Weak Signal's description: 

More and more of the so-called knowledge workers from the creative class join so called CoWorking houses. CoWorking houses offer an easy, flexible and budget workspace (LAN and coffee flat rate included). They combine workspace (productive and functional) with a creativity hub (social, energetic, creative). By this, people from a broad spectrum of disciplines meet and can collaborate with each other. Many CoWorking houses explicitly promote great openness - people shall share knowledge and ideas. People, who in times of the “old” corporate offices probably would have never met can now come together and innovate.

I think this is going to be a way forward, the main obstacles i foresee are cultural.

Many managers still like to physically see employees, judging on attendance rather than outputs.
