Our Hot Desks service has been created for those who need a flexible workspace, not necessarily a private office or a permanent desk. With a Hot Desk plan you can visit any of our Compounds, grab any open seat in the common areas and start working. A new seat everyday means you’ll have an increased chance of networking with other Communo members as well as collaborating.

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 you, you can come and go as you please and use any desk that is available.

A Dedicated desk is a desk that is assigned specifically to you. You will not share it with other Communo members, unless you wish to and you are able to store your personal belongings overnight. Dedicated Desks have access to conference rooms for free.

A Private office is a fully enclosed loackage space that is intended for teams of 1-10 people. Your company can add more offices as you group and you can potentially work with vibe directors to design/develop custom spaces for your specific needs.
