Yes we have meeting rooms! Message us for details.

A creative community of awesome souls hang out at Independent Studios in Melbourne. A former warehouse in the bustling 'burb of Prahran where the best clubs, restaurants and cafes can be found, you can invite your clients into a meeting room or head around the corner for some delicious sushi. Easy accessible, Independent Studios coworking sits next to the Prahran Station and is only a stone throw from South Yarra, South Melbourne and Windsor, making it the perfect destination for all South Melbourne suburbs.

Flush with sunlight, the coworking space encourages collaboration, oozes inspiration and encourages the odd bout of laughter. Home to almost 100 creatives across 2 levels, Independent Studios offers casual desks, full-time dedicated desks, team spaces, temporary offices and the creation of virtual offices. You will have privacy to work if slaving by yourself or plenty of space for a team to huddle without tripping over each other. Meeting rooms are available for when you require a private spot to plan your domination of the world and can be hired by non-members.

Coworking membership plans come in all sorts of shapes and sizes so that you can pick the one that suits you, or if you want something different, it's merely a matter of having a chat with one of the staff to come up with a solution that sends your bliss neurons into overdrive. There is fibre based business grade Wi-Fi to connect to, lockable storage to keep your personal goodies in and a kitchen area to invade when the hunger pangs strike. Awesome coffee is up for grabs and the doors are open from 9am to 5pm or you will have 24/7 access, depending on your membership plan.

      As a business, we thrive off the hum of others working and to have some personal space but be connected has been amazinig. Independent Studios has been very flexible with my business growth allowing me to contract and flex as markets change.

              Independent Studios is a great space with a community centric feel to it. Other members working from the space are super friendly and approachable. Even more importantly, the management team went out of their way to help us settle in within the coworking space and also by introducing us to contacts within our industry that helped us elevate our business during our startup phase. Love the space and the people!

                    Independent Studios are SO accomodating. Everyone is treated fairly and respectfully. They have free meditation sessions and coffee catch ups to break up the day. Its SO clean and Andy and his staff are true gentleman. Super professional to deal with and the place runs like clockwork!

                        Because it has a great creative vibe, people mix together, network, and help each other with business relationships. The management team is very hands-on and always around to help out or give advice. The location is also a big plus in the heart of Prahran and close to public transport.

                          A light, bright and super groovy industrial feel, Independent Studios is a co-working space for like minded entrepreneurs, small businesses and start ups. With super friendly and business savvy management team the wealth of support to help grow my business has been outstanding. I feel really at home every day I step into the office. There are workstation packages to suit most budgets and days in the office and plenty of flexibility to create a customised solution. And the social gatherings and networking opportunities with fellow co-workers is friendly and super chilled. I've loved my time at Independent Studios.

                            Andy + Chris provide a friendly and well equipped coworking space . There is a great sense of being part of a bigger team , celebrating other businesses wins and supporting each other .The vibe is productive and yet not stressful and this is encouraged by the managers as well as those in the share space. A personal introduction and signage as you enter for the first time helps so much with the transition to a share workspace. coffee mornings are encouraged and any technical issue is addressed quickly and efficiently. A good sign was when a visiting client came for a meeting and had mentioned that Independent Studios had a fantastic reputation which also reflected on our choice and business.

                              They are friendly, engaging, helpful, it is a comfortable space to wotk and share with other hard working like minded entrepreneurs. The easy of use, ict access is great, the location is perfect for client meetings and the meeting roo.s are easily accessible for private conversations. I work in HR so my conversations require privacy and confidentiality and Independent Studios services this need. It is light, airy and a pleasure to work there.

                                  March 2019

                                  Tucked in behind a quiet street away in Prahran. Surprising large space spanning two floors. Dedicated desks for the small businesses (eg. 2-6 employees) that call it home, as well as individual freelancers and entrepreneurs. Andy is very welcoming.

                                  "We ran business workshops here with our clients"

                                    March 2018

                                    Independent Studios is a beautiful space to work in. High ceilings, bright and open spaces. We worked upstairs and ran some workshops with clients in the boardroom area. Very productive day and a pleasure to have such a cool space to work in. Lots of creative professionals. We've been there a few times now, both for meetings and using the space as our own office, which I find is much more productive than working at home. It's definitely more of a professional style coworking space. Andy is both charismatic and hospitable. I'd recommend for anyone who is looking for a really professional office space where they can welcome clients easily for meetings and so forth.

                                    0 Thank Bernard
