I propose to use office=coworking for those that are offices, and if you come along a different kind of place where people are working together without being in the same company you'll have to invent a new tag for these particular different kind of places, e.g. there's already something for collective bicycle repair (where coworking isn't a typical term to refer to).

Wait, what?

The point of coworking spaces is that it is people from different
companies or independent contractors, consultants, etc are using a
shared space and resources.

If everyone is coworking in a shared space for the same company that
is just a regular office.
