A SPACE MANILA is the biggest and coolest co-working space in the metro. Our company, Mercato Centrale, Manila's biggest night food market organizer recently relocated to A SPACE and felt right at home.
Have you ever wondered how it feels to actually work in an unconventional space for innovative companies? A SPACE Manila aims to provide exactly that experience.
Here's a photo essay of one awesome day in the life of a "Spacer"...
5TH FLOOR: CO-WORKING DAY LOUNGE
The 5th floor is home to the CO-WORKING DAY LOUNGE, with a mix of workstations (from seated to stand-up), balconies with benches, swinging gravity chairs, actual swings in the garden, bean bags in the gallery, and stools at the bar.
This is my favorite place to hold intimate meetings and brainstorming sessions.
_Gallery is an art gallery and events venue good for 50-100+ people. It has hosted some incredibly diverse events--from an _ ACOUSTIC Stage for Fete de la Musqiue or Malasimbo, to the local launch of Aussie design gurus, Canva, Singaporean sensations, The Asian Parent, and transportation innovators, GrabCar. It's also been the venue of the massive AngelHack weekend, a long list of Startup Grinds, meet-ups, exhibitions, and even a Foosball tournament.
3RD FLOOR: CO-WORKING CLUB
LUNCH, A SPACE STYLE
7th FLOOR: NEW FLOOR
At first, we had a hard time adjusting from a traditional office space to the collaborative set up that A SPACE provides. But the end benefits of an energizing environment, being part of a community of cool people, and an engaging space made the transition worthwhile.

Bldg. 110 Legazpi St., Legaspi Village

A SPACE to Locate + Thrive at Manila’s co-worker central. Living up to the 4 main personalities: ROCKSTAR, PHILOSOPHER, ARTISAN & FRANK.
A SPACE is full of PEOPLE, full of POSSIBILITIES. It’s not just about four walls and a door, or about parking spaces, and your feet. It’s about what you can do in the right context, with the right neighbors, and with powerful backing. A SPACE that grows with your collective imagination. A SPACE where one story leads to another, where walls collapse and minds collide. A SPACE is a journey with no forced itinerary. It’s up to you and your crew where to take it next.
