What is a Temporary Office Space and How to Choose One

According to the World Bank, 47% of the global workforce are freelancers. 

That’s nearly half of the working population using home offices, co-working spaces, or other alternative work arrangements to earn a living.

This brings along the need to provide flexible or short-term solutions for freelance or remote workers who are not interested in renting office spaces for long.

As a result, we have compiled a comprehensive guide for you on what temporary office space is and how to choose the one that suits your specific needs and preferences.

What is a Temporary Office Space?

Temporary office space is just like a traditional office, but with better and more advanced upgrades to help you improve your productivity and efficiency, even within a short timeframe.

These office spaces are becoming increasingly popular because you do not need to cater to the overheads that come with a traditional office.

With a temporary office like The Westlund Building, you pay according to your needs. These needs may be a few months, days or hours. So, whichever your preference is, we have customized and flexible payment plans to accommodate varying needs.

Also, our temporary office space brings along benefits like:

  1. Provide networking opportunities where you can meet like-minded people to connect and collaborate with.
  2. The flexibility of choosing what kind of office space you need whether a private office, co-working space, or meeting room.
  3. Access to professional development opportunities like workshops and seminars through WGCLIFE.
  4. Access to the podcast studio when you want to record or collaborate with other creatives to create high-quality content.

How to Choose a Temporary Office Space

Just like a traditional office, there are so many factors that come into play before you settle on the space. 

For a temporary office space, these factors are even more important since you are spending a few hours at a time. Therefore, you need to capitalize on the space to become more productive.

These factors include:

1. Know the Purpose of the Office Space

Most temporary office spaces have different spaces to accommodate various numbers of people. So, determine how many people you will need in your temporary office space before renting it.

For instance, the table below shows the different office spaces that The Westlund Building offers.

Rental Option Maximum Team Size Description
Rental A 2 people Perfect for smaller teams to provide a compact workspace solution.
Rental B 3 people Ideal for slightly larger teams
Rental C 4 people Offers a workspace for teams providing a bit more room to collaborate.
Rental D 6 people Suitable for larger teams with ample workspace space left to spare.
Rental E 8 people Spacious enough for sizable teams offering room for growth.

2. Set a Budget for Your Temporary Office

Knowing what kind of space you require allows you to narrow down a workspace that meets your requirements. However, you should also set a budget for how much money you are willing to spend each day, week, or month.

It helps narrow down the search further since you now have a budget and the type of office space you need to consider.

3. Choose a Convenient Location

The location of your temporary office space plays a large part as it should be easy to access for you, your team, clients, and partners.

This will make it easy for you to save time while commuting there making it an ideal choice for productive and efficient workdays.

4. Check the Amenities Available

While many people overlook this factor, it significantly impacts your productivity.

The reason is that you need high-speed internet, and better office equipment to work efficiently and conduct meetings or presentations seamlessly. You also need to access clean drinking water and maybe coffee or tea to keep you hydrated as you work.

The Westlund Building ensures they provide clean and spacious amenities like:

  • Kitchen and coffee bar
