The Best Of Hong Kong

The demand for co-working spaces in Hong Kong has soared through the roof. Thus, a plethora of new options have sprung up. Co-working spaces offer a more wallet-friendly alternative to the costly rent of offices in the city. It’s not, however, just about the price for some. The shared offices bring together a social aspect, ideal for networking and meeting other aspiring start-up businesses. Amenities are equally as important, with some spaces boasting sun-lit terraces, luxe interior design, and even happy hour bars. Freelancers, start-ups and small businesses adjourn: here are some of the luxury co-working offices to work in.

Banyan Workspace

Slow, eco-conscious design dominates the concept behind luxury co-working office Banyan Workspace. Founded by couple Rasheed and Amy Shroff, the space focuses on green initiatives. It’s hard to imagine this was a former toy maufacturer’s warehouse prior to renovation. Designed by S.Lo Studio, the interiors bear sustainability and comfort from all angles with a contemporary-driven aesthetic. Decked with eucalyptus and paulownia wood (donned for its air purifying healing benefits), green velvet curtains and parquet floors at the in-house library, the office shouts exclusivity. Plus, there are harbor views from the desks. Banyan Workspace’s corporate social responsibility program donates two percent of income from members towards NGO charities. 

Suite 1204, Eastern Harbour Centre, 28 Hoi Chak Street, Quarry Bay, 2159-5599. Open Monday to Friday 9:00am to 6:00pm.

The interiors are developed by architectural studio Bean Buro. There’s a laid-back ambience with high ceilings and over 30,000 square feet of decadent décor and sculptural delights.
