Spaces combines an inspiring work environment with the benefits of an exclusive business club. The concept aims to boost productivity and support collaboration between members and will be rolled out at GTC White House in Q4 2019.
“Signing the lease agreement with Spaces, the final lease at GTC White House, feels like completing a work of art” – said Bori Gedai, Deputy Country Director at GTC Hungary. “IWG deal means 100% occupancy has been achieved within 9 months of the building’s official opening” – added Bori Gedai.

Spaces is a premium co-working and serviced office product from the International Workplace Group (IWG). It launched 11 years ago and comprises 240 locations worldwide, all providing users with an inspiring, comfortable and community office experience.
“Spaces is a creative work environment with a unique entrepreneurial spirit. Our dynamic workspaces help you think, create and collaborate, while our team makes sure you feel welcome. What really makes Spaces unique is the community we have worked to cultivate – full of forward thinkers, innovators, and game changers who love what they do” – commented Spaces’ co-founder and Managing Director Martijn Roordink.
Ispánki Nikoletta, the Country Manager at IWG added: “In recent years, hundreds of Spaces’ offices around the world have been designed to provide our customers with an ideal, flexible, and personalized office environment that delivers an inspiring atmosphere, comfort and community strength.
