Frequently Asked Questions
Coworking is a relatively recent trend whereby office owners offer to share the spaces available and provides collaborative office space solutions for people to grow their businesses or to people spending short periods of time in a specific location. It is hence very flexible as access is granted through membership-based subscriptions.
The main advantage resides in the flexibility. No need to rent (long-term) offices. Time spent in a coworking space can vary from few hours to several months. The overall infrastructure is in place. Most coworks offer excellent quality internet, comfortable workstations and usually a number of additional services such as free coffee, sometimes printing etc. Coworking places are also a very interesting place where to meet other people in the same or - on the contrary - very different businesses.
Depending on your use of the space, you may prefer FLEX desks (also called hot-desks) that can be reserved for half days or longer. Some people prefer working afternoons in the office for instance. Flex desks normally don't include 24/7 access nor storage. Fixed desks are more of a "normal" office and is used by workers that intend to have continuous presence and might want to leave at work their documents and computer.
