A chain of coworking spaces turns neglected telephone booths into productive spaces

Extensive list of well-lit offices with inspiring artwork on the walls, endless networking opportunities and hectolitres of single-origin coffee became a standard for coworking chains. In order to revamp its cutting edge, Bar Works, a NY-based co-working chain with venues opening in Manhattan, San Francisco and London, decided to reimagine its “work space with vibe” motto by transforming old telephone boxes into Pod Works.

Every pod will be equipped with a printer, scanner, wireless mouse, 25-inch screen, power bank of plugs and a hot drink machine. For £19.99 a month, entrepreneurs will gain access to any work station at any time of day or night.
