Fast Company's Adele Peters takes a look at a co-working company's plan to make use of London's iconic phone booths by transforming them into micro-offices.
Pod Works, developed by Bar Works, makes it possible for remote workers to temporarily rent a tiny, private office. Inside each disused London phone booth, there will be a power outlets, a scanner, Wi-Fi, a 25-inch monitor, and free coffee and tea. A membership to use the booths costs about $30 per month.
Bar Works has leased 23 phone booths so far in London and plans to expand throughout the city and the U.K. as soon as it gets permission from planning commissions. The first mini-offices, which are being retrofitted now, will open this summer.
