Independent Studios was created in 2010 as a workspace for creative, independent businesses and freelancers in Melbourne. We aim to provide the most productive and cost effective office spaces for small businesses as they go through the various stages of growth.

We believe that every business needs a office location that actually empowers them for growth.  Whilst this could be being part of or swapping notes with a community, it is more likely to be having a desk area that makes you productive and enables clients to send more work your way..

Our community of almost 100 small and growing businesses love getting together for our regular coffee sessions and equally like to put their heads down and do what they do best – something we love to support with the right energy and a giant, clean white space.

Our office areas are spacious boasting beautiful natural sunlight. We offer a range of desking from full-time dedicated spaces to hot desks. We also offer private offices and team spaces for those who still want to be connected to the ‘hum’ but also want a degree of privacy.  Essentially we have 100 desks are available across 2 levels that can be organised into 8 different office configurations giving privacy and collaboration

A range of onsite assets such as meeting areas, rooms, boardtables, are available at not charge for internal members and can also be hired for external use at a nominal cost.

Use the form or get Andy on our chat popup to make an appointment to tour the site on Porter St, Prahran and see how Independent Studios coworking spaces can get to work to help your business.
