A THIRD SPACE
The term Third Space or Third Place was coined by the sociologist Ray Oldenburg in the early 90s in his book The Great Good Place.
It's a space where people meet to unwind, visit, and talk about things. Things that matter to them, their neighborhood, and their community.
A third space is separate from both the work environment, where interaction may be functional and superficial, and from the home environment, where space may be too cramped and chaotic-or too cavernous and quiet.
It's a place for people to let down their guard, relax, be themselves. A place to develop new friendships, and deepen existing ones. We are proud to bring a third space into historic downtown Guthrie, OK.
