Starbucks vision behind the Third Place was to create a space between the home and the office which offered the sort of environment that had always been cherished in the best coffee houses through the years – a place to meet, to read, to debate and discuss, to be on your own. As Starbucks built their chain, independent cafes popped up to offer alternative takes on basically the same principles. So now the question is, have coffee shops lost their 3rd space position and become 2nd space locations because of the Bedouin Workers using the space.
