Labs help­ing achieve a bal­anced work life

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

ACHIEV­ING a bal­anced work and home life can prove chal­leng­ing for peo­ple who free­lance or work out­side an of­fice.

But a new fa­cil­ity in Vic­to­ria Park, launched late last month, is aim­ing to pro­vide professionals with the right space to achieve max­i­mum pro­duc­tiv­ity.

Co-Lab­o­ra­to­ries pro­vides rooms for peo­ple to work au­tonomously, hold meet­ings and brain­storm cre­ative ideas.

Ben Cur­rell is one-third of the cre­ative team be­hind CoLab­o­ra­to­ries, along­side Michael Haynes and Barn­aby Ni­chols.

“It’s been a pretty quick process – Barn­aby and Michael came up with the idea in a bar in Fre­man­tle in Fe­bru­ary,” Mr Cur­rell said.

“Since then, fol­low­ing the ap­proval and sup­port from the Town of Vic­to­ria Park, it has been a flurry of sand­ing, screw­ing, paint­ing and re­ar­rang­ing.

“Vic­to­ria Park has a vi­brant iden­tity and an es­tab­lished base of small busi­nesses, en­trepreneurs, stu­dents and artists.

“The at­mos­phere in­side the space is com­fort­able, con­struc­tive and open.”
