They believe in intimate spaces, tight-knit communities and, most of all, enjoying every day you spend in the office. So whether you are a freelancer, growing business, or a global corporate, Work.Life has a home for you. Their main goal is to support their members however they can so their team of membership managers are there in person to deliver a personal service and make sure you have all the essentials taken care of so you can focus on your business. Each of the workspaces features a mix of bright private offices (for teams of 2-60) and creative hot desking space with fully stacked shared kitchens and private phone booths. Every member benefits from the essentials (super-fast 200mb ninja wifi, free meeting rooms and printing) as well as all of the perks to keep your team looking forward to coming to the office.

This is an excellent place to come into work everyday. Luke and Emma are a credit to the positive work environment the Work.Life brand prides itself on. Multiple events each week from fitness sessions to free pizza make for a lot of fun and create great value for money.
While we were waiting for our office to open, in the same building, both Emma and Luke were very accommodating to our needs, both for the business and personal well being. With offering many after work activities, you feel it's place to enjoy not endure. :)
When you move to a new city, especially when you work for yourself, it can take a while to make meaningful connections with people. But thanks to Work.Life Reading, I felt at home from the start. Great working environment, fantastic community, and genuinely excellent coffee!
Actually love coming into the office! Agile working environments at it's best!! Not to mention the Work Life team Emma & Luke can't do enough for you. Game changers
Nice design, fun atmosphere, and great people. Emma and Luke have been extremely helpful and accommodating for our business. Highly recommend!
