It’s one thing to rent an office space. It’s another to get an AMAZING office space with a whole small business community to go with it. That’s why The Work Lodge was formed: to build a community that would foster collaboration and cooperation that enables solopreneurs and other small companies to work in ways the traditional business space would never enable.

What would a space like that look like? Something like this…

That’s just the entry area, but there’s plenty to see there alone, like that uber-comfortable beanbag and velvet-soft rug,…

… the amphitheater, complete with torso-sized pillows, the overhead disco ball spinning next to the quiet upstairs workspace…

And this hollowed underwater mine from World War I that serves as the space’s coffee station.

By the way: what’s that big orange thing? Is that what we think it is…?

They even have space ships.

OK, so they’re not space ships. But they are these really cool pods that muffle outside noise and keep others from hearing you so you can have conversations right there in the middle of the room. They’re super comfortable too!

The Work Lodge’s back hallways lead to rooms of all sizes. The ceilings are high and the hallways long to add a feeling of connection and community without sacrificing privacy for individual companies.

Rooms range from single person offices to large corner spaces for whole teams.

The large assembly room at the back of the building holds 150 comfortably.

The chairs are clean, aesthetic, and surprisingly comfortable, too.

These beautiful features- huddle rooms, nice offices, an X-Box room for gamers, common couches so comfortable you could sleep on them- are all reasons to rent or hang out at The Work Lodge. But the real reason companies stay is the community; the place looks even better full.

They even hold workshops for resident companies and solopreneurs in the front and back presentation rooms.

“The point of The Work Lodge is to create more than a work space. We want to bring the advantages of traditional workspace to our residents, but we also want them to be able to come together,” says CEO Mike Thakur.

“That’s how you get the best atmosphere, the best ideas. It’s about the collaboration of people with different ideas. Fostering that is our main mission, our purpose.”
