the walls!

Blueprint Member Spotlight

Our charismatic female founders at Blueprint proved that women can undoubtedly be the cornerstone of a successful business - the sky is their limit when it comes to realising their dreams. Coinciding with International Women’s Day 2022, Blueprint took the opportunity to give tribute to two fabulous female founders in our Community as they shared their valuable lessons and transformations along their entrepreneurial and life journeys. Check back to earlier Happenings for their stories.

Swire Perks for Blueprint Members

Did you know that Blueprint is owned and operated by Swire Properties? This gives us exclusive access to all kinds of Swire-led initiatives which we happily share with our Community. Take Swire Properties’ Green Performance Pledge for example – by joining Blueprint, our Members are automatically contributing to a greener future by way of Blueprint’s Pledge and our commitment to the Business Ambition for 1.5⁰C campaign. Members were also spoiled with concert tickets for the Sounditation Journey and Project After 6 which took place at ArtisTree. Both sessions were tremendously uplifting and the perfect little get-away from work (without being too physically far away from work) according to our lucky Members.

Check out our Instagram for more events and what Blueprint Members enjoyed throughout what was a fabulous 2022.
Blueprint Member Spotlight - JustKitchen
We are very excited to feature JustKitchen in our new Member Spotlight series and share the stories of the passionate foodies who work tirelessly to reimagine the concept of “cloud kitchen” right here at our Blueprint Café. Did you know, their behind the scenes Team is also in one of the Private Offices at Blueprint!

Let us introduce you to David, the Head of Culinary at JustKitchen, who is the brainpower behind all the dishes & food served at their pop-up here at Blueprint and across their other kitchens in Hong Kong. David manages JustKitchen’s main ‘hub’ kitchen and the ’spoke’ sites, ensuring every dish is perfect before leaving the kitchen.

He is extremely modest in his culinary skills, but David has an extensive background from his time at Joël Robuchon, Catalunya, JIA restaurants group, R+D at Foodpanda and Rockpool Dining Group in Australia.

Trying new restaurants, and cooking at home (when he has the time!)

Favourite JustKitchen Cuisine:
Taiwanese, from InLuck, BIT Beef Noodle to Formosa Chang, he loves a bowl of traditional and hearty pork mince with rice.

Next up, meet Ryan, the Country Managing Director who is born & raised in Melbourne, Australia. Ryan has always been extremely passionate about food and its ability to bring people together. He has a broad international history in the F&B industry from working in Australia, Vietnam and now Hong Kong. Before joining JustKitchen, Ryan lead the Kitchens & Concepts team for Foodpanda, curating their own in-house brands and ghost kitchens.

Fun Fact:
Ryan is the co-founder of Bánh Mì Kitchen - Hong Kong’s favourite authentic Bánh Mì’s, also available right here at Blueprint!

How did Bánh Mì Kitchen start?
In 2013, Ryan moved to Ho Chi Minh City for a job and fell in love with Vietnamese cuisine. He quickly became accustomed to eating freshly made bánh mì for breakfast every morning alongside his mandatory Vietnamese coffee.

He returned to Hong Kong in 2016, where he started his own concept, with the goal to bring the fresh Vietnamese experience to Hong Kong. He still runs this concept across multiple Hong Kong locations.

At Blueprint, our diverse team of eight shares a passion for creating a premium coworking and event venue space. We are a group of go-getters who are always in pursuit of what’s next. If you have ever been to Blueprint, you may have noticed how our team stretches the extra mile to provide the best service to our Members and Event Venue Clients. Here’s your chance to get to know us a little better. It’s these unique and intimate traits that contribute to shaping the vibrant Blueprint Community.

Cathy, our Head of Operations, said it best when she described our team as “genuine and authentic”. Luckily we work in a space which is the epitome of openness and flexibility, which naturally allows us to bring our best selves to work every day. The Team comes together like a “jigsaw puzzle”, according to Vinci, our Events Lead. Or in Darren, our Events Assistants’, words, we are an “agile football team with the best line-up”. It’s our collective efforts that bring everything together seamlessly and beautifully which directly reflects in our operations and design. Always striving to bring more to the Community, Eurica, our Community Assistant, enjoys how our team constantly comes up with innovations and creative solutions, and our dedication to being flexible and pragmatic.

None of this would be possible without the encouragement and appreciation of the Community. Overwhelmingly, the Team cited that they were happiest when the Community is happy. Emily, our Administrative Assistant, feels “tremendously satisfied” when she’s helped the different individuals (e.g. Blueprint Members, Event Venue Clients, Café Guests) coming to Blueprint fulfil the goals and expectations of their visit. Similarly, Darren, gets his satisfaction from helping clients organise events from start to finish, and the challenge that “every single event is different”. Meanwhile, Hung, our General Services Attendant, finds its “heart-warming to hear our Members refer to Blueprint as “home away from home””. I don’t think any of us can argue with that.

What are we like outside of Blueprint? We’re actually not that different when our energies are directed to our hobbies and interests. What may surprise you though is the array of areas these cover. From sports, food, cooking, tarot reading, (regular) reading, socialising, travel, languages and music (jazz and ukulele, anyone?). Jessica, our Community Lead, actually studied sports science and was a national-level gymnast, where she built a foundation of flexibility which she brings to work. Don’t let Brian’s title of IT & Event Support Technician fool you into thinking he’s a typical “IT guy”. Though dealing with IT can sometimes feel like you need superpowers, Brian also has something supernatural to share. Next time you’re at Blueprint, you might be even pick-up where we’ve allowed our personal interests to shine through.

International Women’s Day @ Blueprint
Meet Cynthia, the female founder of Wellsky Wholistic Health Consultancy and a Wellness Architect who is positively impacting people’s lives through advocating wellness and transformation. With passion, her work has become her calling.

Cynthia cares deeply about the urgency to develop greater human sensitivity which focuses on the Power of Femininity – Care and love, Collaboration, Communication, Inclusion & Diversity. She believes that these are imperative to help people transcend the current situations we face and to achieve real freedom in life.

As a female entrepreneur, Cynthia envisions an ultimate destination – her dream, a Wellness Academy, where people can learn and cultivate a wide range of alternative healing and wellness programs, which may create a paradigm shift to a new cultural and spiritual transformation. Along her entrepreneurial and life journey, Cynthia embraces enduring transitions and transformation with her courageous character, and she is always ready to share and inspire.

What was the catalyst to you becoming an entrepreneur?

I’m not one to follow other people’s paths or ordinary routines. Rather, I enjoy being my own boss. In order to do so, creativity becomes the keynote of my theme in life.

I love new adventures. I think this is what an entrepreneur needs. I quit my stable government translator job to do an 18-month study vacation for myself. I travelled around to study with renowned NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) co-developers.

Their teaching and work opened up the sophistication of healing world to me, and enhanced my genuine interest and caring of the people I met and continue to meet.

With what I have learned with those incredible teachers, I started my training business in 2002 and have had actively worked with professionals, bankers, executive leaders and people in universities, government, medical and social welfare sectors which makes the journey most memorable.

What has been the driving force behind your continuation of this journey?

I love to be a curator - gathering people to work and play together in a way that allows me to keep to my own desired ways of working and living. To be able to work with the like-minded and innovative professionals all along this journey makes it all the more exciting and meaningful.

Rediscovering clarity is the best way to keep yourself moving. I keep asking myself from time to time, “Why do I keep doing this? If I’m not doing this, how would I feel”.

It's delightful to work with people who are courageous enough to face their crises and chaos as they seek wellness through a better quality life in their health, career and relationships.

My role is to be an active listener allowing people to turn their problems into solutions through connecting with their inner voices and strengths.

To achieve sustainable wellness as an influencer takes a lot of courage and determination too. To keep your goals and practices moving progressively, you have to make sure you are driven by a big enough dream. I practice as I preach so that I shall become a role model first.

Cynthia, Poon Tsz Ki

International Women’s Day @ Blueprint
Everly is the CEO of a biotechnology start-up, Anti Allergy Food Club, as well as the founder of non-profit organization, Deep Tech Girl.

After joining the tech industry, Everly witnessed how females strive to break stereotypes and push boundaries to get a foot hold in this seemingly male-dominated industry.

With a vision to #BreakTheBias and create a more inclusive world, Everly has made it her mission to offer her knowledge and insights in AI, biotechnology, and deep technology to all the women out there with a similar pursuit.

Click here to check out Everly’s interview with ViuTV (Women Support Women). She shares her valuable experience to inspire and educate young women to become more confident with technology. Everly’s hope is to pave the way for young women to become cloud architects, innovators, creators, and leaders of their own futures.

Everly has experienced first-hand some of the barriers and biases women entrepreneurs face, and has some encouraging advice on how to face these challenges.

How did you overcome the greatest challenge you’ve encountered?

The most difficult time was when my health was in such a condition that I could barely work. During this time day-to-day and executive decisions continued to pile up, and the ever-challenging cashflow was even harder to manage.

I tried to use CREATIVITY with the only hour I could spare in the day while I was sick. I looked for methods to automate the workflow, speed up processes, and compensate for the hours that I could not work.

An entrepreneur should use 80% of their time to reflect on HOW to make their business more efficient, instead of doing things without detailed consideration. Each time you will gain new insights and find that even 20% of your workload might not be necessary to achieve the same goals. Then you could better invest the team’s time to serve the clients and scale up your business.

What is your ethos as an entrepreneur?

Vision and mission (V&M) are most important as a founder. As an entrepreneur you may need to work 112 hours per week and choose to “fully integrate your work with your life”. Your V&M will serve as the ultimate answer to support you through these tough 5-10 years before you can scale up your company to Series C, D or even being listed!

If the V&M are meaningful enough to you, it will help make facing the sacrifices you have made easier, and help carry you through this long journey with no regrets.

V&M are for the founder to justify how they look at the world and want to make it a better place for all to live, not for the sake of promotion or investor relations.

Blueprint 2021 Highlights
What a year 2021 has been for the Blueprint Community! Unexpectedly, Covid-19 stuck around making everyone’s lives more difficult, but we kept our heads up and made the most out of the year. A huge thanks to our wonderful Members who have been integral to making it a great year with their support and participation.

Read on for a glimpse into some of our best 2021 moments. Want more insights into the Blueprint life? Check out our Instagram.

Recharge & Refuel
Blueprint collaborated with LIGHTS//OUT and Chickpea to keep our Members fit and healthy. Starting with a super-energetic HIIT x Shadowboxing workout by LIGHTS//OUT to recharge, Members then were refuelled with a rewarding protein-packed lunch from Chickpea.

Full of Exclusive Facilities
Blueprint Members’ Toolkit Exclusives
At Blueprint, we continually review, refresh and add to our Blueprint Members’ Toolkit. Coming in hot were our newest Toolkit Partners, Spectra , who offered one deserving Member Company a 4-week complimentary marketing-as-a-subscription service. Congratulations to Reap Technologies who won the prize. Can’t wait to see your elevated pitch at our next Blueprint Members’ Pitch Night.

Camera, Lights,…Video Conference
Blueprint Members have fallen in love with our installation of ”Crestron Mercury” which allows them to instantly kick-start a video-meeting by plug and play, perfectly and simply each time with just their laptop. No more messy cables and application downloads, and it’s just a sneak peak of more to come…

Community Fun & Games
Blueprint Board Games with our very own Tien Gow masters
Learning new skills can be fun and cultural as we gathered Members for an introduction and a few rounds of a lost Chinese game of Tien Gow (Sky 9).

Blueprint 2021 Highlights (Cont.)
We couldn’t help ourselves. With COVID-19 still around, we couldn’t resist sharing more of how we lifted our spirits at Blueprint in 2021. Discover how our vibrant Blueprint Community came together for various good causes and meaningful collaborations. If you missed our earlier post, head back to see what else kept us busy in 2021, or click through to our Instagram.

Blueprint Gives Back
Pink is the new Blue(print)?
Those that work together, Pink Together – not once, but twice. On Oct 26th, Blueprint arranged pink masks from MaskOn for Members who generously donated in support of the HK Breast Cancer Foundation . Then on Nov 19th, we raised awareness of LGBT+ Inclusion by donning more pink. The pink ladies of Team Blueprint all look good in pink right? How does Pinkprint sound?

Industry Collaborations & Cross-Overs
Industry Based Coffees
When you’re a sole entrepreneur or a small business, getting a second opinion can be a struggle. During 2021, Blueprint invited Member Companies in similar industries for coffee catch-ups so that the friendly faces at the water cooler became a font of knowledge.

Blueprint Green Tips
Introduction of Food Waste Recycling
In 2021, Blueprint added food waste recycling bins in the pantries of our workspaces as well as in the café. Now our paper, plastic, and can recycling bins have a new friend.

Fun-filled Christmas Carnival
16 December, 2021
Town Hall @ Blueprint
The Blueprint Christmas Party this year was a great success! Last year’s Christmas was so wonderful, the Community Team pulled out all stops to make this year even better. We curated plentiful party games and abundant gift-giving to spread the holiday joy and cheer. With easy access to our Town Hall, and the benefit of all the space it offers, we amped up the fun factor with a diverse mix of interactive party games spread across the floor allowing all Members to participate. Peels of laughter could be heard as Members tested their acting skills in rounds of charades (let’s just say they should probably stick to their day jobs), and it was great to see the team comradery as Members intermingled and collaborated to compete against other mixed Member teams in flip cup. Not only did the games get better, the Christmas gifts organised by the Community Team for the Members also upped the ante. Members were beside themselves (and each other) trying to garner the best gifts. In the end, everyone was a winner and no one left empty-handed.

With so much fun, a great turnout and fantastic feedback, the Community Team is already brainstorming how we can make it even better for 2022! Sign up for your Membership today!
"The Longest Distance Completed Champion goes to…Team Blueprint!" What an absolutely unforgettable Friday for our Community!

ArtisTree @ Taikoo Place
Congratulations to Team Blueprint for achieving such a remarkable result in the Taikoo Place 8-Hour Charity Spin. We collectively rode all 271km relentlessly, starting out strong and finishing even stronger. We are glad that our persistence and grit got us to the finish line and out-do the other 18 tenant contestants at Taikoo Place.

It was a great honor to participate in this Corporate Wellness Challenge with all of the stellar and kind-hearted riders which were a truly collaborative mix of Blueprint Member Companies and Event Venue Clients!

Blueprint Buzz: What Makes Blueprint a standout coworking space to you?
We reached out to some of our Members last month with our next Blueprint Buzz question – this time, asking them what makes Blueprint a standout coworking space to them. For this question, we made sure to choose a selection of Members on different Membership plans so we could get some well-rounded answers from different perspectives, such as what stood out to a Private Office Member versus what might stand out to a Flexi-Pass Member.

However, we found that quite a few things were standouts to all Members we asked, ranging from the friendliness of our Team, the good management of the space, efforts we put in for Community engagement, our position in the Taikoo Place community and its various initiatives, access to different sized Meeting Rooms, and even breathing space on our Terrace!

Thanks to all our wonderful Members who gave us such positive feedback and helped us appreciate our space even more! We hope to continue to provide awesome standout services to all of our Member Companies.

LIGHTS//OUT x Chickpea @ Blueprint Member Event
26 August, 2021
Blueprint joined forces with LIGHTS//OUT Boxing Club and Chickpea Canteen for a Member Event filled with explosive energy and mouth-watering meals!
Trainers from LIGHTS//OUT led our Members through a 40-minute high-intensity interval training workout to a combination of songs where we jumped, squatted, and shadowboxed to the beat! It was challenging yet extremely fun, especially the partner workouts at the end which inspired us to push ourselves to the limit.
The workout was followed by a well-deserved lunch lovingly prepared by our friends at Chickpea Canteen. Our Members chowed down on protein-packed hummus bowls, salads, and pita pockets in our Lounge – a refueling reward that was definitely earned!
We can’t wait for any future collaborations with LIGHTS//OUT and Chickpea Canteen – keep your eyes peeled for what’s next!

Get To Know Team Blueprint: Planning for Fun Community Enagement! - Insight from our Summer Intern Yannes Ho
Time flies and my 6 weeks as a Summer intern at Blueprint have come to an end. Some of you might wonder, what have I done so far? Well, let me tell you now!

Other than handling Members’ enquiries and operational matters, I was working on how to better engage our Community Members - through activities, events and promotional materials!

For example, I am so glad that many showed great interest and gave positive feedback on our Blueprint Boardgames Night. Not only is it a valuable opportunity for me to bond with our Members, it also allows Members to have some fun and connect with one another! If you missed it, no worries - we still have a 3rd session coming soon!

So if you see a some social media posts on an upcoming event next time, it might be planned or suggested by me! I’ll be on the lookout to see what Blueprint put together – I’m sure it’ll be awesome!
Blueprint Board Games Sessions: "Tien Gow/天九/Sky 9"
The Blueprint Board Games Club is now in full swing!
For our first few sessions, resident Blueprint Members Stanley & John have been taking the reins to teach our Community the rules of the cultural and historical dominoes game Tien Gow / Sky 9. The game play and scoring system is quite complex which is what makes the game so interesting. Players need to rely on good strategy (and often luck!) in order to win against their opponents.
Many Members have taken on the challenge of learning how to play, and each session has seen plenty of eager new faces! The game is somewhat of a dying art and not very many people still know how to play this historic and cultural game, so what luck that we have not only one but two Blueprint Members who still play this game and are keen to share its secrets with us!
What's next on the Board Games Club agenda? Stay tuned!

Get To Know Team Blueprint: A Day At Blueprint's 2F Reception Desk - Insight from our Admin Assistant Emma Pang
Hello, my name is Emma, the Administrative Assistant in Blueprint. Except sitting at the reception desk and saying “Good morning” or “Hello” to our Members and the guests coming in Blueprint, do you know what else I need to work on every day? Let me share with you my day working at Blueprint’s 2F reception desk.

Receiving packages from couriers usually starts my day. Packages for our Members are all well received at 2F reception. Sometimes I can receive more than 10 packages from couriers in a day! What an amazing number! Another main task at Blueprint’s reception is to respond to guests’ general enquiries. As I am the first point to meet the guests when they enter Blueprint, if they have any questions to ask, it is important for me to first understand what they are interested in, so that I can direct them to my responsible colleagues who can cater to their needs.

Aside from the operational duties I mentioned above, I also take care of the administrative works for Blueprint (as you can see from my title). The admin works I need to handle include the ordering of consumables, following up with contractors regarding any quotations received or contract renewal, payment settlement with vendors, and many others. The ability to multi-task is important as I need to pay attention to the guests coming in and out Blueprint, and at the same time, I have to work on the admin tasks at the reception desk.

That’s all for my day working in Blueprint. I hope you understand more of my work!

Exclusive Pop-Up Gig at Blueprint by Project After 6: Music Works & MOOV
18 June, 2021
Blueprint was lucky to be the stage for an exclusive pop-up gig! Joined by local celebrity guests ToNick and Charlie, our Members enjoyed a spontaneous Friday afternoon music boost in our Town Hall, our largest and most flexible Event Venue.
A big thank you to the musical performers and Swire Properties' Project After 6 initiative for organizing such a great Music Works event (in collaboration with streaming service MOOV).
It was great fun having music brought right to our Members' coworking and office space doorstep, whilst utilizing our Town Hall for such a creative and fresh event. Of course, adequate social-distancing measure and safety precautions were taken prior to and during the performance, which enabled everyone involved to have a fun yet safe experience!
Stay tuned for more exclusive pop-up gigs happening around Taikoo Place - maybe your office space will be next!
Blueprint Buzz Question 2
We recently hand-picked some Blueprint Members we thought were best (digitally) suited to answer our latest Buzz question: What are your top tips for Digital Transformation?.
The results are in - and our participating Members strongly agreed that when thinking about Digital Transformation, we should be going with a simpler approach rather than looking at everything all at once.

We came across words of digital wisdom such as:
"Big goals are necessary, but remember that growth is found in your roots.”
“Take stock of what you do today and what you’d like to do differently.”
“Know thyself and make realistic visions of your future.”
"We also need to help people go through the transition and manage their emotional state along the journey i.e. the SARAH curve: Shock, Anger, Resistance, Acceptance and High Hope.”

In short, Digital Transformation is all about the process and building up from your roots. Before thinking about all the 'big data' or technology involved, make sure you have a solid foundation and understanding of what you want to achieve in order to succeed. It's important to first establish what you want to achieve and define your goals clearly before starting your innovation processes and strategy.

"Please Be Seated" Comes To Taikoo Park
19 May, 2021
Taikoo Park
Designed by the acclaimed London-based artist, Paul Cocksedge, Hong Kong’s very own “Please Be Seated” has debuted at Taikoo Place. Inspired by the ebb and flow of city life, the piece merges innovation, sustainability and art. It features arches that rise up and curve under to make space for people to pass through, or stop and enjoy a moment of relaxation. Constructed using sustainably sourced timber, this latest addition to the Taikoo Place Artwalk Collection will be on permanent display at Taikoo Park for the community to enjoy.
An earlier version made its debut in China in 2020 and has been making waves during its tour across Swire Properties’ developments in Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing.

SPL’s Placemaking Academy Wins Big at the 2021 Event Marketing Awards!
Blueprint would like to extend our warmest congratulations to Swire Properties’ Placemaking Academy students for their amazing achievement at the 2021 Event Marketing Awards! The team won not one but two Gold awards in the Best Creative Idea and Best Public Event categories.
The second edition of the Academy saw 21 students from four Hong Kong universities take up an apprenticeship (from July to December 2020) to design, plan and execute the Company’s year-end community celebration – the White Christmas Street Fair.
During this time, Blueprint acted as a home base for these students and they were able to come up with their fantastic ideas inside of our Coworking Space facilities. Our flexible Event Venues also proved very useful when helping them pitch and present their ideas to various audiences in safe yet vibrant environments such as our Auditorium and Town Hall.
Once again, a big congratulations to all the Placemaking Academy students involved, and Blueprint is very happy we got to play a role in fostering their innovation.

There were freebies up for grabs as well as a range of thoughtful gifts for all our Members to win through a Lucky Draw.
Some Members also chose to take part in Secret Santa, where they were randomly given the name of another Member and tasked with buying them a present within a HK$100 budget.
The event garnered a great Christmas turnout and we were happy to see so many masked-but-smiling faces winning their presents!

We put in our (pink) steps for a good cause in October. As part of Bravera's #PinkSteps Walkathon Challenge, we walked to raise breast cancer awareness and donated towards Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation whilst we did it!

The Loop

As a group, we managed to pool together 5.35kg of fresh sweet potato leaves which were then generously donated to Feeding Hong Kong.
