A new era of here, there, and everywhere working is upon us. Many people are no longer required to be in the office five-days a week, but they don’t necessarily want to sit at home either.  Enter: the remote workspace. They are often far better designed than the average office, offer excellent wifi and unique networking opportunities. 

Of course, co-working spaces were already thriving pre-pandemic, but with millions more people now hybrid working, there’s a greater demand for them, as well as for cozy conference centres (ideal for bringing a completely remote workforce together).

We’ve searched the globe for some of the most innovative, exciting and purposeful workspaces out there. These are our top picks.

Certified B Corp x+why is on a mission to change the way the world works through purpose built workspaces. They’re set on building a community of purpose driven leaders, companies and movements who are all on the same page about one thing: business can be more. 

With locations spread across East and Central London – and plans for UK-wide expansion underway – they’ve created unique spaces with purpose cemented into the foundations.

Wellness spaces, bike storage, biophilic design and mood balanced lighting & sound all coalesce to create an inspiring, calming and purposeful space. 

As a B Corp, x+why has also committed to being as sustainable as possible. In order to become a member, individuals have to sign their pledge for better business (this is a non-negotiable): a commitment – not to perfection, but to improvement.

Who doesn’t want to be a better version of themselves, work with a better version of their team, and improve the world while they’re at it? 

The Global Treehouse is a uniquely designed space acting as the hub for a global community of purposeful business leaders. The workspace is purpose-built to help people change their behaviours, increase collaboration and develop new skills through the concept of mindfitness.

Resting on a belief that our minds can be trained, the specially developed meditation program incorporates Japanese Zen in order to foster a new era of better business leaders. 

Above all, The Treehouse wants to bring together business leaders and thinkers who share a belief that remarkable things happen when open-minded communities intersect with inspiring spaces.
