Watch this space

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - News -

Back to work for 2019 but nowhere to go? There’s more room at a South Perth co-work­ing space.

WITH the num­ber of par­ents work­ing from home on the rise, hav­ing a space where they can work while their chil­dren are cared for is in high de­mand.

To meet this need, South Perth-based Stu­dio 64 Group opened the first workspace with an on­site day care cen­tre in Aus­tralia in Jan­uary 2017.

Hav­ing been open al­most two years, the pop­u­lar­ity of the co-work­ing area has con­tin­ued to grow and pushed the need for a re­cent up­grade.

The space now caters for 10 peo­ple and dou­bles as a board­room and events space, with six pri­vate of­fices/meet­ing rooms suited to small busi­nesses, con­sul­tants and free­lancers.

Busi­ness man­ager Chris­tine Berger said it was im­per­a­tive Stu­dio 64 pro­vided work­ing space for busy fam­i­lies.

“Feed­back from our ex­ist­ing fam­i­lies in­di­cated that some busi­nesses pre­fer work­ing in a shared work space where they can in­ter­act with other busi­ness own­ers to share ideas and learn from each other,” she said.

“Other busi­nesses still re­quire and pre­fer the pri­vacy of a pri­vate of­fice.

“We wanted to adapt the spa­ces to meet the re­quire­ments of both, hence the con­ver­sion of some of­fice spa­ces into a ded­i­cated cowork­ing area.”
