Quality, prestige and a conducive working space forms the cornerstone of Gravity located in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD. The fit out and furnishing is the first thing that will strike guests first with a traditional corporate building space being enhanced with high quality interior appointments.

Built for creatives by creatives. Workroom is the brainchild of Catherine Roberts who also runs her own online interior design store, Showroom. The coworking space Workroom is housed within Showroom so it’s little wonder how polished the the fit out is. The goal like most other coworking spaces is to foster collaboration amongst likeminded people whilst providing a chic platform to conduct meetings and anything else to launch a business. Don’t like working indoors? They have a breezy verandah space to sort you out along with free WiFi and kitchen facilities laden with tea.
104 Edward St, Brisbane
It’s bright, quirky and exactly what some are looking for when it comes to inspiration. The Coterie comes as part of QUT’s Creative Enterprise hub, hence the younger vibe of the decor. The space is conveniently located in the Brisbane CBD with close proximity to public transport. Facilities here include hot desks, private desks, quick Wi-Fi and boardroom with conference capabilities. Most importantly though are they people that make up the space – teams, sole traders, and entrepreneurs in music, interactive media, fashion and gaming industries.
