The Work Cottage, Grand Rapids, MI
As more and more workers move beyond the cubicle, the need has arisen for a place for not only a little peace and quiet but a place where ideas can flow freely between professionals and entrepreneurs of different companies but similar goals.
Enter the coworking space, some of which have gone above and beyond the call for space to provide all kinds of amenities for their clients. Beth Buczynski has found twenty great examples of this innovative office concept that can give you a great idea of what to look for – or even start – in your own city.
1. Link Coworking – Austin, TX
Austinites love Link so much, it’s “mind-bottling.” Located right near a noodle house, movie theater, and sports bar, Link is in a great spot to get work done and then find some relaxation. Members (and even non-members) can use the clean, professional space to work, conduct meetings, and even hold fun events in the off-hours. It’s clear that Link put a lot of thought into the design of their space, providing co-workers with excellent lighting, some of the best chairs on the market, and even views of inspirational green space. There’s even covered outdoor seating if you feel like heading outside to work.
2. HeraHub – San Diego, California
Combine a spa with a coworking space, and you’ll have something like San Diego’s HeraHub. This work space is exclusively for women, and it shows, with flowers, candles, soft-lighting, and even chair massages. For women who enjoy beer, this space is right across the street from Karl Strauss Brewing Company. The ladies of HeraHub love the “calming, professional atmosphere,” as well as the opportunity that the “office-spa-oasis” space provides to meet and be inspired by other female entrepreneurs.
