With the knowledge I gained from my Master's thesis about what makes a great place to work, I visited several coworking spaces last week to find one to call home. After exploring the range of options from downtown Boston up to Cambridge, I decided to join the last space I visited, Workbar in Cambridge's Central Square. Here's why:
Spacious and inviting interior design
Workbar's 5th floor space in Central Square receives great natural light from its large windows, and is outfitted with carpet and sound absorbing surfaces to reduce noise. There are also enough standing desks and external monitors for enthusiasts like me.
Range of activity-based zones
With its no-conversation Study zone, its phone-friendly Switchboard area, and a range of spaces in between, Workbar provides great support for different activities and different personal preferences. I’m looking forward to using the phone booths, the large whiteboards, and the balcony!
Between two world famous universities and just down the street from several leading technology firms, Central Square promises to be a great place to explore opportunities as I build my future. The neighborhood also offers casual, authentic lunch options to satisfy a foodie like myself.
With its active community managers, the networking website Wobbe, and a range of social and professional events, Workbar holds promise for connecting people who can benefit each other. I’m looking forward to getting to know others whom I can provide value to and learn from.
It’s my second day here at Workbar Central Square, and I'm eager to experience how this space meets my expectations. Stay tuned for updates!
