One of the largest coworking spaces to open in Metro Manila, Spaces occupies 3,200 square meters of floor space across 2 floors in World Plaza in Bonifacio Global City (BGC). The coworking arm of IWG, which also operates Regus, also has a center in Makati along Arnaiz Avenue. However, today we'll take a closer look at its first center and give you an inside look so you can experience what working here is like.
A Hard to Beat Location
You'll find Spaces conveniently located along 5th avenue, a short walk away from Shangri-La at The Fort, The Philippine Stock Exchange, Bonifacio High Street, and One High Street. In other words, you won't ever struggle to find a spot to have lunch or get a snack or even a drink as there are plenty of options. There's even a plethora of shopping areas and workout places - from indoor cycling to boxing to yoga - all nearby for that pre-work or after-work burn.
Need a mid-afternoon caffeine break? You've got endless options all within 10 mins walking distance from World Plaza depending on your tastes - from Toby's Estate, Caravan Black, Elephant Grounds, Because Coffee, Tim Hortons, and Starbucks.
Of there 3,200 sqm workspace, Spaces offers 815sqm in pure coworking space, aka an open-plan layout where you can choose to work at one of their desks or booths that all have their own plugs so you don't have to worry about your devices running low on battery. They also provide phone booths so you can take your calls or Skype meetings in peace.
This coworking space can also be converted into an event space that can accommodate up to 200 people. Whether you're looking to host a workshop, a networking night, a panel discussion, or a company celebration, Spaces can help you organize the room to match your requirements.
If you're looking for something with more privacy, they've got 54 private offices across their two floors ranging for 2 pax rooms up to 50 pax rooms, all fully-furnished with desks, chairs, and a telephone. With their private offices you'll have access to your office 24/7 so you can work on your own schedule.
When you need to conduct a brainstorming session or a team meeting, Spaces provides meeting rooms that can accommodate 4-15 people. Fully-equipped with a monitor which you can wirelessly connect your laptop to, you can easily share your screen or show your presentation with your colleagues or clients.
European Design with Local Touches
Staying true to their Amsterdam roots, Spaces has a European aesthetic when it comes to its design that you can see from their color palette, their furniture, and down to the small decors placed on their shelves. However, they do also bring in local touches with Filipino artistry.
In a time when nearly everything is online and working from home is increasing in popularity, particularly with the worsening traffic in the Metro, Spaces aims to get people back into the office, even if for a few days during the week. It has created a community where entrepreneurs, startups, and Fortune 500 companies can come and work near each other. But if you're not after the community aspect, then at least they offer a reliable and secure Internet connection so you can work uninterrupted.
