Work from home is still the default mode for most and while it might be nice to spend more time with our families as we work, sometimes spending too much time in the same environment might lead to stale ideas and inhibit our creativity. Other times, we just want to find a space to gather with team members for meaningful discussions and brainstorming activities.
There has been some research that indicates that our physical environment can play a part in inspiring new ideas. For instance, dark and dim environments can promote creativity according to this paper. In an article from The Atlantic, it talks about how taking walks, being in a disorderly place, or discussing in places with a high ceiling or with some ambient noise (akin to a coffeeshop) can help people come up with more creative ideas. So with that in mind, let us recommend some places that meet the following requirements so we can all be creative together!
Finding creativity in a co-working space meant for creatives
From the 22nd of July, Mox, Singapore’s first independent workspace and community for creatives, will be launching their second location at Oxley Rise, at a really convenient place near Dhoby Ghaut. While you can do hot-desking and fixed desks at their location, you can also rent their venues on GetSpaces! These include a meeting room, a social pantry for events/filming and a multi-media studio! Nestled with other creatives, the energy of the place will surely provide an ambience that will get your team eager to get started and come up with new ideas!
From now till 30th September 21, these spaces are all available for booking with a 10% discount and you can find the promo code on each individual listing page at the description section! With their brightly lighted and colourful interior, anyone choosing to have a discussion here will be in a lively mood and this will lead to more energetic meetings!

Studio with daylight and high ceiling
High ceilings, strong daylight and set in a bustling street at Haji Lane. This studio, available with chairs/tables or without, has the perfect conditions for you to have an engaging conversation with your teammates! At its location, you can do your coffee runs at popular coffeeshop % Arabica at Arab Street if you or your team is in need of a good caffeine rush.
Studio Room in a Space for Crafters
Sometimes, we just need to surround ourselves with items and objects that might inspire us in mysterious ways. You can do worse than conducting your team offsites in this lovely space at Lorong Kilat (Near Beauty World Mrt). Set on a peaceful and serene road off Bukit Timah Road, this room is perfect for discussions, study groups and team bonding. You’ll also get to see some of the lovely crafts from Sock Softie Studio in the common area. Check out all spaces by Cozy Up With Craft here.
Studios for content production
If you’re looking to not just brainstorm, but actually get creating and are looking out for places where you can conduct photography or video shoots, with a green screen or backdrops, you can check out our newly onboarded photography studio with a high 6 metre ceiling and plenty of natural light! From now till end of September 2021, you can rent their space using promo code GETSPACESLOB20 for 20% off! Book their space at the attached link.
