You might assume that the social and collaborative nature of coworking spaces would make it the realm of the extravert. While this may be true in some coworking spaces, the culture and design of Platypus makes it a haven for introverts as well. Give a large percentage of our members are introverts, we must be getting something right!
If you’re an introvert (or just prefer a quiet space to work), let’s check out why Platypus Coworking might be the right choice for you:
As introverts, we often prefer to work in spaces where we can focus with minimal distractions. We have a range of spaces where you can work comfortably. If you are feeling somewhat social or simply want others nearby, you can work at one of our many open plan desks. If you are looking for a private space, you can book one of our offices, a meeting space or phone room.
Low Noise Levels
Many of us can be sensitive to noise and find it difficult to concentrate in loud or chaotic environments. At Platypus Coworking you’ll find our space to be quiet and calm, with minimal background noise.
Flexibility to Match Your Needs
As introverts we often have days and times when we feel more inclined to socialise, and others when we prefer to be alone. For example: we might feel more alert and engaged at the start of the week and prefer to be around others; but come Friday, we are ready to retreat. Platypus Coworking understands this, that is why we give you flexibility in when you come in and what space you want to work in. That way you can mix and match to meet your needs.
Low-key Social Interactions
While attending large networking events might scare the pants off some of us, we still value social interaction. At Platypus Coworking we provide a comfortable and low-pressure environment to socialise and collaborate. Many of our conversations kick off over lunch in the kitchen, at our communal jigsaw or down at our favourite local coffee shop. The vibe here is open and friendly, so when you are ready to step out of your bubble, there is usually someone around to have a chat.
Natural Light and Greenery
Some of us are sensitive to sensory stimuli. Exposure to natural light has been shown to reduce stress and improve mood, while being surrounded by plants and other greenery can help to create a sense of calm and relaxation. If you pop in and see us, you’ll find that we’ve thoughtfully designed our workspace with large windows and plenty of plant life.
