    Welcome to Residency Studios! Our beautiful, centrally located co-working space is growing, so we’re glad you found us.

    Located just off the Johnston Street stop on the 96 Tram, the space is situated on the corner of

    Nicholson & Kerr Streets in Fitzroy. There are countless great cafes to choose from, but we’ll

    use this as an opportunity to make a shameless plug for two of our local favourites, RRiot

    House (next door) and Mile End Bagels.

    Now for a bit more about the space:

    ● Full of natural light with an expanding indoor plant collection

    ● A modern fit-out, but the historical character of the space is retained by a lovely exposed

    brick wall

    ● A kitchen and break-out area that is consistently topped up with design magazines and

    the latest print edition of Broadsheet

    ● Coffee & tea facilities

    ● Two bathrooms and showers

    ● Tons of storage and a spacious desk layout

    ● A podcast studio in the back - normally used by a production studio called Nearly, but

    also available for hire

    The people:

    ● An inclusive group of genuinely nice people who do everything from Graphic Design,

    Podcast Production, Architectural Drafting, Architectural Photography and Interior

    Design (ok, we get that there is a bit of a theme here, but we’re all about diversity so

    we’d love to bring in some different perspectives)

    ● Good banter, but everyone is also hustling and respects the space & quiet to deliver

    great work

    ● Friday lunchtime pies and knock-off drinks either in the studio or at another local

    favourite, Marquis of Lorne!


    ● Desks are available to rent at $110/week

    ● Rates include GST and will cover all bills, desk/chair, facilities, key & access

    ● Group rates available if you’re looking for more than one desk (currently 4 available)

    If you have any other questions or want to drop by the space, we’d love to hear from you!
