About Us

Since 2007 we have been at the forefront of the shift in how and where people work. We create inspirational, design-led workspaces in towns and cities across the South West. Our members are successful freelancers, ambitious start-ups, visionary entrepreneurs and growing small businesses. We have consciously chosen not just to focus on cities, as increasingly people want to work local and companies are adopting agile and hybrid working models. Coworking now forms an important part of the economic model for regional town and city centres. And we are at the heart of that change.

We design each of our spaces from scratch so no two are the same. We don’t have a singular brand identity that we stamp all over them, preferring instead to make each of them unique to their location. This is harder than the alternative, but sets us apart, and treats our members as individuals, not numbers. This means our buildings look amazing and feel like they belong.

We insist on them being in central locations too – so you can walk, cycle or get public transport to them. We invest heavily in them, so they look fantastic and have all the resources you need to thrive. We design them to include shared coworking areas, dedicated desks and private offices. And to make sure you don’t spend all your time at your desk, we wrap them around a hub consisting of kitchen, lounge, gardens, event spaces, resources and meeting rooms.

Then we throw in great coffee, a good dose of table-top football, table tennis, beer trolley, pop-up pizza, book club, running club, rounders in the park and loads of social events. Because humans are social animals and to be productive, you also need time out.
