Xchange Hub is a mini universe in its own right. The workspace forms part of XChange Place, a residential complex of attractive one, two and three bedroom apartments. Although the work hub is attached to the residential community, you don’t have to be a resident to rent a deskspace, but you can make use of its on-site facilities, including a gym and a car park.

The hub’s N7 postcode positions it part way between Islington and Kings Cross. This makes it great for both transport links and fun evening activities – namely eating at the delicious restaurants in Highbury & Islington. The nearest tube station is Calendonian Road – a mere two minute’s walk away, which connects the area to the City, West End and beyond via the Picadilly line.

I found myself working opposite a foods startup on a rainy Tuesday morning and was immediately impressed by the design, which is creative but clean and uncluttered.  Although the space is relatively small, it has been well-designed, with every corner utilised to its full potential. Two meeting rooms tucked away at the side of the building contain the latest AV equipment, and an adjoining kitchen provides all the facilities you need.

This space is perfect for freelancers and startups who have outgrown their home office and are looking for a flexible, dynamic and convenient place in which to work.
