Private office space
Many professionals, business owners, and freelancers have found comfort and peace by working in inspiring, friendly, and fun environments in coworking spaces that have popped up across NYC. The inspiring architecture, quality furnishing, décor, and warm ambiance make it possible for businesses working at coworking spaces to become more innovative and productive.
Even with all of the benefits of a collaborative environment, it's nice to have an option of having private office space within the coworking space. The aim of the private space is not to isolate a business from others that are working within the coworking environment. The coworking areas are fitted with a communal kitchen, shared amenities, couches and a single front reception area. This means that those that opt for a private office space within the coworking spaces will still be mingling with the rest of businesses during the course of the day.
There are many reasons that businesses decide to pick a private office within a coworking space. Here are some of them.
A little privacy works magic
Every one of us has those tense moments when we like getting away from the crowd and getting composed before coming back. This is not just for personal reasons. You may want some space to ponder something that is challenging you, take stock of your business, or get to understand an important offer and determine if it will be best for your business in the long run.
This is the reason behind small offices for mid-level management in the traditional corporate environment or the corner office for executives. In those rooms, the senior managers can reflect and engage their thoughts before coming up with a solution.
Unlike the traditional corporate structure where an office is reserved for those high up the corporate ladder, the private office in a coworking space environment is accessible to anyone that needs some privacy. Your reasons for taking a private office can vary from discussing personal matters, guarding sensitive information, the love of silence, or just to be alone whenever you feel like it.
Get rid of distractions
Humans are inherently social. Unfortunately, some of them are more social than others. For this group, anything close by can distract them from doing their work. Socialization helps in promoting ideas and creating the warmth necessary to keep you motivated. However, if it goes to a point where it prevents productivity, a private office is the best solution.
Create a culture of comfort
Some people find comfort in getting their private space within the coworking space. It enables them to work comfortably and motivates them to boost their productivity. There are also people who love jumping back and forth. Sometimes they enjoy being at a hot-desk, but at other times, they are back in their private office working hard.
The private offices in coworking spaces are made in such a way that they are comfortable in terms of ergonomics and design so that they provide ultimate comfort and satisfy the needs of everyone in the communal workspace. In the traditional corporate environment, the executive class is always far removed from the rest of the workers making them hard to approach and collaborate with everyone else. At coworking spaces, occupants of private offices are easily accessible and mingle with everyone.
As a business expands, there are people that find that the desk area within which they're working is too small. They may want to talk to clients one-on-one or have several files and other private documents they can't keep in the cloud. The private office space provides them with the extra space to hold private meetings as well as sensitive paperwork.
Incubating private ideas
It's not surprising to find competing firms that are going head to head working in the same shared space. Any of the firms may want to keep new information private so that the competition does not gain a competitive advantage. A private office provides an opportunity to incubate those solutions until such a time that they will be released to the market. This also applies to businesses that are working on sensitive materials that should not be viewed. A private office hides them from public eyes.
The need to work on team projects
There are projects that call for the whole team to put their heads together and work out a solution. This may not be possible in a typical coworking space due to the distraction from others and the fact that large tables or conference rooms may already be occupied. A private office comes in handy for these situations so that everyone can come together in their own private space and discuss important projects.
A private office may be a little more expensive than the common coworking areas. However, it's still much less expensive than the traditional office space. You do not incur the costs of furnishing the office, partitioning of buying services such as fast WiFi, paying for heat/AC, staffing a reception area, among other things you need to do in a traditional office space.
