Co-working. (Source: http://volbiz.ru/editorschoice/kovorking-dlya-mikro-i-malogo-biznesa.html)
Unlike a typical office environment, co-workings and shared office spaces are becoming more and more demanded and attractive to people who enjoy being work-at-home professionals, freelancers, specialists in creative industries, etc. This uprising trend prompts entrepreneurs to open various places in the largest cities of Russia to foster this new idea of arranging the working process. Here we give you a brief overview of the freshly launched lofts, co-working spaces and shared offices in St. Petersburg.
 
One of the reasons for growing popularity of co-working spaces is the opportunity to spend working hours not within the walls of an office, being strictly scheduled and watched by your boss, but to feel the freedom of self-managed working process, while in the company of people who share the idea of a social, collaborative and informal lifestyle.
                                                           
Zonaspace, the Largest Co-Working
 
“Zonaspace” is the largest co-working in Saint-Petersburg launched in February 2012 in the territory of a former bread-baking plant. 674 square meters of this creative cluster provide an open space for co-working, two event-zones, two serviced offices, and a kitchen. It is not only a shared office space, but also an educational club that hosts lectures, seminars and conferences on business, culture, media, and personal development. The project is supported by the founder of the most popular Russian social network “Vkontakte” – Mr.  Pavel Durov; and one of the greatest residents here is a well-known Internet newspaper “The Village”. ]

“Fakel” Centre of Modern Culture
 
The residents of “Fakel” Centre of Modern Culture arrive to their working places by skateboards or bicycles. They arrange barbecues on Friday and other outdoor events. This co-working promotes fresh ideas and differs from all the rest in St. Petersburg, as it provides all the services free of charge. The payment is not money, but a new project created by the residents. To become a member of “Fakel” you need to have an active and productive team. And in this case you get free Wi-Fi, a projector, lighting equipment, exhibition stands, musical equipment and six spacious halls for putting your ideas into practice.
