The Conscious Playground

About OOO


creative retreats

Getting away from it all might seem a romantic, if not impossible, notion in this day and age.
Treacherous commutes, nail-biting deadlines and lofty KPIs can mean work just doesn’t quit and wellness suffers.

Out of Office is an experiment in having it all.


We take enterprising, like- minded people to wide open spaces where they can relax, recharge and really embrace their work. Cramped cafes, long hours and tired routines can make for a creative desert. So we figured if a change is as good as a holiday, then fresh air and a more balanced work life is just what the doctor ordered. Out of Office aims to nurture creativity and clear thinking by providing the tools to look after yourself so that you can really take care of business. We offer nourishing meals, opt-in yoga, meditation, business development sessions and afternoon naps. With everything taken care of, Out of Office is a place that makes the pursuit of balance a reality; encouraging both your best work and your best self.
