10 years of spaces.
The idea was to create something that didn’t really exist yet. We got inspired when one of us was working in a nice place along the canals. There was a good vibe and people were constantly asking whether they could rent a desk or stay for lunch. From that came the idea that work could be a lot more fun, efficient, inspiring and productive when you share it with likeminded others. And that was the start of Spaces. Spaces was founded in 2008 from a need to work in a place that is stimulating, inspiring and fun.
A place to work, meet and connect with likeminded others. Our locations are designed around a social heart and we cherish our community of creators and thinkers. Spaces offers both a functional and inviting interior, with high end design furniture, custom-build work solutions and a warm colour palette. We believe that our beautiful workspaces support and stimulate flexibility and interaction by creating new ways to work and collaborate.

We believe that our beautiful workspaces support and stimulate flexibility and interaction by creating new ways to work and collaborate. We love to share our distinct choice for art. From these artworks, we take inspiration which stimulates new ways of thinking, boosts creativity and helps clear the mind. Spaces launched an Open Call to upcoming visual artists from (or residing in) the Netherlands.
