In 2011 we were among the first coworking pioneers in Vienna, while in Hungary we opened the country’s first coworking space in 2009. Today - thanks to all the innovative ideas and our diverse community - Loffice is home to creative entrepreneurs and cultural initiatives of all sorts.

Today Loffice is present in 2 countries in 3 locations, and since 2009 we're an ever-changing & evolving team of enthusiastic community members. The mission is simple - providing stylish spaces and business support services to collaborate & build a community that feels like family.
The concept of coworking kicked off in the USA in 2005 with the aim to provide a common work space for freelancers & neo-nomads. A space where the office infrastructure is provided but shared with other individuals. Today being location-independent is not just a lifestyle but a common work style in big corporates too, while other sharing economy businesses are also becoming an integral part of our everyday lives.
The sister act
When there still wasn’t any Hungarian or German expression for coworking, two sisters decided to leave their previous careers & face the future by kicking off their own sharing economy business. ‘Panni is the score, Kata is the melody, and you can only hear the music when they play together’ - a friend described them a few years ago. And it’s spot on.
Coworking in the region
Believing that the sharing economy is the future, Kata & Panni introduced coworking to Budapest and they were among the pioneers in Vienna as well. They opened their first space in 2009 without a proper Hungarian expression for it. And their business has been successfully growing and expanding for more than a decade, along with the growth in the number of coworking spaces in the world.

About our locations
Our ﬁrst venues launched in former industrial buildings. Our well-known start-up location was in the former printing shop of the Hungarian Music Academy, a former plastic factory was turned into a design award-winning oﬃce, and an old shoe factory got new life as our base in Vienna. Our brand name reﬂects the trademark loft style of our spaces combined with the main service we oﬀer.
Everyone has a hobby, right? Ours are art, design, gastronomy, business & lifestyle development. We create experiences and organize in-house happenings in these fields. Here's a taste of the 40+ Loffice events & initials of the last years.
Helping startups and entrepreneurs to expand their businesses to Austria, once a year we host a speed-dating & mentoring day to answer practical questions and provide business plan tips. Featuring experts in finance, law and investment, we have been able to help numerous businesses to cross the borders over the years.
Bring the Art Home
Our comprehensive art mentoring program has aimed to help young artists for 4 years. Exhibitions, round table discussions and other happenings have created a platform for them to introduce their art to a new audience, debut in a brand new target market & trigger cultural values.
Fine tuning family & work through events, workshops & marketing campaigns, we are committed to harmonising the career goals of parents with toddlers & the visions of employers. Coworkid is our non-profit organization & its business model for a family friendly future was supported by City of Vienna.
