What does it mean to be a coworker at Halkin?

    March 27, 2019

    It’s easy to see why coworking is so popular. Cost-effective and convenient, it’s the perfect solution for solopreneurs and small businesses who just don’t need a private space. But with so many coworking operators out there and with so many options to choose from, people often ask us: What makes Halkin so special?

    To answer the question, we commissioned brand designer, photographer and all-round creative extraordinaire, Azzurra Visaggio, to produce a selection of illustrations around what it means to be a coworker at Halkin.

    We invited her to spend the day in our Paris Gardens coworking space to get a real feel for the atmosphere.

    …Here she is working in the quiet ‘nook’ area!

    You’ll see the illustration in its entirety above and a nine-piece breakdown of it below.

    Let’s take a closer look…

     

    1. Free coffee

     

    Other hot beverages are available, of course. And for free, we might add. We understand that for many people, the working say starts with a caffeine kick.

    That’s we provide a range of hot drinks on the house for all of our members throughout the day. We also have plenty of options for those on a caffeine hiatus – peppermint, lemon and ginger; the list goes on.

    4. Locations 

     

    One of the best things about a Halkin coworking membership is that you have the option to work from three of our five central London locations: Monument, Southwark and Watford. Sometimes it’s just nice to mix it up a bit.

    7.  Views + terrace

     

    As the majority of our coworking buildings are situated in central London, you’ll benefit from fantastic views of famous London landmarks such as Tower Bridge and The Shard. Check out the sunset snapped by Matt, our Head of Marketing from our roof terrace at Monument.
