Beautification Award to Backyard Dream Studios: The O Coworking Space

Congrats to Backyard Dream Studios/The O Coworking Space on receiving a Chamber Beautification Award to be presented at our 102nd Annual Meeting on July 31st at The Club at Strawberry Creek.

Backyard Dream Studios worked tirelessly to renovate The Kenosha Orpheum office space and create The O Coworking Space with a mission to connect the community and business professionals with something greater than themselves. The O Coworking Space features 24/7 key card access, free printing, high speed internet, a conference room, a kitchenette with free coffee, monthly memberships ranging from open desk seating to private offices, and even daily passes for those who need to stop in and use the internet or printer.

The space was vacant since the early 1980’s. From the original maple floors to the rustic ceilings, Backyard Dream Studios created a space in Kenosha’s vibrant Downtown that provides a quiet, clean and professional coworking space where anyone may rent space short term. Being close to Lake Michigan, part of Downtown, and part of the business community works with their core values that include community, diversity, collaboration, and professionalism while having fun.
