Business is booming
By 2030, it is predicted that 30% of all commercial real estate will be flexible workspace while flexible working will be worth AUD 14,5 trillion+ to the economies of 16 leading countries that include Australia.
The flexible workspace sector has reached a tipping point. Following many years of continuous growth, global demand for temporary offices, meeting rooms and coworking areas is set to explode. The structural shift towards people needing a safe, secure, and quiet place to work away from home, that feel “homey and private”, as well as being able to connect and socialize at the same time.

OpenDesk’s goal was to create this space so one would not have to travel far to the main office HQ, such as in repurposed abandoned retail shops in city centres. Each space will have a customised layout based on its size and architecture, allowing an efficient layout that is pleasing and spacious, with breathing spaces, café, soft seating, and wide corridors.
