Knowledge workers increasingly choose how they work, while companies are reinventing their real estate strategies and workplace policies to lower costs, enhance financial performance and increase employee engagement. Serendipity Labs was founded with a singular vision: to build a network of inviting, inspirational members-only workplaces, combining state-of-the-art workplace design, technology, and security with the highest service level standards to deliver a consistent and peerless workplace experience through company-owned, franchised, and managed Labs in urban and suburban locations. Our mission is to deliver an upscale, hospitality-based workplace experience that can serve as an extension for businesses and a home base for established, independent professionals.
Serendipity Labs is in the hospitality business, not the office rental business. Each Serendipity Labs workplace is staffed by members from the local community with a passion for hospitality and exceptional service. Our commitment to consistently delivering a first-class experience is what sets us apart. At Serendipity Labs, we strive to become part of the fabric of our communities. Our network is growing through owned, managed and franchised locations in office buildings, high-rise residential projects, hotels and retail properties, with over 100 locations currently under development. Why does this matter? Our franchisees understand how to deliver on incomparable hospitality, and they are invested in their community, making each location the best it can be.

Each Lab is imbued with vitality from a mix of members, events and programming – allowing for serendipitous interactions and helping members reach their fullest potential, both professionally and personally.
Can a workplace deliver an inspirational experience? It can if it’s designed and delivered with as much intelligence and care as a Serendipity Labs. With membership plans ranging from full-time, dedicated offices, to coworking plans to occasional drop-in plans, Serendipity Labs offers productive, welcoming environments that meet the on-demand workplace needs of remote and mobile workers, business travelers and project teams. Our hospitality teams also deliver exceptional offsite meeting and corporate event experiences. It all comes together at Serendipity Labs: A members-only premium workplace alternative. With insightful workplace design guidance by Steelcase, Serendipity Labs members can choose the way they want to work, connect, collaborate and thrive. With a level of hospitality that rivals elite hotels, Labs members also get corporate service standards in technology, security, communication, and document management. Private enclaves, ideation studios, lounges and work bars – just a few of the many workplaces available in every Labs location. Contact us to learn more and start your new worklife.
