For your remote work inspiration.
Europe is home to an incredibly vibrant community of coworking spaces. In the last decade, the entrepreneurial wave that swept across the continent created a demand for flexible, affordable and community-centric work environments.
Coworking spaces tick all the boxes for freelancers and modern teams. In particular, they offer teams the flexibility to expand quickly and connect with other like-minded entrepreneurs. There are currently more than 2500 coworking spaces throughout Europe–a figure that continues to grow year after year!
After browsing hundreds of coworking spaces for our latest project, we selected our favourites in Europe right now.

Volumes (Paris, France)
Located in the heart of Paris is Volumes. The team at Volumes offers one of the most innovative concepts of coworking we’ve seen. It includes coworking, a Makers space, and a food lab. With the fundamental value being innovation, each of the three branches intertwines to create a truly special community.
We love that Volumes boasts large desk space with plenty of natural light and that it can accommodate small and large teams alike. Ready to bring your designs to life? Makers Space is an onsite workshop fully equipped with a laser cutter, milling machine and a 3D printer. Last but not least, Volumes is home to a food lab for food startups, gastronomy professionals, and amateurs to experiment with various culinary approaches.
The result of these three spaces is a wonderfully productive environment with a true sense of community.
Perfect for: The food lab and a diverse community of innovators.
Work in Progress (Split, Croatia)
Work in Progress is a coworking space that embodies the concept that your personal and professional life is constantly a ‘work in progress’. We value the idea that things constantly need to be tweaked and adapted. This beachside oasis was certainly built with entrepreneurs in mind. The open space allows for teams to constantly iterate their ideas until they reach perfection. Its 300m2 space is tastefully designed to host up to 70 remote workers, plus there are call booths and a spacious conference room. It’s the largest coworking space in Split and attracts top entrepreneurs from all over the world.

Poligon Creative Center (Ljubljana, Slovenia)
Formerly a tobacco processing factory, Poligon Creative Center is Slovenia’s premier coworking space. Located in the country’s capital, Ljubljana, it is the country’s oldest as well as largest coworking space. The space itself serves as a platform for self-employed professionals working in the field of creative economies, culture and social entrepreneurship. Apart from a Maker’s studio it also houses a photography studio as well as a fully-stocked bar, for those extra-long days at the office!
Perfect for: A spacious workspace and a top-quality bar.
Work.Life (London, United Kingdom)
With 4 spaces strategically located around London, Work.Life is focused on creating intimate coworking spaces to provide the most convenient service to its community. Each of their spaces in London come with a variety of options from ‘hot desks’ to private offices; you are free to spend as much or as little time there (you can pay by the hour!) to make the logistics of your workday run smoothly.
Perfect for: Making London a more convenient place to work.
Bonus: Kantoor Karavaan (Anywhere)
Kantoor Karavan’s take on coworking is one we’ve never seen before, which is why we had to include it; coworking reimagined in a caravan. Each caravan includes wifi, a coffee machine, desk space, electricity and everything else you need to get your work done. Together with your fully mobile office, the wilderness becomes your new office space and you can choose your destination for the day. On top of flexible locations, meals and workshops on outdoor living can also be organised. Have a chat with the Kantoor Karavaan team and you could soon be on your way into the wild!
Perfect for: Working in the great outdoors.
