Hubs, co-working and shared office spaces have grown tremendously in popularity over the past few years as they are both an essential and excellent way to network and exchange ideas with other creatives. The main idea is to build a sense of community. Freelancers, and those who work from a home office often face periods of isolation as they work independently, and generally speaking, outside of regular and routine hours. Co-working spaces encourage people from different disciplines to meet, mingle and if possible, merge ideas for possible creative ventures.

The Hamstead Hub encompasses a brilliant fusion of shared space essentials—from chill out and relaxation corners, to function spaces and of course, work desks. Have a browse through this wonderful project below.

Just like a writers, artists and creatives suffer, from time to time, from mental block. The best thing to do in these instances, is to step away from the screen, paper or canvas and have a few moments to yourself to recharge and relax. Everybody knows, pushing yourself is not an effective way to combat mental block. With a minimalist, yet comfortable aura, this chill out area is the perfect space. You never know, you may fall asleep on one of these beanbags and wake with the answer to your problem!

If you have a brilliant idea, it is only natural that you would like to present it to future investors or partners. Furthermore, if you need to market your product or simply want an open discussion to take place, a conference room is essential. Being a freelancer, holding such an event at home is not suitable, therefore, The Hamstead Hub offers the potential for you to maintain a level of professionalism by giving individuals the opportunity to rent the conference space to host an event. With a minimalist approach, it is clear that there is only one objective here.
