As traditional corporate offices are dwindling, the rise of cool, innovative and community-oriented working spaces like the Roco, based in Sheffield, are offering something that will stand the test of time.
"We see an exciting future where creative people use their skills and imaginations to design products and services that provide a positive and sustainable social impact," the team explains on how it's utilizing and repurposesing Grade II listed houses. "We want to make it easy for people to make positive choices about the kind of products and services they buy and we believe creativity is at the heart of offering engaging and exciting ways to do that." Put it simply, as they say, it's a work-and-play space that has everything you might need to sustain your big idea including a deli, a gallery, a cafe-slash-bar, studio, office and more.
The Roco is currently looking for investors in their unique community share issue.
