We’re a community sharing amenities, relationships, space, and ideas.
A CONCEPT BOTH TIMELY AND TIMELESS
When our ancestors built cities, they used to build them around the village greens, the commons — an open, approachable space to meet and engage with neighbors.
This common space often served as public grassland for grazing cattle and other stock, as well as a meeting place for community gatherings.
While we don't quite graze cattle anymore, we do think it’s time to rethink workspace around this timeless concept of sharing resources to the benefit of all.
We aim to capture this spirit of bringing people together in what's always been a fundamental part of the urban landscape.
