Being in an office can be considered so last season and for some a stifling environment. Here are some alternatives.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a freelancer who is in need of a change of scenery or whether you’re just simply over your office neighbour and their weird smelling lunch choices.

Being in an office can be considered so last season and for some a stifling environment.

If you’re starting a business, you’re always on the road… there are some great friendly and trendy places to work out of the office. These spaces are filled with inspiring, like-minded individuals. Joburg has some of the best selection of shared or co-working spaces and the list is growing.

Here’s a list of trendy and amazing workspaces:
