  2. Mic on Mondays | David Kosky

    David Kosky is a co-founder of Work.Life, one of the UK’s largest co-working environments.

    What is Work.Life?

    Work Life is a co-working business, that specialises in working with landlords to animate and activate their buildings.

    How was Work.Life established?

    So we set the business up in 2015, our first space was in Camden. The opportunity we saw was that more and more landlords wanted to co-work in their buildings but still very much investment building driven. And we saw an opportunity to deliver a smaller scale co-working business, an operation to animate and activate buildings but not to over-expose them with investment value concerns.

    What sets Work.Life aside from competition?

    We have a very landlord friendly, strategic property strategy. We take smaller spaces with ground-floor frontage to help animate buildings from the ground floor.

    How does Work.Life create the perfect co-working environment?

    For us, size is a big thing, so actually having smaller spaces allows us to get a very personal feeling in our spaces. It’s all about understanding experience and we’re experienced led; we want people to feel relaxed, at home, welcome in all our spaces, and everything we do from the furniture to the way it’s designed is all done with that in mind.

    What is the future of Work.Life?

    We are continuing to grow, we have spaces in nine locations, and we are also working more and more closely with landlords and bigger businesses, who are all looking to co-working to animate their buildings and really improve the whole experience for their customers or their tenants.
