The Astbury* is Manila’s first transformative private members club
for original thinkers, creative teams, and culture-shapers.

Designed with love by the infamous ASPACE.

FRESH AIR & THINKING

It’s been a wild couple of years, so we’ve ditched the old school office, and opened our windows to fresh air, and our minds to fresh ideas. You’ll find a new way to live, work, gather.

IMPACT

By simply working, eating, drinking, or meeting at the Astbury, make an impact with your routine; we’ll amplify your advocacies, and co-create programs, adventures, culture to make Membership meaningful. 

FOCUS

From quiet floors in our space, to smart service and connections; we’ve designed the ability to focus into all aspects of your Membership. Read, pranayama, nap, write, produce, design…

CREATIVITY

Creativity is fun and inspirational. It’s also the way we save our planet and each other from chaos and corruption. Creativity is the spark and the production. Your creative community just expanded.

OPPORTUNITY

Membership equates to opportunity: to meet new people or take a rare moment to yourself. To find collaborators and projects, or to contribute to impact programs or culture.

GROWTH

Growth is professional and personal: finding opportunities, accessing new markets or forging partnerships; new skills, social connections, new activities. Don’t buy more, be more.

In 2009, we pioneered coworking in Manila and trashed the office cubicles beloved at the time by Regus and outdated hierarchies embraced by many corporations across the Philippines. In 2011, we rather lazily called ourselves “A SPACE” (just a space for fun people) and accidently started the coworking movement in the Philippines. Since then, our Members and collaborators number among the most original thinkers and doers in the country. We’ve been creating, crafting, and inventing original spaces and experiences for a decade. This is what we love to do.

Since the arrival of Covid though, we’ve experienced the near collapse of our business, tragedies within our families, and the erosion of community energy as we knew it. Wow, what a couple of years! For us, it prompted stark and radical change. We’ve always created workspace that recharged us instead of drained us, and social space with more meaning than just alcohol and beats. With our new project, we move beyond our most creative coworking design into a world of possibilities packed with purpose, fueled by passion and necessity. We’ll work together, learn together, and shape our city together.

At the heart of this change is a greater confidence that offices are outmoded, and the hybrid habits that we have long embraced – the privilege of working from home, from ASPACE, from the pool, or from a café – is more closely aligned with our human preferences. What’s more, if we could only encourage a culture that energized us at work, and connected us socially with the best of each other, amplifying the ideas and causes we champion.

You work, you play, and you sustain positive change along the way. That has become our starting point for this next phase in our evolution, a space where just by being present we contribute more, and benefit from the change wrought by this pandemic.

Can you see the icon popping up in the bottom corner? That’s all you need to start a conversation with one of the Fam here.

Although Members get our private numbers, we don’t post email or landline numbers online, it’s the 2020s, we are all about direct communications. If you are interested in anything you’ve read or seen, just start the chat and we’ll take it from there.

MANIFEST-NO

If we had all the answers, we’d write a manifesto.
Until then, let’s all stay curious, creative, and collaborative.
