“Finding the perfect spot in a co-working office is difficult. Even before you choose a space, you need to see if it suits your working style. Don’t settle for the first one you see.” – Nasis M. Pap, a software architect, is a member of Spaces
2. Mingle with the right crowd
“It’s been wonderful talking to other parents and the teachers at Trehaus. I think it’s incredibly important for us parents to support one another.” – Claire Huang, an A*Star researcher, on how members at Trehaus are helping her cope as an expat mum.
3. Make full use of the amenities
“I spend considerable time in meetings. Knowing that my child is happy and being stimulated by loving and experienced carers has given me such peace of mind.” – Dilek Akca Haskan on how Trehaus’ childcare facilities have helped her.

“I want a space where I can set up a workstation that I’ll want to go to every day. So, having the option of a dedicated desk is important to me. I also love to personalise my space. I have 30 books, five candles and an aroma diffuser at my desk.” – blogger and host Jemimah Wei on working at The Hive.
