So get your smile on and set the mood for a productive day filled with smart decisions.

Get Out of that “Home-Cave”

This your chance to get out of that home-office that tends to leave you feeling unproductive and antisocial, every day. We say, ditch the cave and come work in one of our creative open spaces where you’ll be surrounded by motivated and creative individuals like yourself. Because why go through writer’s block alone when you don’t have to? Don’t worry though – working in a shared space doesn’t mean sacrificing your privacy. You can always retreat to one of our phonebooths when you need your solo time.




Enjoy Quality Coffee at a Flat Rate of…Zero

Time to say goodbye to Starbucks, Balzac, and all other commercial coffee houses around the ‘hood. Who needs that when you’ve got home-brewed coffee and fresh in-house cappuccino’s on the house, all day long?!



You’ll Never Lunch Alone

No more solo lunching…ever. Every day at Mindspace is a new opportunity to dine with a once-stranger and fellow member of the community. On Wednesday’s we host a communal ‘Salad Day,’ and once a month we urge you to make-a-new-friend over a ‘Blind-Lunch.’ Then we’ve got weekly Happy Hours where we bring together members for themed-meals over delicacies like Vietnamese rolls or homemade lasagna. We share our meals like a real family would. And there’s no going back.



Mindspace is Doppelganger Galore!

You will start to find striking resemblances between Mindspace members and famous multi-billionaires. Who knows if this resemblance won’t bring him the best of luck…one day.

The Limits of ‘Normal’ Working will be Stretched

Walking past the many offices lining our halls, you will realize that some stretch the limits of what is ‘normal’ or standard in the 21st century. For some, work can be more creative, entertaining, and out of this world.




Free Advice? Don’t Mind if I Do!

In the community, the more you give, the more you receive. Mindspacers love to share and spread their knowledge and how-to – expect to be consulted, advised, and supported by your peers. You may even be dragged in for new-product-testing and and be given a voice to express your opinion. Doesn’t sound too bad, does it?

The Effects of Cohabitation

You just may start to notice yourself morphing into, or growing a lot more similar to, one of your peers. But don’t worry, it’s normal in a ‘co-habitative’ environment to develop imitative behaviors. So when several people from different companies (without prior arrangement) show up wearing identical happy socks – don’t be startled – it happens often that people unknowingly match their outfits.
