It is not just the interior, desktop, or desk chair that will build the working ambiance. The social community also plays a significant role. Generally, it is difficult for employees who travel frequently or don’t have permanent working space to create that ambiance. Most of them use cafes, restaurants, and co-working spaces.
What is a co-working space?
In the co-working concept, people from different firms and startups share a common workspace. Thus it is cost-effective as they share infrastructure and other facilities. It also helps to create an effective social community. In Chennai, places like Hive, Workafellas, and Two Trees offer such co-work spaces.
People who want a calm and serene ambiance for short-time work can choose ritzy cafes like Amethyst, Starbucks, and Swiss hustle in Chennai. These cafes won’t provide you with the office-like infrastructure but is a good option for an hour or two of quality work time.

Also, these are available in monthly as well as weekly rentals.
