Electron Workshop is a co-lab designed to sustain an independent and multidisciplinary group of workers and thinkers. We are a community which nurtures and supports the search for new ideas, change, work, and an exploration of the outer limits.
Electron Workshop is housed inside 285sqm converted warehouse in North Melbourne, featuring 30 coworking desks, 40 person popup microcinema, and a changeable event, presentation & learning space.
Working from home? Working for someone else? Take the plunge and join a community of people who have the choice of working anywhere, yet choose Electron Workshop to work independently but together.
The Workshop features a full kitchen, fussball table, shower, air conditioning, natural gas heating, bike racks and 100% green energy. We’re connected by 10mbit/10mbit symmetrical EFM, and Meraki balanced WIFI, where we can seat up to 30 thoughtful persons.
