THE GREAT ROOM EXPERIENCE

Designed to inspire

coworking space - design

Known for our hospitality-inspired design and drawing inspiration from the best hotel lobbies, we create beautiful and highly functional spaces that are conducive for ideas and innovation to thrive. The flattering lighting, decor, rich colour palette and furnishings make you feel you are somewhere special, and that you are someone special.

No Monday Blues

coworking space - no monday blues

With touches of hospitality, we change the way you feel about work. Banish Monday blues as we kick off the week with Monday Breakfast Club, a sumptuous breakfast gathering where members exchange ideas over a fresh cuppa brewed by our in-house barista. In the evening, a turndown cart comes round with warm cookies and hot chocolate, all in bid to end Monday on a sweet note.

Like-minded Community

coworking space - like minded community

Great design attracts a like-minded community and our community is the beating heart of The Great Room. We are a community of leading entrepreneurs, ‘grown up’ startups and corporates, every member contributes to an environment that is open, inspiring and dynamic.
