Spaces is a creative work environment with a unique entrepreneurial spirit. Their dynamic
workspaces help you think, create and collaborate while making sure you feel welcome.

They believe work is about people and ideas. Technology has created a modern economy
driven by empowered individuals. This informs the way they develop inspiring workspaces; with a love for design, and where their energetic team takes care of all of the details so you can focus on developing your next big idea.

Last October 4, 2018, International Workplace Group (IWG) launched the flagship property of Spaces at the World Plaza in Bonifacio Global City. In conjunction with its 10th anniversary this October 2018, Spaces saw a grand Philippine launch event that welcomed the metro’s top business owners, startup executives, creative entrepreneurs, and media. Spaces is now formally open to serve the Philippines’ growing community that prefers flexible, creative workspace.

Situated right at the center of the bustling business hub, Spaces sits atop the World
Plaza Building in 5th Avenue, welcoming its collaborative tenants with a warm, free-
spirited, business-casual vibe in its naturally-lit penthouse location. Spaces is a property
of more than 800 square meters with floor-to-ceiling windows. It has 477 well-designed
individual workstations, meeting pods, private rooms, phone booths, and an in-house
Little Flour Café. The total workspace area is about 3,200 square meters.

Spaces Country Head Lars Wittig said, “Having been built on the idea that success
breeds success, Spaces is the choice of the workspace where the power to break barriers
is right within you, as our on-site community management team meets every need you
can possibly imagine, freeing you to set your ideas on fire as you operate your
business. There is little need to keep an after-six calendar. In Spaces, we encourage
the millennials to seek the advice of the masters and for these seasoned practitioners to
look at the up and coming generation as their partners. For the past ten years, Spaces
has inspired corporate shakers, business nomads, freelancers, energetic entrepreneurs,
international workers, mobile movers, project teams, start-ups and well-established
companies.”

Hailing from Amsterdam, Spaces is the pioneer in providing creative workspaces with a
unique entrepreneurial spirit. In its ten-year history, Spaces has played both host and
home to a large community of business leaders that have met, connected, and learned
from each other.

A study conducted by IWG revealed that in the Philippines, business competitiveness
improves by 94% as well as productivity by 93%, with flexible work arrangements. Wittig
added, “Spaces will be the connector. And to be an effective one, we have to spearhead
community-building that goes beyond comfort and convenience. We have to be at the

forefront of uniting these businesses to support their creation of an inclusive ecosystem
and make it more viable.”

Wittig stresses that everyone that occupies Spaces is important. Spaces values people
and ideas and has been redefining the way work is done. He said, “With a high growth
of interest in the local scene, there is no doubt that this is just the beginning for Manila’s
own community of thinkers, achievers, and Imagineers to come together and create
ripples.
