For many start-ups, freelancers, remote workers and others, it's possible to successfully operate out of a home environment, but it's much more preferable to set up in co-working offices. These workspaces tend to offer flexibility, better work-life balance, fewer distractions and the opportunity to connect and collaborate with many like-minded individuals, all without committing to the burden of owning or renting a business space full-time.

With this in mind, there are now a number of co-working spaces that strive to offer more than just desk space by putting an emphasis on fostering ideation, wellness and entrepreneurship.

In order to offset the high costs of rental spaces, opportunistic retail stores, churches, cafes and yoga studios are now opening their doors as unconventional co-working spaces.
