About this project

What is Locadora?

Locadora is a platform that connects people with all kinds of creative interests with the workspace and supplies they need to create their best work. Our goal is to help every person with a creative hobby find the space they need to let their creativity unfold, whether it’s around the corner or across the globe.

How It Works?

People with extra room can list their space on Locaroda and make extra money, while we help stock the space and help manage the booking process.

When renting on Locadora, you can search listings of creative spaces near you, and customize your search based on your needs and interests.

All of our listings and hosts are verified before being listed on the platform, so you’ll always have a safe, reliable experience.

Every listing has clear pictures of the space, a list of supplies provided, and a calendar of availability.

You can also customize your Locadora experience by adding other services such as a cleaning service or booking an expert coach to work with you.

When your reservation is near, we’ll send you a reminder and directions to the workspace and an access code.The access code is your unique passcode to enter the workspace.

When your reservation is up, or you’re done using the space, simply check out and the space will be locked and cleaned up behind you.

Why We are Building Locadora?

Locadora is built by a dedicated, multidisciplinary team from Carnegie Mellon University. Our backgrounds are in product development, human-computer interaction, and design. We’re also creative hobbyists.

You Can Make Locadora Happen

We need your help to realize our vision. You can help our team by contributing to our kickstarter campaign and list your extra space on the platform. Your donation will be used to help finish developing our mobile app, and furnish and stock our first easy access spaces. Together, we can help people find the place where their creativity unfolds.
