To spend a day in a coworking space is something I have been planning to do but never had a chance. Most coworking areas are not-so-near my location and going out of the village is not very ideal, thanks to the heavy traffic in the Metro. I also saw some packages with expensive rates and not very welcoming to a per-day-only office setup. Have you tried coworking or do you wish to explore this arrangement?
Coworking is a style of work that involves a shared workplace, often an office, and independent activity. Unlike in a typical office, those coworking are usually not employed by the same organization. Typically, it is attractive to work-at-home professionals, freelancers, independent contractors, or people who travel frequently who end up working in relative isolation. (Source: Wikipedia)
Just when I was reconsidering an area in Alabang (either LaunchPad or Regus) and in Las Pinas (Gather), I saw two possible spots with no need to leave the subdivision! So while walking around Pergola and eating at Container Turf came into view The Common Space and WorkPlays.
Address: Unit 203, The Pergola Mall, Aguirre Ave., Cor. Gaches St., BF Homes
Address: 3/F C&C Building, Aguirre Ave., BF Homes
Workplays is a coworking space provider that caters to freelancers, small companies, and startup businesses. They aim to offer their tenants a work space that is both relaxing and mentally stimulating, breaking the mold of conventional offices; providing a conducive work area plus the opportunity to meet and work with other entrepreneurs.
At the moment, I am only eyeing for three things: the location/parking, amenities, and rates for half-day, whole-day-only and one month plus per hour meeting room fee of 5 people.
Shall I include in the category where is the better coffee? 🙂
For now, I just like to know if this kind of setting is for me. If the experience is good, I am open to cowork for weeks or even months. Well, both have unlimited wifi connection and coffee refills so this must be okay! Where to spend an office day?
