FAQ

What is coworking?

Coworking is office and meeting space used by a diverse range of businesses, private individuals and groups, all sharing adjacent offices or desks. It has the benefits of an office—a social environment, a professional location to meet with clients, and the all-important coffee machine and water cooler—as well as an independent and casual nature with options to come in to work occasionally, daily or anything in between to meet members’ needs
