The way we approach our work spaces evolves and moves with the latest trends. Over the last few years, the typical office setting has been rethought, and coworking spaces are now the ‘in thing’. This innovative approach has seen several coworking spaces spring up all over London, and it encourages freelancers to collaborate or just find their space within a working environment that suits them more than an office.
London has some of the most forward-thinking freelancers in the world, and coworking spaces are often borne out of an entrepreneur using what they want to create for themselves, and taking that concept to like-minded freelancers. Wifi is now accessible in most city-spaces, and as Software improves, our dependence on paper-based documents decreases. Aussie has put together our list of coworking spaces for anyone who’s interested to see what there is on offer.
Aussie’s Pick – 5 Coworking Spaces in London –

What’s the Appeal of Coworking Spaces?
Unlike a typical office, a coworking space can be used as little or as much as needed. Each space has everything you need to sit down and start working. All coworking spaces incorporate some barista elements to their services and other refreshments. Each coworking space has its unique features, but most will have access to printing services.
One highlighted aspect is the access to networking and the potential for collaboration. In a typical 9 – 5 office setting, the only people you have immediate access to our other employees. This might work for a lot of business, but this can often lead to a lack of innovation. If you’re currently in an office and you’re thinking of going out on your own, the issue of a dedicated work space might stall your plans. The ‘what if?’ questions begin to hamper your process and you invest in the safety of the known against working towards your goals.
Aussie – the Can-Do Company That Supports Innovation –
Coworking spaces are an innovative way of rethinking how we work. At Aussie, we apply this idea of thinking outside of the box in every aspect of our business. We understand that our customers need different things when they move or when they require storage. One size fits all doesn’t work – that’s why we support new ideas that promote progress. For this reason, we like coworking spaces.
There might be instances where you would like to consider freelancing, but you need to store things. No problem – Aussie has excellent storage options that can double up as your offsite storage room. Don’t let things like storage hamper your progress, think outside of the box. There is always a solution to every situation. By using a self storage room and a coworking space, you could essentially run an entire company and reduce your overheads.
