Hey There

I believe that the skills and experience you gain from traveling abroad can give you a lifetime of personal benefit, as well as an advantage in the professional world. When I traveled through Portugal and Spain for 3 months, I was surprised at the lack of flexible co-working spaces outside of the city. Where you can easily get in and out. A place where you can kitesurf, then finish a project and in the evening have a drink while meeting new people.

 And so The House of Otis was born. A place where you can be together, work together. But also, to relax and find time to work on your own projects. I chose this area because of its unique location. It is close to nature, beaches, and natural parks. And yet close to cities like Lisbon, Sesimbra, and Setubal.  In my professional career, I am an innovation & strategy consultant and guide companies through their business challenges. I get a lot of energy from talking about fresh ideas. And translating these ideas into concrete concepts and business models. Over the years I have launched several businesses, an e-commerce website, a snowboard brand, a corporate health business. It is my pleasure to use this experience to help others with their professional challenges during their stay. Afterward, I like to take everyone out on the water for kitesurfing or to the nature park for a hike.

I will be happy to welcome you to our home.

Warm regards, Dorien

About last time.

Last year we had our coworking & coliving space Colares, in the middle of nature. It was a fun, and inspiring time. We met so many great people. It was so great, that we are just going to continue with the improved concept in an even better location. Here are a few stories we've had the pleasure of sharing with our guests.
