Bar Works recently leased 15 of the UK's old telephone booths as part of its plan to create a network of tiny offices. With more consumers working remotely, there is a growing need for private spaces that can be used as temporary offices. Bar Works is catering to this growing demographic by making use of the world's most iconic telephone booths.

Bar Works' new plan involves converting old telephone booths in Leeds, London and Edinburgh into fully functional work spaces. Each booth will be equipped with WiFi access, a 25-inch monitor, a printer, a scanner, a wireless mouse and a plug powerbank. There will even be a hot drinks machine inside the booth so workers can enjoy a fresh cup of coffee anytime. To access the booths, workers will have to sign up for the company's 'Pod Works' subscription service. This will give them access to any booth at any point during the day or night.

The new system demonstrates the growing need for co-working spaces and some of the creative ways companies can accommodate these types of workers.
