Co-Working Spaces: An Interview with Borough Studios

As of October last year there were 157 co-working spaces in London and that number has almost certainly risen since. Why are these spaces becoming so popular? Part of the phenomenon is the flexibility of use that many of these spaces offer as we're seeing more co-working spaces host live events alongside their standard operation. Cicely Lawson sat down with Charlie Chadd, the Managing Director of Borough Studios, the co-working space where Hire Space currently operates, to find out more.
