    Environmentally friendly

    Our solar-powered, contemporary, purpose-built workspace was created with the assistance of the Sustainable Melbourne Fund.

    For the keen cyclists among us, Rubato Upstairs offers on-site bike-parking and shower facilities.

    And with Sydney Road trams and Anstey Station just around the corner, getting to work by public transport has never been easier.

    Featuring oodles of natural light and plenty of fresh air, Rubato Upstairs is geared to helping you do your best work in your own way.


    Rubato Upstairs presents a regular events program for both tenants and members of the local creative community, addressing topics related to working, thinking and thriving creatively.

    We also offer our tenants the opportunity to host their own events in the space, including networking events, training workshops, launches and photo shoots.

    Tenants also receive discounted access to a selection of performances at Tempo Rubato, a live classical music bar located downstairs on the ground floor of the building. Tempo Rubato hosts a wide variety of classical music performances on weekends, with all profits going to Piano Project – a Melbourne charity sponsoring piano lessons for children from refugee backgrounds.


    Rubato Upstairs is run by an onsite manager committed to fostering a dynamic, productive and supportive work environment for all tenants.
