A San Francisco-based female entrepreneur is converting one of the city’s historic homes into a co-working space for women, exhibiting the diversity of ideas and unconventional thinking that flourishes within the city. The co-working space will open Wednesday, April 5.
San Francisco entrepreneur Priya Kuber said she got the idea to build a new co-working space inside a historic home after seeing a set of intact but empty historic homes on Yerba Buena Island, the site of a now-defunct naval base. The space will offer amenities similar to facilities like WeWork, including technological amenities like printing and Internet service and ‘homier’ amenities like a kitchen and dining room. Kuber also said she wants the house to have a sense of community, and that the space and programs offered will be ‘women-centric’, avoiding any sense of gender stereotyping.
The conversion of a local historic home into a co-working space showcases simultaneously San Francisco’s rich cultural history and its drive for innovation.
