Although we would love to avoid work at all costs when we’re travelling, sometimes it’s inevitable. And the longer we’re away from the home, the higher the likelihood you will need to tend to some work. For this reason, Whitworth Locke uniquely houses a co-working area for our residents and guests - where you can brainstorm, collaborate, share ideas or work in isolation. Our design-led co-working spaces have been designed to accommodate everything from the Lone Wolf to the Herd of Black Sheep, containing over 80 different spaces each with their own designated power points and complimentary WiFi access.
Whitworth Locke's co-working area acts as an extension of Foundation Coffee House. This means you can enjoy dynamic, independent creative public workspace while enjoying specialty tea, coffee and artisan foods, making it easy to keep yourself fuelled all day long.
Whether you are presenting, conducting a brainstorming or team building session, holding a board meeting or need a quiet place to meet, this space has been intelligently designed to foster creativity and improve focus/productivity.
Our co-working area features a spacious open meeting room, perfect for larger get-togethers and off-site team meetings, that can be reserved on request.
We encourage creative travellers and locals to come together for a variety of reasons and provide a place in which they are comfortable to stay as long as they like.
