Co-working spaces exist because of the increasing number of millennials — and soon, Gen Zs — who jumped from their 9-to-5s to fulfill a life of freelancing. While it’s difficult to constantly find clients, manage your day-to-day operations and promote yourself as the best supplier, co-working spaces make it all a bit more manageable by making the hustle look more cute and desirable.
It goes without saying, though: not all co-working spaces are made equally. International franchises often have startups (and a few controversies) taking over their whole floors, while smaller co-working spaces take pride in empowering individual workers and freelancing creatives.
Solution Space is one of these co-working spaces. Aside from a great location with tons of food options in the area, it also has very chill atmosphere, highlighted by ’70s-inspired furniture and high-speed internet. It can easily fit on Wes Anderson’s or That ’70s Show’s Pinterest boards.
While not all co-working spaces are the same, you can easily spot these five people in all of them. Here are the people we met during our visit to Solution Space.
