Storage, parking and desk Space

My Hippo Space Web application and hybrid iOS and Android mobile app development

Helping people to rent out their space to those who need it. It's like Airbnb but for storage. Hosts can list their garden sheds, spare rooms, garages or lofts for storage space. Driveway or garage for parking space. Office co-working places can list their desks for rent. Renters have access to affordable and local space.

Ambitious idea

We like crazy ambitious ideas. We love working with entrepreneurs that wish to disrupt the industry. My Hippo Space is precisely that. A new product that enters establishing market and changes it. This project was very complex, and our whole team worked tirelessly for a year to deliver My Hippo Space on three platforms.

Web portal

Web portal user experience is designed to bridge mobile and web users together into one single eco-centre offering the same functionality but the different user experience for each platform.

Mobile app

Hybrid mobile app development route was chosen as the best approach to developing a mobile app for both platforms at the same time. We used React Native mobile app framework.

Planned expansion

My Hippo Space platform was designed to be expandable to new geographical regions using user localisation with different rules and currencies and of course illustrations.

Creating micro-economy

Helping people earn extra income from renting out their garages, spare rooms and loft for storage or parking.


Renters can make bookings of any storage, any location, any country. We integrated the commission calculation and offer two types of payments.


Upgrade to host account and start listing your space. Hosts have full control of their spaces, booking costs, availability and instant payouts.

Your storage offers

You are in control of your storage cost. The host sets the price, and the renter can accept or decline each offer.

Storage, parking and desks

The client wanted three types of products available from the start. Each class has a slightly different approach.
