Coworking space Huckletree opened its first location on Dublin’s Pearse Street around two years ago with the simple goal of challenging traditional office space and bringing in professionals from the tech and entrepreneurship world.
Since then, coworking has had a serious moment in Dublin, In fact, providers in the city account for 1.1 million square feet of space, which is expected to continue growing.
Now, Huckletree D2 has grown to host a community of 50 teams from all corners of the workforce, but after the fallout of WeWork’s IPO plans, Huckletree felt like it was time for another transformation.
That is why the operator announced Huckletree Places for established teams. The new venture caters to large teams who have outgrown the company’s spaces, putting them into their own office with curated design that includes more privacy, access to a network of like minded members, investors and advisors.
“I know from the support and stability that we’ve been able to afford our members, that the value is tangible, and very much real,” said Andrew Lynch, Huckletree’s co-founder. “While the WeWork effect may create natural market shifts, it is not symptomatic of a sector built on sand. In fact, I believe in the importance of shared space to drive shared outcomes more than I ever have before.”
