Think all co-working spaces are the same? Well we can pretty much guarantee that they’re not!
Admittedly there are certain features and attributes which they all have, but they often have their own quirks and idiosyncrasies which make them entirely unique.
In fact our recent feature on Co-Boat proves that very point - it’s a co-working space on a boat - a boat incidentally which will be circumnavigating the globe for an entire year.
A marvellous idea, we’re sure you’ll agree.
But we digress…
We’ve recently come across another co-working space which is just as unusual and certainly a lot different from the norm.
Well because it’s based in a tree.
Yep. You read that right. A Tree.
TREExOFFICE is an innovative new space which has been created by Australian American artist, Natalie Jeremijenko, artists Shuster & Mossley and architects Tate Harmer.
In essence it’s a co-working space which has been built around a tree in Hoxton Square, Hackney, East London. Within the space there are 8 individual workspaces, each with their own power supply and free Wifi.
If you fancy booking a desk in one, you can - it costs just £15 to book a desk for a half day during weekdays. Or if you’d like to rent out the entire space, you can do that too. The entire space can be hired out for just £120 for a half day during the week.
When you consider this is London, those are pretty reasonable fees!
It’s a space that is truly accessible to all. Community groups can rent it out for free at weekends and it can also be hired out for corporate meetings and events.
All revenue generated from the hire of TREExOFFICE will be reinvested back into parks and green spaces throughout Hackney.
Not only then is it having a positive impact right now for the sheer creativity that it’s bringing, but it will also leave a lasting positive impact on the local borough.
TREExOFFICE will be in place until 15th December. We reckon if you’re in the vicinity, you ought to check it out for sure!
