13 extraordinary coworking spaces in Brussels

De coworkingplek Palazzo in Sint-Gillis.

You used to see only business people or freelancers in these kinds of places. But nowadays, anyone looking for a place to work on the go can use coworking spaces or shared workplaces. They come in all shapes and sizes and their numbers are growing fast, especially in Brussels. Small, local coworking spaces have now been joined by larger, national and international players. From satellite offices on the outskirts to trendy, flexible spaces in the city. Here's a selection of the capital's wide range of flexible office infrastructure.

Are you hybrid working? Then you're following the trend, as hybrid working (home and office) is gaining in popularity. Almost one in three Belgians work remotely at least once a week. Flex-office systems and rising energy prices will have you rushing to a place where you can plug in your laptop, preferably as far away from your own kitchen table as possible. And why not? Because a coworking formula could also be advantageous for your employer: lower electricity, heating and maintenance costs. And goodbye long-term leases!

For most coworking spaces, you pay a fixed daily, weekly or monthly fee. That often includes an annual fee to access the site. Average prices range from between €250/month for a flex space and €400/month for a private office. The more services, the more expensive your shared workplace will be.

Wi-Fi, printer, meeting room, good coffee and good company are part of the basic package. But a great many places offer more. For example, how about day and night access to various coworking spaces in Europe, sports infrastructure or a nap room? Or free legal and financial advice for your start-up? These are our favourite coworking spots in Brussels.

Fosbury & Sons ‘Boitsfort’

Shared workplaces are often situated in unique locations and comfortably equipped with trendy looks. Would you like to receive your business contacts in a luxurious setting, or are you looking for an inspiring space that will push your productivity to unprecedented heights? Set up your laptop in the former headquarters of the CBR cement company. This modernist gem was designed by architectural duo Constantin Brodzki and Marcel Lambrichs. There are private offices as well as meeting rooms, a library, a lobby and a bar. The site covers more than 7,000m² of workspace, with about six hundred available spaces. Some nice perks: a restaurant, fitness room, showers and electric bikes provided by Belgian start-up Cowboy. Operator Fosbury & Sons has two other locations in and around Brussels.

Spaces City Centre and Spaces Tour & Taxis

Flex chain Spaces, part of operator IWG that also operates Regus’ offices, has no fewer than seven locations in Brussels. All the locations are bathed in that typical hip coffee shop vibe, but the branches in the Dansaert district and the Gare Maritime deserve a special mention.

The office is located a stone's throw from Bourse, Brussels’ former Stock Exchange, and is easily accessible by public transport. Ideal for those who like to linger at cafés or restaurants after work, catch a concert or browse the chic boutiques in the Dansaert district.

Spaces Tour & Taxis is located in the Gare Maritime, surely the flagship of contemporary architecture in the capital.

It’s an inspiring setting for all your business projects.

World leader in shared workplaces launched on Avenue Louise

In 1989, Brit Mark Dixon opened Regus' first office in Brussels. The travelling businessman was tired of working from a hotel lobby, café or airport. Dixon opened his first business centre with flexible office infrastructure on the prestigious place Stéphanie off Avenue Louise. The concept caught on. As CEO of the International Workplace Group, the parent group of flex space providers Regus and Spaces, Dixon now offers 3,000 coworking locations worldwide, twenty-one of which are in Brussels. Stéphanie Square is still a coworking space and is operated by SilverSquare.

Regus Brussels West Basilix

No time to commute to the office in the centre of Brussels, or just don’t feel like it? You're not alone. In addition to a better work-life balance, commuting distance is one of the major drivers behind remote working. This makes sense, because by skipping annoying traffic jams, you save time and reduce stress and sick leave. Flex space provider Regus quickly caught on to this trend and is increasingly focusing on flexible office space in suburbs and provincial cities.

Regus Brussels West Basilix is located near the E40 motorway exit, on a major thoroughfare to the city centre and close to Brussels’ Ring Road. In addition, the site is well-served by public transport. Berchem-Sainte-Agathe station is only a three-minute walk away.

Ladies-only coworking spots

Internationally, pioneers for ladies-only workspaces such as The Wing (now part of the International Workplace Group) and The Assembly had to close their doors, but that doesn’t mean that the demand for exclusively female (shared) workplaces has diminished! Brussels has three coworking spaces that are exclusively for women. Womanly (Watermael-Boitsfort), Womade (Brussels) and The Urban Women (Saint-Gilles) are more than just Instagram-worthy workplaces in various pastel hues where make-up bags and babies are welcome. Female members can also access coaching, training, workshops and various networking opportunities with the other entrepreneurial women who use the spaces.
