How to Choose the Right Office Space in Norman – Part 3

Share This Post


There are plenty of beautiful office complexes to be found around the world. When you lease an office directly from property managers, you likely have a lot of freedom in terms of how you decorate and design the look and feel of your work environment. Fortunately, most coworking spaces offer the same freedom if you’re renting an office space.

One benefit of looking for a coworking space is that they tend to have some truly unique architecture and interior design. When we were looking for a space that would become our home at VentureSpace, we spent a lot of time considering the aesthetics and overall feeling from each option. The last thing anyone wants is to show up to work and feel uninspired as you walk up to the building, or feel passively drained from a boring and dull design while you’re inside a place where you wind up spending 40+ hours a week.

Our work environment shouldn’t just give us the space to be productive. Awesome architecture and design can result in a work environment that has a personality of its own. Your place of work should be uplifting and exciting to walk into. You should be able to look around your office space and find comfort in knowing this is where you’re building something truly great.

That’s why we were thrilled to launch VentureSpace inside a historic building in Norman called The Railhouse. Among all the spaces we were exploring, The Railhouse stuck out as so much more than an address to commute to. It immediately felt like a home where we can establish roots and thrive into something grand and unique. We’re approaching the end of our second year here, and the feeling of awe we’ve had since the beginning is still there, just as strong as when we first set foot in The Railhouse for the first time.

An environment like that simply doesn’t compare to an everyday office. Aesthetics can have a huge, lasting impact on what it feels like to go to work. Maybe we’re biased, but we’d choose a place like VentureSpace over renting a simple office every day of the week.


Are you a solopreneur just looking to get out of the house while you work? Or perhaps you’re a remote worker with the same ‘need to get out’ feeling? Maybe you’re a small team looking for somewhere to grow your business…

Regardless of your circumstances, you’ll want to think of what kind of scalability you need for your office space. By leasing an office space directly from a property manager, the idea of moving to a larger or smaller office becomes tedious depending on your leasing contract. You may only have a small window to make changes when your lease is up for renewal every 12 months.

When you have a membership at a coworking space, upgrading or downgrading can typically happen within a month or two of when you give notice. It’s the perfect option if you aren’t sure how much space you’ll want, or how quickly your team might grow. With coworking, there’s no need to worry about small renewal windows. You can just let us know that you’re ready to move up in size, and we’ll make sure you have everything you need to make that transition when you’re ready. Why would we want to stifle such exciting growth with something like a lease contract?

Choosing The Right Office Space in Norman

In the end, your office space should empower your work day, inspire you to new heights of creativity, and give you all the room you need to thrive. It’s not enough to simply find a place to commute to throughout the week.

Your work environment should fill your sails with wind each day before you even arrive at work.

From beautiful architecture and design to a work culture that nurtures love for the work you and your fellow professionals are doing, there are plenty of reasons to choose your office space carefully. We touched on a few of the more important logistics to consider, but there are plenty of other details to weigh before making a final decision.

At VentureSpace, we strive to make that decision as easy as possible. That’s why we offer a Free Coworking Day Pass so that you can get a taste of what it’s like to work here. As far as office spaces in Norman, Oklahoma goes, we’d like to think we’re bringing something unique and empowering to the table. We look forward to seeing you soon to show you what we’re all about.
