about us 

but first, a little about you

You have a lot of balls in the air. And you like it that way. You’re running a household, staying involved with the community, and leaning in at work. But your workspace may be holding you back. The home office is somehow both lonely and distracting (laundry? barking dogs?), coffee shops aren't cutting it anymore, and you're done retreating to your car for quiet phone calls.

Dayhouse Coworking is a comfortable, creative workspace in downtown Highland Park, IL in Chicago’s North Shore suburbs, with a focus on workday wellness and a commitment to supporting woman-fueled endeavors. Amenities include private offices, conference rooms, mail reception, a mind-body room, soundproofed childcare, lactation room, and more. Dayhouse is an easy walk to downtown Highland Park shops and the Metra station. #makeyourdaybetter at Dayhouse!

Make your day better at Dayhouse!


our members

We’re a diverse crew here at Dayhouse. Among our members you’ll find writers, asset managers, filmmakers, architects, and more. Most of our members are small business owners, but some work remotely for larger corporations. We get together throughout the week for an array of programing — accountability sessions, brainstorming lunches, yoga classes, business speakers, and more. We’re all drawn to Dayhouse’s creative atmosphere and friendly, supportive community.

our space

We're housed in a vintage industrial space, unlike anything else on the North Shore. Inside our c. 1930 building, you'll find exposed brick and beams, big windows, and gorgeous wood floors (think West Loop vibes with suburban convenience). Dayhouse is an easy walk to downtown Highland Park shops, the Metra station, and the best amenities of this vibrant lakeside town.
