    About the space:

    I'm Suzy Tuxen and I run A Friend of Mine Design Studio. I established the space in Curtin House a few years ago in the middle of the city in Swanston Street. The space is really bright with pale floors to reflect the light. We have windows on 3 sides and lots of plants (they've grown bigger since these initial pictures!). It's great for small businesses, web developers or writers, we have a shared meeting table which we can book to avoid clashes (rarely happens). There's a little kitchenette and fridge available, and we're in the same building as Rooftop Bar, Cookie and the Toff in town so great for meetings either in the space or over or a burger / wine! 

    Fresh clean white walls

    Lots of natural light heaps of windows. 

    Very pale grey painted floor

    Beautiful plywood boxes for shelving and storage + ply desks from Like Butter

    Reclaimed timber meeting table and danish chairs

    Plywood storage/feature wall

    Rope screen to discreetly hide our kitchen while allowing plenty of light through 

    LOTS of greenery and indoor plants (which are bigger than photos now)

    The space would suit someone in creative industries/web/press/comms or other. We have plenty of storage in bookshelves and drawers are provided for each workstation. Unfortunately we can't provide super large storage facilities (i.e.. for large camera equipment etc) so if you need to store big things this won't be for you! 

    Lease Includes:

    One 1200 mm x 700 mm desk space,

    brand new office chairs and storage drawers

    storage and shelving

    access to kitchen and bathroom in adjoining space 

    internet, electricity, water and outgoings all included,

    use of meeting space

    swipe key for access 

    all furniture is provided - all you need to do is bring yourself and a computer, if you're so inclined.

    APOLOGY NOTE: Sorry, Also, we'd rather not have graphic designers apply seeing as there is already one design business in the space.
