With the self-employed, remote workers, and contract workers on the rise, and more people in regular employment working flexibly, traditional offices are in decline. Many freelancers, small companies, and more are choosing to use co-working spaces over private offices for a gamut of reasons. The only downside is many of these shared office spaces can come at a hefty price.
If you’re loving the idea of a co-working space, but can’t help wince at the price, allow us to introduce you to the latest co-working space in Hong Kong, HK Works.
Combining the benefits of a co-working space and your own private office, HK Works offers both the flexibility and convenience of a co-working space, as well as the lower cost and privacy of regular, bare-shell office space. With this ideal combination, HK Works’ offices are great for freelancers, start-ups, and growing companies alike.

Location, Location, Location
HK Works has cleverly positioned itself just five minutes away from Wong Chuk Hang’s MTR station, a short, ten-minute train ride away from Admiralty. Previously an industrial district, Wong Chuk Hang is now poised to be Hong Kong’s next cultural hotbed. The hip neighbourhood is home to a bustling art scene, with a number of new galleries and numerous stunning murals from 2017’s homegrown street art festival, HKWalls, scattered around the district.
What’s more, you can order from a range of small eateries around the area and have it delivered straight to your doorstep. If you fancy getting some fresh air, there are also plenty of under-the-radar cafés where you can grab coffee from. Breathtaking green mountain views at close proximity to the heart of Hong Kong also add to the area’s charm. What more could you want?
