The Hatchery Place is a cozy in-home coworking + coliving + colearning space with an unpretentious personal style that welcomes all conscious creative nomads as well as local location-independent creatives.
It is actually in a home, a terrace house located at a quiet residential area in suburb USJ Subang Jaya, Malaysia. Kevin (UI/UX designer turned woodworker) and Elaine (software consultant turned full time artist) were both corporate quitters and growth-oriented creative souls who started The Hatchery Place in February 2016, at first to escape the cubicle world to build their passion careers, but now the space has evolved into an inspiring little community where traveling creatives share and exchange their skills, cultures and experiences with the locals.
Elaine & Kevin, founders of The Hatchery Place
With the amazing help of volunteers, The Hatchery Place has become not just a working space. It is now a platform which meets the requirements of traveling creative nomads and art makers, and expands their opportunities. In a mixture of relaxed suburb home living atmosphere and concentrated working environment, we create room between work and privacy in which innovation and creativity of travelers can fostered, as they cowork together with the local neighborhood creativepreneurs here.
During the day, the space is a shared coworking space and at night, turns into a shared coliving space. A cozy, fun, homey, and creative work space and heart-centered friendship incubator for our travelers, writers, digitalnomads, crafters, poets, makers, musicians, artists, artisans, yogis, designers, youtubers, vloggers, healers, vegans, cyclists, and anyone else interested in stretching the boundaries of themselves to include trusting strangers. In the weekends, workshops and events are run to cultivate a creative co-learning lifestyle in the community.
Kevin & Elaine run, work and sometimes live in the space with little Ginger, the friendly cat. We also host small art & craft events, workshops, meetup nights, healing circles, food and drink tastings, talks, poetry nights and more here. Regular activities we run here are drum circles, painting workshops, gardening workshops, woodworking workshops, creative meetups, & etc. Coffee/tea/cold drinks and snacks are sold at the mini snack bar. Coliving guests can also host their own workshops or coaching sessions here, or participate in our events.
