Our Dedicated Desks have been created for individuals and small organizations that want the benefits of having their own dedicated workspace, without the overhead of a multi-year lease, and ongoing costs for things like: internet, utilities, cleaning and coffee. But the main advantage of your Dedicated Desk is the opportunity to foster stronger working relationships with your peers in the space.

Your desk is your own to store anything you need,and there is no need to clear it out every night, so settle in and stay awhile.

With a dedicated desks you have access to all of the shared space in the Compound you call home and conference rooms are available on a first-come, first-served advanced-booking basis.


Dedicated Desks are available to you 24/7/365.


Choose your preferred location in any of our compounds. Prices vary depending on market rates of the chosen location.

What is the difference between a Hot Desk, Dedicated Desk and Private Office?

A Hot Desk is a shared workspace in a common area. You are not required to book in advance, and you can come and go as you please, using any desk that is available. Providing they are pre-booked, Conference Rooms are available to Hot Desk users at a rate of $25/hr.

A Dedicated Desk is assigned specifically to you. You will not share it with other Communo members, unless you wish to do so, and you are able to store your personal belongings overnight. Dedicated Desks have free access to Conference Rooms, provided they are booked in advance.

Private Offices are fully enclosed, lockable, spaces intended for teams of 1-10 people. Your company can add more offices as you grow, and you can potentially work with Vibe Directors to design/develop custom spaces for your specific needs. Again, you will receive free access to Conference Rooms, providing they are pre-booked.
