Coworking spaces provide a refreshing update to traditional business offices, offering open-plan workspaces, beanbag lounge areas, games rooms, meeting pods and creative studios.
They really aim to break the mould and give the employees and business people of the 21st Century an inspiring atmosphere to work from.
And whilst most coworking spaces ultimately still take the form of a bunch of tables and chairs arranged in a building, with a few private rooms on the side, there are a few that are occupying really unique spaces, creating truly unique experiences.
