If you’re a fan of remote work like we are here at Inventshift, you’ll know that finding a gorgeous coworking space is on your list of priorities.
Besides the usual array of practical facilities such as fast wifi, comfortable seating and access to refreshments, there’s something about working in a beautiful setting that can make you super productive and take your mindset to the next level.
We’ve been fortunate enough to have personally experienced most of these on the list, so we know how gorgeous these co-working spaces are.
After all, who wouldn’t want to escape the office cubicle for one of these beauties?
We work offices are in many different countries around the world; including the US, Brazil, Japan, China and India, but we love the London ones - there are nineteen so far, with more to be built.
The spaces are gorgeously designed and most have a games room on offer, phone booths, an outdoor terrace or garden for lunchtime meetings or yoga. You’ll also get free fruit water, freshly brewed coffee, and beer on tap, should you wish to indulge.

There are several IMPACT hubs all over the world; 81 to be exact. There are also 21 in progress, so in the next year or so, expect 100 of these all over the world.
We were lucky enough to work in Impact Hub Amsterdam. This hub is sustainably designed, with a plaza for communal gathering. Their catering partners include Restaurant Freud, a social enterprise who help people with mental health problems. They also develop their very own Impact beer, with a hint of banana and clove.

‘Take your shoes off before you enter’ is Hubud’s policy; and it is this welcome to the fabulous coworking and coliving organisation in Ubud, Bali, that will prepare your senses for the glorious views of the rice fields. You can work away on the beanbags upstairs, at the office desks, or lazing in a hammock in their back garden.
Hubud is not just a space; it’s a community. They host regular nights (their ‘Fuckup’ nights of entrepreneurs that have failed are especially popular), and there’s a cafe too, selling raw food and organic juices and smoothies. A great community with a global feel. If you’re desperate to stay, there’s even an orientation package that will help you settle in to life in Ubud.

Launched in December 2016, Second Home is a unique creative and collaborative space in Lisbon. They also have offices in London, but we’ve explored the Lisbon office and it’s fantastic. One of the most gorgeous features is their plant filled workspace, which allows creatives the chance to soak up all the oxygen and fuel their productivity.
The members programme also offers yoga, a running club, a programme of cultural events and talks, and access to a library full of thought-provoking books.
KoHub describes itself as a ‘tropical coworking space’, and it is indeed just that. Based in Ko Lahnta, Thailand, it offers a ‘family environment’, and is a great place to hang out, work, and meet some interesting people.
It’s a two minute walk to the beach; but there’s rest and relaxation at the hub if you want it. With a lush tropical garden with hammocks, a courtyard and a full restaurant and juice bar, you probably won’t want to leave your office at the end of the day - now who can say that?
With free coffee, tea and one of the fastest wifi speeds in Thailand, it’s no surprise that KoHub is on the list of travelling digital nomads.

Ever worked in an environment like this? No? The bus is a cafe and bar, and the ‘containers’ are available to hire and work from.
The quirky space at Village Underground Lisboa benefits from a recording studio, creative event space and a coffee shop.
It’s home to a host of residents including musicians and other creatives.
