Independent Studios Prahran is one of the oldest and largest coworking offices in Prahran, Melbourne with 100 onsite desks, 2 kitchens, an art gallery, 5 meeting zones or rooms, and the thing that makes people relax - sunshine. Since 2010 we have helped over 200 businesses take the next stage in their business growth from garage or home office into their own headoffice and business address. And the addition of an instant creative community is the benefit of deciding on a coworking environment over a stand alone lease.
Independent Studios Prahran is primarily a community of creative businesses and freelancers. We offer bright offices, workspaces, a range of desk types to suit all budgets, meeting rooms and all the facilities you need to run your business.
We are lucky enough to be in a large space that gives everyone a bit of elbow room. You can easily find a quiet corner or a busy one if you want to be energised. The building is in a converted factory and warehouse which visiting clients seem to appreciate.
