Renting or leasing your own office may sound like an ideal scenario, but it will typically come with a big price tag. Fortunately, the concept of shared working spaces has gained momentum in recent years offering businesses and entrepreneurs a cheaper and more convenient alternative to workspace solutions. These part-time office rentals, such as executive suites, come fully furnished and are outfitted with all the essential tools that are required to run a successful business. With growing popularity and demand for flexible working solutions, new and improved ideas continue to sprout and gain traction. One of the most popular ideas that is continuing to gain popularity is shared workspaces. However, most people do not fully understand this concept so let’s delve deeper.

What is Shared Working Spaces?

Shared working spaces, sometimes referred to as Coworking offices, are collaborative work environments that take many forms and are used by businesses and entrepreneurs in different work environments. While some are actual physical spaces with office furniture and amenities such as executive suites, others only exist virtually. Some forms of shared working spaces involve more than one person using the service at a time while other forms involve a space shared by many people at varying times.

Different Types of Shared Offices


This type of shared working space is also referred to as Coworking spaces. These are spaces created in a physical office to give employees the ability to work more closely and collaborate. This physically collaborative shared working space has gained popularity around the country particularly among start-ups. It offers start-ups a means to have a presentable office space without the complexities of establishing one on their own.


In this type of shared workspace, spaces are shared by multiple people and businesses but used on individual arrangements. It is more of a timeshare for office space as opposed to vacation rentals. In this setup, many different people can use the space for different purposes and at different times. This option is ideal for employees who work remotely and who want to get a quiet and convenient place to work from out of the house.


As the name suggests, this is not a physical space but rather virtual. This form of shared workspace includes tools and environments used by virtual workers to work together from different locations but in real time. They can take the form of virtual meetings, videos, whiteboards and any other real-time collaborative virtual space.


This is another variation of shared working space involving a virtual environment where employees and colleagues can interact and share information. Although the space is collaborative, it is not used in group form. Instead, it is managed, used and shared on individual basis. A good example is that of a virtually shared spreadsheet such as those provided on Google Drive.

Your rental also comes with fully qualified staff to help you with all your administrative needs at no extra costs.

  • Networking Opportunities: A number of like-minded individuals will be sharing the office space, providing you with an excellent opportunity to network. You may come across eager entrepreneurs who are willing to share business strategies or even connect you with potential clients.
  • Focus on Your Business: Owning your own office space comes with a set of responsibilities that will usually rest on your shoulders. A part-time office rental will give you peace of mind when it comes to building maintenance, staff training, and additional expenses. Instead of worrying about office logistics, you can channel your focus on your clients and business operations.

  • I can’t go with any other choice...

    When I started my engineering business 4 years ago, I was looking for a space where it’s cost effective and at a prime location. It was a challenge! This is the best I could find, close to my home so the driving was faster, also the reception is exceptionally good. When you walk in the office, the welcoming atmosphere, the options I have here, I can’t go with any other choice.

With Officescape, you get the advantage of amazing office space, professional staff to greet your clients, and not worrying about unnecessary procedures.

  • It’s very professional and they don’t even know that its not our office!

    We started using Officescape primarily because we needed an address for mailing purposes and for our product. I use them for meeting rooms as well, when I bring my buyers in. It’s very professional and they don’t even know that that is not our Maxell office. It’s important for us to keep our profile image. Having a company in Canada for 16 years, our buyers are coming into our offices all the time, we still needed a space to have that place for our buyers to come visit us and vice versa.

    I chose Officescape because the staff are really friendly, I found them really helpful and really resourceful. I also find the building to be really clean and really bright, I like some of the architectural design. They always greet my clients very friendly, always offer them coffee, tea, water and always say goodbye to them when they leave. My experience at Officescape has been very positive!
