Some coworking spaces are pretty, and some of them are techie. Distrii is an integrated smart workspace and office solutions provider who can give you a taste of what the future of coworking spaces will be like.

The Hive gives coworking a cheerful and informal spin perfect for artists and anyone who enjoys craftwork. Their Lavender branch even has a full-sized photography studio and a workshop decked with 3D printers, laser cutters, woodworking tools and etc.
The Work Project
If you love innovative architecture and like coworking spaces for their perks, you will enjoy your stay at the Work Project.

They also have various brand partners all over the world, which allows them to offer their members special privileges in terms of dining, health and wellness, services, and travel.

Unlike most coworking spaces, they also have a “member’s relationship manager” to make sure your needs are well taken care of at any point during your stay. Members also have access to free-flowing Papa Palheta coffee all-day so one can never go without their caffeine fix. With these luxuries, their membership prices are higher than what you would normally see form coworking spaces, which might make them an option for those with large budgets looking for the premium coworking experience.
