Sphere is a coworking and wellness oasis
in downtown Oakland, created by women.
From flexible desk space to private offices, on-site fitness, massage and acupuncture, plus a full calendar of classes and social events, Sphere is a place where we can work, connect, move, grow and be nourished.
It all happens under one roof—in other words,
within our sphere.

A Place to Belong
At Sphere, we want to help women manage the many and often competing aspects of their lives. Student, employee, consultant, artist, entrepreneur, creative, activist, parent, household social director, retiree: at any given time, you might be some or all of the these.
We want your Sphere to have space for them all, in a physical space that’s as warm and inviting as a friend’s home.
The Sphere Experience
We’ve designed Sphere to be a respite from high-pressure offices and distracting living environments.
When you come to Sphere, we want you to come as you are, whether you’re wearing sweats or a suit.
You can even take your shoes off—we’ll provide the slippers.
Sphere is located in vibrant downtown Oakland, an eclectic and diverse community filled with historic landmarks, cool shops and amazing restaurants. We’re a short walk to the downtown Oakland BART stations and close to the Bay Bridge and the 880 and 980 freeways. We’re also walking distance from the Old Oakland Historic District, Chinatown, Civic Center, Uptown and Lake Merritt.
Beaux Arts Elegance
Sphere is located in a beautiful 9,000-square-foot space on the third floor of the historic Oakland Bank of Savings Building in downtown Oakland, California. Designed by prominent architect Charles W. Dickey in 1907, the Oakland Bank of Savings Building was the city’s second steel-frame “skyscraper” and embodied Oakland’s rapid growth after the 1906 earthquake. It’s a fitting symbol of Oakland’s renaissance, and we hope it will spark your personal renaissance, too.
