C3Lab describes itself as “a new creative hub located for designers, entrepreneurs, freelancers, artists and other creative types. Combining the best features of a home office, coffee shop, business space, community center, & studio shop.  This vibrant, dynamic space encourages connection and communication to spark creative thoughts and ideas.”
