OUR CONSULTANTS

Jerome Chang founded BLANKSPACES to form a community of like-minded, ambitious go-getters. Armed maybe too naively - therefore dangerously - with an architecture degree from Harvard and structural engineering degrees from Cornell, he took a left- and right-brain approach to convert the money- sinking office space expense into a  vibrant, revenue generator. It is this fundamental intuition that users choose to pay for their workspace, versus employees who have to occupy their workspace, that distinguishes Jerome’s architectural and management expertise.

Jerome also runs a boutique architectural design practice, CODAspaces. CODA essentially handles most of the design & project management consulting scope. Follow/connect with Jerome on LinkedIn.
