A trend that many think is specific to London, co-working spaces date back to 90’s Berlin, New York City and San Francisco, with the first official space opening there in 2006. With a global surge in technology and online businesses, it would make sense for this kind of establishment to follow suit.
American game designer, author and theorist Bernie De Koven coined the term Co-working to describe the phenomenon of working as equals, which is a notably revolutionary phrase in a world of business where people tend to do the opposite.
From January, Quaker Street will be opening a creative workspace next door to the cafe, with the aim of bringing people’s ideas together collaboratively in split sections. The workspace will be divided into areas for independent workers, those who wish to work with others, as well as having a section for people who want to quickly and strategically develop ideas in a short space of time. The space is able to be hired out for office events/parties, staff training, team building exercises and much more! Quaker Street are aiming for a January launch, but keep your eyes peeled on our social media for updates closer to the time.
