The Big Question: Why has coworking suddenly become the force it is today? 

Our panellists give their opinion on the phenomenon that is coworking.

The idea of coworking has been around for a long time, but now it’s truly de rigueur across business verticals. Where the modern 9-to-5 has shifted, flexibility is key, and these mixed use and often inspiring spaces can be motivational in and of themselves, presenting the opportunity to network offline in the real world, contra to the increase of homeworking and the isolation that can bring.

The impact the workplace has on its community is what 2020 should be all about. Not only in terms of its environmental impact, but also on the people who work within it and the community around it – a broadening focus, beyond the balance sheet, with investment in the social benefits on offer at work, that will encourage a spirit of collaboration and value across our people, supply chain, customers and the community around us.

The phenomenon of coworking seems to have been a result of a perfect storm of more people working independently, technology, rising rents and travel costs, as well as a changing mindset about the purpose of the workplace, with a real desire for a greater work/life balance. Interestingly, the features of coworking – creating a community and providing inspiration through interaction, which appealed so much to the freelancers who chose to work this way, –evolved to become game changers for workplace design more generally.

Commercial real estate is experiencing a paradigm shift and established models are making way for new ones – like coworking. Space is no longer an asset to be managed but a flexible service to be offered and a human experience to be enjoyed. The coworking model has delivered these spaces for end-users where traditional leasing models failed. I believe the sector’s shift has only just begun…innovation will come in many forms!

First, technology has finally caught up with agile working aspirations and you can now work pretty much anywhere with decent WiFi. There are also more gig economy freelancers and micro-businesses around, looking for decent facilities in good locations, especially those with a cool factor, rather than working in isolation. Finally, ever since the 2008 crash, businesses have been looking to structure their real estate exposure in a much more flexible way.

Coworking offers low start-up costs, short leases, spatial flexibility, shared resources and larger company sociability for new entrepreneurs. Plus, there’s often an incubator, mentoring culture and strong interior style to create a feeling of belonging. There are still practical challenges, however, including privacy and acoustic controls. I look forward to seeing how we, the design community, can work with experienced users and operational teams to evolve these environments into more mature workspaces.
