Co-working is a style of work that involves a shared working environment, sometimes an office, but the focus is on independent activity. Unlike in a typical office environment, those co-working are usually not employed by the same organization. This type of work style is typically attractive to work-at home professionals, independent contractors, or people who travel frequently who end up working in relative isolation. Co-working is the social gathering of a group of people, who are still working independently, but who share values, and who are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with talented people in the same space.

Our showrooms are set up as Shared Spaces to allow co-working. These showrooms are enabled with work spaces that allow you to manage your work related activities from taking care of emails through to printing documents for a client presentation. We have the ability to provide a private office space if required, casual seating for informal meetings and we even supply the coffee!
