Creative Coworking Offices

Today there are several types of offices available for office rent in Hungary . Moreover, there are not only the traditional workstations. This mini-series takes a look at different types of offices. The first part deals with the so called coworking offices.

Coworking offices involve shared working environment in up-to-date office buildings. It is an attractive solution for work-at-home professionals, independent contractors or smaller businesses and start-ups. Coworking office is also the social gathering of a group of people, who although work independently, but are also interested in synergy. It is usually situated in the downtown and includes phone lines, printer, internet, and other office appliances.  Sometimes coffee-, tea consumption, meeting or conference rooms, bathrooms, child or pet care settings are also provided.

Coworking or serviced offices: two for one?

Although instant or serviced offices and coworking workstations have much in common, the two are somehow different. A serviced office provides the infrastructure to run a business individually too; coworking office has the potential to fuel collaboration and innovation. However, office tenants prefer combining both types. In a coworking office we can rent just a chair with a common desk but also a whole individual office and even a meeting room for a specified period and against payment.  Office tenants can choose from various packages referring to the duration of the rent as well as the infrastructure.

What are the benefits of the coworking offices?
