Independent Studios offers beautiful desks and offices, shared spaces and coworking areas for Melbourne-based creative freelancers, entrepreneurs,  and small businesses. We are a semi serviced business centre housing a collection of creative businesses across web, design, marketing, audio visual, startup advisory, advertising, and animation businesses.

We know creative businesses want to work amongst other freelancers and entrepreneurs – for contacts, resourcing, and to shoot the breeze about misbehaving clients or awesome budgets. They generally don’t like to work amongst sales based businesses and they want room to grow as they grow. That’s why we offer a range of office and desk layouts to suit their changing businesses.


> Larger group workspaces

Holding up to 6 people or combine together to hold 12 desks – perfect for temporary office space for companies transitioning between office sites during renovation.

> Medium workspaces

holding 4-6 desks – ideally for startups who are in growth mode but don’t want to tie down to a fixed commercial lease when staff numbers are undecided.

> Hot desks

Many creatives, such as freelance web designers or marketers, now only need a laptop and are comfortable working between multiple locations. For these professionals we offer hot desks.

> Duo workspaces

Perfect for traditional creative teams such as writers and art directors who want to work alongside each other and have a degree of separation from others in the office and some corporate identity.

> Coworking spaces

Many businesses specifically aim to be situated within a coworking office space for the obvious benefits of contacts, business hum and ‘just the vibe’ really. We try and allocate desks that are conducive to meeting related businesses within a coworking environment. Find out more.

> Single desks

Locations vary between light filled sparse desk areas or busy, hive like startup zones. Freelancers and entrepreneurs who rent desks at Independent Studios are able to upgrade or downgrade depending upon their own business conditions. Find out more.

> Virtual desks

As a great entry point for many startups is virtual desking which allows you a business address or base for client reference plus some time in a hot desk but not tied to a larger package.

> Virtual offices

Some businesses require the benefits of a fixed office address and a place near Melbourne to come together on an ad hoc basis. Independent Studios Prahran offers virtual offices with the possibility to book meeting rooms or workspaces as needed.

> Gallery Spaces

Displayed in the upper floor adjoining the main board room the Indepstudios Gallery Space showcases feature works from designers, photographers and artists.

> Temporary offices

We often house large businesses in transition – by providing dedicated space or hot desks spread throughout the building. Find out more about the temporary office spaces.

Meeting rooms & spaces

We have 5-6 meeting spaces ranging from 2 person outdoor space to 10 person boardtable or 4 person closed room locations. Or a lounge – bookable for a snooze.
