8 of the Most Unusual and Inspiring Workspaces on Unsettled Retreats

By: Naomi Matlow, Associate Editor & endless pursuer of the most unusual office space…

In all of our Unsettled locations we provide easily accessible coworking spaces so that you can stay connected to your work life, go “heads down” and focus on a conference call you have to take from halfway around the world, and be present for what your work requires of you. But it is not unusual for people to take living Unsettled to the max and create their own pop-up home offices. By staff and alumni alike, Unsettlers can get quite creative. What’s an office other than a place where you can be the most productive, right?

Here are a few workspaces that Unsettled has used so far…
