When Courtney Lewis Cheng needed to work remotely from her California office for two months in Rhode Island, she had a few options to consider … but a Downtown Providence location and skyline view sealed the deal.

“Hatch was one of the first places I contacted, and after I stepped into the skylight room, I knew I had found the right place.”

Courtney, a designer and web developer for Bay Area-based Conservation Strategy Fund, spent two solid months using Hatch as her near-daily workspace.

In particular, Courtney enjoyed the quiet, comfortable atmosphere and the great location.

“I developed a ritual of getting iced coffee across the street. And after work, there were a ton of places to grab a drink and relax within walking distance.”

When asked about the challenges of working remotely, Courtney admitted that accountability is a self-regulating task – however, if you have an independent spirit, there’s no better place to buckle down and get work done.

Would Courtney return to Hatch if she had to do it again?

“Absolutely, in a heartbeat,” she said. “I really loved all the people I met there, and really started to feel like a part of the community.”
