A Coworking Space on a Mission

why we exist

Ensemble is a collaborative business community and mission-driven coworking space located in the Near Southside, just south of downtown Ft. Worth. We offer community and connections in one place where people work collaboratively and have access to the resources they need to build thriving and sustainable businesses. Ensemble was co-founded by Tamara Payne and Dawn Shannon in 2016 and is proud to be the first woman-owned coworking space in North Texas. In 2018, Tamara became the sole owner and operator.


Our mission is to foster the growth of businesses and the empowerment of individuals by cultivating a thriving ecosystem founded on the principles of meaningful connections, purposeful collaboration, and a vibrant sense of community.

Ensemble offers busy entrepreneurs, small businesses and remote workers a warm and welcoming place to be productive. We don’t sell “desks for rent,” we build genuine connections within a community of like-minded professionals.


Step inside and you will feel right at home. A cozy environment matched with comfortable seating and high-quality work spaces is the perfect combo for getting work done. The experience starts with our highly engaged team, who are attentive and go above and beyond for members and guests alike. Our all-inclusive memberships offer our members and guests a place to belong and where everyone knows their name.

What We Value



Ensemble is a connective hub for professionals who need to meet each other to collaborate, be part of community, grow and have fun while being productive.



We promote and encourage collaboration among members and guests through the sharing of knowledge, resources and connections.



We build community from the inside out, fostering connectedness with members, local neighborhoods, business and city entities.
