As an architect used to working abroad, Kumar wanted to establish a network of homes and apartments where itinerant professionals could go to live, work, and converse while they tackled temporary freelance jobs in foreign countries. The result is a network of home offices in five countries. In his own Berlin apartment/office, Kumar has workstations for up to 10 people.
