Need that ‘adult-working-in-a-fancy-office’-feeling? MCA Labs has got you covered! At their coworking space people from all over the maritime industry come together to work and connect. Fun fact: 90% of the furniture you’ll see there was bought second-hand or made from old sea containers and ship ropes. Talk about taking thrifting to the next level! There are also focus areas and soundproof phone booths for optimal concentration and cosy lounges where you can relax by playing a game of pool, getting some coffee, tea or a snack from the Smart Fridge (fancy!). So, get ready to swap ‘chilling at the quay-side’ for ‘studying at the quayside’!
