Treehouse time

Coworking community where kindness meets business

Based in Amsterdam

Work at your soul’s pace


Go big or go home? Nah. Just go at your own pace and make friends along the way.

Don’t do it alone

It’s important to surround yourself with people who know the struggle of being an entrepreneur.
Not just to support you when it gets tough, but also to celebrate small victories together. At the Treehouse, we support each other through the highs and lows.

Your home away from home

We offer a safe space where you don’t have to pretend. Where you can truly be yourself, be curious and feel safe to show your human, vulnerable side.
So kick off your shoes (literally) and make yourself at home in our beautiful coworking sanctuary.

Do good, make money & be happy

Forget the obsession with growth at all costs.
We encourage and help each other to slow down, take conscious steps with our business and enjoy the ride.

Just think of us as a kind of startup decelerator. :)

Meet the treehouse monkeys

The Treehouse Tribe coworking community is home to a beautiful bunch of dreamers and sparkly enthusiasts. The stage of your idea, business or intention, doesn’t matter to us. As long as you’re a kind person looking to do meaningful work and have fun along the way.

Creative heart of Amsterdam

Our beautiful coworking space is located just a hop and a skip (and a 5 minute ferry ride) away from Central Station, in the buzzing North district of Amsterdam.

Our coworking sanctuary


Let your guard down & play

We offer a space where you can get your absolute best work done and make new friends while doing so.

There are spaces to connect, collaborate, hunker down and focus on your work, but also to unwind & indulge in play (the space is used for Funbase gatherings once a month, so there’s that!).

The Treehouse may very well feel like a home away from home, but here you can actually get some work done as well ;)

Collaborate with fellow enthusiasts & embrace serendipity

We purposefully designed the space to encourage real human connection & serendipitous encounters.

On the ground floor you’ll find our kitchen area, where we check-in with each other over a cup of coffee and have our community lunch. You can get work done here as well, as long as you don’t mind the buzz of people dropping in and out to have a chat.

In the adjacent meeting room there’s space to organise workshops, have a video call or take a dive into the ball pit for a creative session.

Plenty of space to do your magic

It wouldn’t be a coworking space if there was no work space, right? We believe it’s important to provide a lot of flexibility and offer work space that improves posture and stimulates creativity.

On the 1st floor you can get work done while you enjoy the amazing waterfront view, snuggle up on the sofa with your laptop or retreat to one of the work stations in the back for even more focus. We tend to switch it up during the day, based on our needs and the type of work that has to be done.

Refuge for the restless mind

Feel a bit stuck or overwhelmed? Stop, tune in and let go. We offer a way to opt-out of the busyness of business.

Our 2nd floor Zen room is filled with lush plant life & lots of natural light. Here you can enjoy a meditation session, read a book from our shared library or simply soak up some rays on the lovely rooftop terrace.

This space is also used for all kinds of workshops and activities like yin yoga, coaching sessions and after work drinks.

Our big fluffy vision

Imagine a world where people from all different walks of life are empowered & supported to let themselves and their beautiful ideas flourish. Ideas that solve real problems. Rich with purpose & full of life.

Working on your dream company can be quite a lonely endeavour. But it doesn’t have to be.
