You know you’ve made it in New York when your home has 1) space, 2) a yard, or 3) laundry machines. MAJOR bonus points if you have all three; you’re pretty much royalty! For most of us, let’s face it. Options 2 and 3 are not obtainable any time soon. But, for option 1, we have a solution for you. There is a space you can call your own with some help from our friends at Breather and WorkOf.
Breather offers 84 different spaces in NYC alone and over 160 across the United States and Canada. With a simple app, you can rent a beautifully designed space for a half hour, a few hours or even the whole day depending on your needs. We got a chance to catch up with the co-founder, Caterina Rizzi, at their most recent addition in SoHo.
Even with the hustle and bustle outside in this busy neighborhood, you immediately feel calm when entering the space created in collaboration by Breather and WorkOf. Plenty of natural light fills into the studio. It’s clear that a lot of thought went into designing a practical and contemporary environment. Even the books on the shelves are carefully curated!
Caterina shared that Breather was originally borne out of the need to have a peaceful and uncluttered space to relax or be productive. However, since its creation, Breather has grown to be more than just that. Recently, a mother rented out a space to host her daughter’s birthday party. It’s pretty sad to realize that your own home may not be able to accommodate something as special as this. But, thankfully, Breather fills in that space that can’t be fulfilled by what’s available in your current circumstances. How great is that?!
This particular space in SoHo has three separate suites that can be rented individually. The smaller space offers a conference room table, complete with all the needed hook-ups for a productive meeting and a small lounge area. I could not get over this cute neon cloud!
The medium suite offers more of a lounge vibe with modern couches and a small nook for an escape from the larger social area.
Lastly, my favorite was the largest suite. Bigger is better! Haha, okay, not all the time. But, I just love this space! Beautifully designed with a lot of room to do almost anything. I imagine this as the perfect place to hold a creative meeting or be a great backdrop for a photoshoot. The possibilities are endless!
Thanks to the Breather and WorkOf teams for inviting us to this wonderful space and hope you rent out a suite to try it out for your own purposes.
