Advantages of working in a small coworking space

In 2008, THECUBE opened its doors as London’s second coworking space. Since then, especially over the last couple of years, London has seen an absolute explosion in coworking spaces. In 2017, more than 20% of office space in Central London alone is provided by coworking spaces. This means hundreds of coworking spaces.
So with so many spaces to choose from, how do you know what kind of a space is right for you? THECUBE itself is a small coworking space, because we think it gives individuals and organisations different advantages compared to some of the large ones around.
  • Community and complementary skills: From having lunch together, to learning about each others projects and examining possibilities to work together or employ each other, as well as sharing skill sets – we know that this is typically advertised for coworking space. But 10 years of experience in this industry has shown that this really only happens in a small spaces. There is no space for anonymity in small spaces, so networking and learning from each other comes naturally.
  • Structure: For some, the benefits of running your own company can be having the flexibility to work when you want and where you want. However, our members repeatedly tell us that they enjoy coming to our small coworking space because it provides them with the structure that they often lack when working from home. The best intentions for a productive workday mean nothing if procrastination takes over – be it watching a movie or cleaning the kitchen cupboards. Going to an office and having a dedicated space for you to work in, is what keeps you accountable and establishes a routine, putting you in the mindset to get the work done and done well.
  • Amenities and perks: Coworking spaces provide you with all the amenities you need for a productive day – from office furniture and storage solutions to conference rooms, kitchens to break out areas, and printing facilities and speedy broadband.
  • Inspiration: By joining a small coworking space with a tight-knit community, we are pretty certain you will be surrounded by other helpful and innovative individuals and organisations that stimulate your thinking and may even inspire your next big company step!
