THE SPACE Great for a group of up to 25 people, the space offers an all-in-one where you can hold your meeting or planning session, break for a brief walk to nearby Ballard eateries or breweries, then enjoy a special turn-key team building session, creativity or innovation workshop, or special customized life-sized games. Our flexible 600 ft² unique interactive room with a view of the canal is just right for your next effective meeting, strategic planning session, retreat, workshop, or team offsite. Configure our tables and chairs, use the whiteboards, log into our wifi, and present your vision on our 43” monitor or projector (available by arrangement). Your rental includes the use of a separate reception room where you can hang coats and staff a welcome/check in desk, use of our kitchen area, and - if it is not out on tour - some interactive play time on our Interactive Game Wall. The view, the colors, the Giant Dice, and the game-like checkerboard floor all comprise our innovation-inspiring play space, where we create all types of learning, engagement, and training games, exercises and activities. Part of that inspiration is the South View that looks out onto the canal and Fisherman’s Terminal docks where you might spy a fishing boat from the Dangerous Catch series. Learn the special signals that raise and lower the Ballard Bridge and watch vessels large and small glide under the opening arms of the Bridge. This industrial building was built in the 50’s (we think), and is solidly built with that 70’s industrial olive feel and matching his/her’s symbols on the minimalist bathrooms entrances. MORNING: Reconnect the team over coffee, plan, strategize, and brainstorm in this inspiring space. Project that workplan, breakout into groups, and set your goals as you can only do away from the usual workspace. LUNCH: Eat in with your catered or boxed lunch, or stretch all of the legs and minds of your team eat at one of the many nearby Ballard eateries or breweries, only a 5 to 10-minute walk away. AFTERNOON: Enjoy a special turn-key teambuilding session, creativity or innovation workshop, or special customized life-sized games at special rates. Tell us your teambuilding and learning goals, and we’ll create a package of purposeful play that makes every moment of your day enjoyably effective.

Jan G. booked an off-site for 3 people
We produced an important live stream virtual event that reached one hundred participants. We rented the space for two days: one for the virtual event rehearsal, and another for the broadcast. The space was clean and had everything we needed: great internet, flexible tables, whiteboards, and chair setup that made it easy - and coffee and snacks were a nice touch. Very easy to find the location, and it was easy for our participants to access the space. Rob generously allowed us to preview the space and helped us create a plan for the best camera and speaker setups that met our needs while keeping Covid spacing. Space was clean, roomy, and pre-set up for our virtual event as discussed. We needed a relatively quiet space for the live stream, and while I read in another review that there were some bridge noises, they weren't noticeable at all for us. While tech support was not included, Rob arranged for a back up internet connection, lent us cables, and was really instrumental in our successful live virtual event. We’ve already recommended this space to others, and we will use it again for future broadcast events and other team meetings.

The space was as advertised, and Rob was great at following up whenever I asked anything. He was also readily available whenever needed, and it was nice to have coffee and water cups readily available. While there were many creative parts to the room that we didn't use, the space looked like a great resource for fun team activities. I wish there had been more information about how to actually find the room. Rob came down to let us in as soon as we called, but the outside of the building has no indication that there is a meeting room inside and the Peerspace page didn't mention that it would be difficult to find. More signage or information prior to the session would have helped with this. The space was very cool, but not ideal for a team whiteboarding session. There were occasionally noises from the bridge area that made it difficult to hear, and one of the whiteboards barely erased. Still, it was spacious for our group of 15 and it was nice to have the sunshine and water view from the room. For more creative and fun sessions, I'd totally recommend this space! It was nice to be within walking distance of Ballard, perfect for post-session hangouts, and Rob was great to work with.
