Kindred Studios is a coworking space that spills off creativity. Stand at the entrance and this lively space will look nothing less than a college campus or a cafeteria. But take a few steps within and a surprise awaits you. For, it is artsy and fun-filled yet a professional space. If you ask about the environs, there’s a mashup of art, ideas and collaborations. In fact, ‘meet, share and create’ must be the motto of this coworking space. No doubt, Kindred Studios has emerged as a hub for artists and digital nomads of Yarraville, Melbourne.
Kindred Studios is rightly dubbed as one of the coolest coworking spaces in Australia. Owned and operated by artists, they are also the venue of Victoria University Music Programs since a decade.

Kindred Studios Coworking Prices
Kindred offers hot desks, dedicated desks and much more beyond normal coworking spaces. The membership plans are flexible and are available at easy weekly or monthly payments. My advice is, book your memberships in advance, especially if you seek casual access. This is for the reason that this space is generally full, and an impromptu visit might go waste. In fact, Kindred Studios allow you to check and book the casual pass on their website as well. Make use of it.
If your coworking need is limited to a few days in a month, drop in casually with this day pass. Priced at $30 per day, it will get you access to a hot desk in the shared area. The hot desks are temporary work desks and are available on first come first serve basis. DO check the availability of hot desks, as these are generally full here. A pre-booking at Kindred Studios will be beneficial for this membership.

Need more permanency with your space? Get a dedicated desk at Kindred Studios for a weekly price of $95, but paid monthly. The dedicated desk will be reserved only for you till your membership term.
