Co-working has long since lost it’s reputation as an office that freelancers hire out for short-term projects and is now the hub at the centre of modern digital life. You can find bloggers and researchers alongside CEO’s and office managers as co-working spaces have exploded on to the scene. So here is our list of some of the best in Singapore.
One of the most famous chains of co-working spaces, WeWork have plenty of sofas, cushions, plants and open well-lit spaces. They have over 200 locations, with the most recent one opening at Beach Centre. Taking inspiration from Pinterest design boards, the office spaces are more like a home from home than an office.
This is the ideal space if you want to shut off and work in peace, without any kind of obligation to make nice with the people around you. This minimalist building, with matching furniture, was built ‘for introverts by introverts’ and best of all, they have plenty of space for meetings, conferences and individual offices that offer plenty of privacy.
MOX is a hotspot for creative types and has long been on the radar of many a lifestyle blogger. They have plenty of gadgets too like 3D printers, laser cutters and work stations that have design software.

They also have meeting rooms and even a pantry if you want to make lunch!

The first family friendly working space in Singapore has child-minding facilities as well as learning spaces for young children. They also have different levels depending on the type of privacy needed, including private offices for meetings and conference calls.
