To anyone who can transition to freelancing or nomadic working, a co-working space is a gift. It is basically an office without the pressure of having a corporation watch your back.
But, any shared office has certain non-negotiables that missing one aspect is a deal-breaker. These are, including but not limited to:
- Stable, high-speed internet connection
- Ergonomic furniture
- Assistant services
- IT support
Having these in mind, if you are looking for a co-working space in Kuala Lumpur, here are 10 places that The Beat Asia can recommend because they will get the little worker bee in you humming.
Common Ground’s co-working spaces in KL are well-known among the nomadic workers in the city, and for good reason. All their offices are conducive to productivity and offer various zones that cater to different working situations. They are open to individuals and enterprises.
WORQ has a particular approach to a shared office. They want to promote the social aspect of working with other people in different industries. They know the value of human connection in the gig economy. That is why you will feel a certain familiar spirit in their spaces. The interior design is not bad, too.
Luxury is a priority at Colony’s spaces. Even from their pictures, their offices are overflowing with decadence, from the plush sofas and carpeted zones to outdoor spaces that would go well with a fine dining establishment. It is a little hard to believe that this is an office, as opposed to a really posh membership club.
Most of the time, and for most nomad workers, all you need is a desk, a stable internet connection, and a comfortable desk. That is Triune for you, a co-working space that hits all the basic spots. But, this company is determined to affect some social changes through entrepreneurship.
Location: Triune, BO1-A-09, Pillar 12, Menara 2, KL Eco City, Jalan Bangsar
Servcorp has excellent services that all that is remaining for you is to get your work done. Their IT services are S-Tier beyond anyone in Malaysia, maybe even in Southeast Asia. They are their own internet service provider, the on-site IT support is second to none, and they have cubicles with plush seats. It is like being in a first-class airport lounge, but there is no limit to your stay.
Location: Servcorp, Level 33, Ilham Tower, No. 8, Jalan Binjai, Kuala Lumpur 50450 / Level 23, Nu Tower 2, Jalan Tun Sambanthan, KL Sentral, Kuala Lumpur 50470
Co-labs in Naza Tower is unmistakable as a co-working space. The shared spaces, long desks, and booths where anyone can find a suitable place to conduct business. But, they do not shy away from conducting events during special working days to keep the vibes in the place light and collaborative.
Location: Co-labs Coworking, Level 25, Naza Tower, Platinum Park, 10, Persiaran KLCC
Lemon Treehouse intends to inject fun in working, and who can blame them? Your mind is much more engaged when playing, and maybe, that will produce better results. With plenty of seats, sofas, and beanies, you can get comfortable any way you want at this space.
Location: Lemon Treehouse, Unit 3A-06, Tower A, Vertical Business Suite, Bangsar South City, No. 8, Jalan Kerinchi
Beauty inspires...something. But, it definitely inspires. Komune understands that more any other co-working space, having built minimalist but stimulating working zones such as single and shared desks, private offices, and others. “Collaborative and communal” is how Komune describes themselves, and we agree.
There is a neon sign within MOX Malaysia that says “Co-Making Space.” It would be so out of place, if MOX was not such a productivity-inducing place. There is a strong Scandinavian inspiration in the interior design, but IKEA this is not. It just shows that the creators of this place have a strong sense of what the modern, nomadic worker needs.
Location: MOX, Sunway Putra Mall Level 4, 100 Jalan Putra
When someone promises a “wellness infused workspace,” it can be a little hard to believe. But, DOJO does it right. With plenty of light, understated interiors, and flexible working rates, working here frees up your mind and senses to focus on the tasks at hand. That is rare in a sea of shared offices that only offer chairs and desks.
Location: DOJO, Level 1, Menara Amplewest, 6 Jalan P. Ramlee
