With most of us continuing to be working from home on a regular basis, sometimes we may feel like we need a little change in atmosphere. Not everyone has the luxury of creating a specifically designated workspace at home, and even if they do, sometimes a change of environment is necessary to stay motivated and inspired. 

That being said, the option of heading to a co-working space could be the perfect solution. As co-working spaces across Cairo are gradually re-opening – whilst taking all the necessary precautionary measures against COVID-19 – now may be a great time to make use of them.

Co-working spaces offer a comfortable work-like environment in which one can go and make use of individually or with a friend or two. The following examples of co-working spaces are three wonderful places that offer a unique atmosphere perfectly designed to get anyone back into ‘work-mode’. 

The Bunker

The Bunker is a wonderful co-working space that can be found tucked away in the quiet little neighborhood of Almazah in Heliopolis. The venue itself is spacious and offers various little work stations one can choose from. 

According to their Facebook page, The Bunker describes itself as being “a creative work-hub, created to provide the perfect environment for; freelancers, entrepreneurs, startups, students, readers, etc.”

That being said, this co-working space is efficiently designed to both have units being separate and sectioned off from one another, while still ultimately having an open office communal vibe.  

The Bunker offers a tasteful environment with sleek, fun and contemporary design elements that will be sure to keep customers engaged. In addition to this, they also offer the choice between three types of packages; quarter day (EGP 50), half day (EGP 75) and full day (EGP 95) – coffee and snacks included.

Having been founded in 2012, Al Maqarr has quickly grown to establish itself as one of Cairo’s best co-working spaces and environment. This particular co-working space has branched out to have venues in Heliopolis, New Cairo, downtown Cairo and even in el Gouna. 

Most recently, they have also re-vamped their brand and gone from Al Maqarr to simply MQR. On their Facebook page, they state that “co-working is a style of work through which different people with different mentalities and ideas work together in one place. This place has all the facilities they need; whether the space itself which is designed to suit their needs, or the real productive environment that is provided to innovate and collaborate.”

Having been initially established to mainly serve start-ups, MQR has become known as one of the best environments spearheading the move towards innovative and different work practices. MQR offers the choice between private meeting rooms or designated desks, or even just enjoying the general space alongside fellow freelancers or people working from home seeking to change environment.
