Walk into Acre Coffee, Peets or Apple Box on any given day and you’ll find people staring into their computer screens, an army of freelancers, remote employees and entrepreneurs without an office to report to each morning.

It’s a trend happening all over the country, as companies become more flexible about remote work and more entrepreneurs strike out on their own.

But starting next month, this army of office-less souls will have another option besides the local coffee house, as a new co-working space opens on Fourth Street, next to the Petaluma Historical Museum.

Simply called “Work”, the new 3,200 square foot office will offer a communal work area with long tables, a conference room, lending library, kitchen and quiet office for use on a drop-in basis or by the week, month or longer.
