The pandemic has undoubtedly changed our relationship with office space. As soon as it lost its gravitational pull, it was proven that most knowledge-based workers could truly work from anywhere—whether that was at home, a cafe or a top-quality on-demand workspace.
But while the traditional “one desk per employee” office is no longer the most effective, it’s clear that most businesses still benefit from some form of physical office presence. Whether it’s for team culture, collaboration or meetings, the ‘office’ still has a place in the new world of work.
This is where Hubble comes in. As the world’s first hybrid workplace platform, we’ve helped businesses of all sizes figure out how they should take up office space in London, UK and worldwide. We do this via our two flagship products: Hubble HQ and the Hubble Pass.
While Hubble HQ enables you to rent office space by the month or longer, the Hubble Pass allows you to access a global network of on-demand workspace that’s bookable by the day or hour—and both of these solutions will easily help you rent a small office space in London.
But which one you’ll opt for completely depends on what you, and your team, needs. As the world’s first hybrid workplace platform, Hubble’s here to guide and advise you on your new office space in London. Let’s go!

Private day offices
A private day office is a space that is separated and out of earshot from other companies. Just like a traditional private office, these workspaces afford businesses more seclusion for confidential work.
But the key difference is that they’re ‘on-demand’. This means that businesses can rent a private office by the day, whenever and wherever they want—whether it’s in London, Manchester or Milton Keynes.
With most daily office rental bookings, you’ll also be able to make use of additional facilities that the workspace has to offer. While this will vary from place to place, they will usually include free tea and coffee, breakout space and on-site showers with your booking.
