Co-working is a movement that provides a collaborative space for creative, freelance, independent and nomadic workers that is underpinned by a core set of values:


Collaboration: One of the great benefits of working in a co-working space is that you will meet all sorts of people with all sorts of knowledge and where possible collaborate to support each others activities.

Openness: We believe in transparency and openness. In a world where people are free, but ideas are not, only a few benefit. When ideas are free, everyone benefits. Therefore, we encourage open spaces and discussions.

Community: We thrive on connections and mutual support. It is important that everyone give into as well as benefit from the strong community co-working has become.

Accessibility: In order to be fully open, we must make the effort to be accessible to all. This means that we endeavor to create both a financially and a physically accessible space. We are committed to this principle and welcome feedback on how we can make it even more accessible.

Sustainability: Shared spaces are also better for the planet, so we like to take that a little further and make certain our space is environmentally responsible.


Freelancers, home based and nomadic workers often find themselves working in isolation. Co-working develops a sense of community amongs participants. In a co-working space  there is an expectation that you will collaborate where possible and be prepared to draw on the help and support of others whilst respecting their right to get their own work done. One of the great benefits of co-working is it draws in a variety of people who enjoy and respect the difference.
