The term “shared office space” is almost interchangeable with coworking spaces. In fact, a lot of shared office spaces also offer dedicated desk and shared desk options, along with virtual office plans. The difference is that some shared office spaces are just that - A building with redundant spaces that can be rented out as private offices or work stations. Some shared office spaces are based on a membership plan and some rent by the hour. Member services depend largely on the company who rents out shared office spaces.
