The Red Phone Boxes in the United Kingdom have now turned into red mini offices


Many of the United Kingdom’s miraculous, attractive and red phone boxes owned by the company named POD WORKS have turned them into mini offices that can be hired for short stints.

This famous British red phone box was designed as part of a competition in 1924.

It is now instantly recognized around the world. But with smartphones rendering their service obsolete, a number of other noble ways have emerged to preserve this piece of history.

For the past few years, it was being used as a place for only making telephone calls, but the attractive red phone boxes are now enjoying a change of sorts. The red phone boxes and the phones in them have been rendered virtually obsolete by the smartphone. But a few of the quick-thinking entrepreneurs have stepped in to make use of the tiny spaces.

Pod Works is now offering renovated versions of the classic red boxes. It is fitted out with everything you need in a mini-office.

“Why sit in a noisy, public coffee shop when you can sit in one of our secure Pods and truly focus on your work ?”. The micro offices are aimed at travelling business people.  People who might be tired of working from a cafe or looking for a bit of peace while working. The company is creating a network of these mini offices around the United Kingdom by starting from London.
