A coworking and wellness oasis.
Cowork, move, grow and replenish, all in one space.
Sphere is a coworking and wellness oasis in downtown Oakland created by women. Its mission is to cater to the Whole Womxn so that she has a place to work, move, grow and replenish all in one space. For too long, womxn have compartmentalized their lives, rather than embracing the fluidity and complexity of all their needs. Sphere promises a stimulating working environment alongside workshops, workouts, and wellness.
The Sphere Experience
Sphere is a comfortable, casual indoor oasis with living walls, abundant natural light, and design touches like plush poufs and brilliant rugs, We’ve designed Sphere to be a respite from high-pressure offices and distracting living environments. We are a coworking space and community as whole as you are where you can:
Cowork in our lovely open spaces and lounges or in your own private office. You’ll find yourself in a beautiful and stimulating atmosphere, where you can ideate and do what’s important to you.
What our members are saying about us:
Sphere is a beautiful, welcoming space that has saved my sanity! After 4 years of working from home and trying several other workspaces, I have finally found my place. Working from home is very lonely and when I tried other workspaces it was just work from another place but still alone.
Sphere is much more than a workspace. It is a warm community where the staff treat you like an old friend and the members are interesting, inspiring and open to conversation.
I admit I was worried about the cost but the positive impact on my life is priceless! I am so much happier in my work life and so much more productive. And I haven't even mentioned the convenience of having state of the art workout equipment and innovative fitness classes steps away from your desk.
There are not enough hours in the day to allow me to spend all of the time that I want to at Sphere!

A Place to Belong
For too long, womxn have compartmentalize their lives, rather than embracing the fluidity and complexity of all their needs. At any given time you may be a student, employee, consultant, artist, entrepreneur, creative, activist, parent, household social director, retiree, or all of the these.
We want Sphere to be a place where you can express all of yourself, in a physical space that’s as warm and inviting as a friend’s home.
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.
