Shared Office Space Melbourne
Shared Office Spaces
We offer shared office space at three locations across the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
What is a shared office space?
Whether you’re launching a new small business with your best mate or need more space for your business after hiring great talent, a shared office space is great for your team’s internal collaboration and communication.
With a healthy mix of seclusion and the option to step out into the collaborative coworking space and mingle, shared office spaces provide an exclusive incubation space for your team while allowing for the creation of valuable relationships with other businesses.
Why shared office space?
With small shared offices for two right through to large shared offices for 50, we provide spaces that work for you now and can grow to suit your needs as you continue to succeed.
Shared office spaces are perfect for businesses that find working across several permanent desks, spread out over a floor, too difficult and disjointed in the transfer of ideas.
Team communication can be hard when the team isn’t all together, so Waterman allows flexibility in your work environment so that you can transfer easily into bigger workspaces.
In addition to all the above, your shared office space will have high speed internet, phone connection, desks and chairs for your team, access to the communal bathrooms, kitchen and recreational spaces, plus the benefit of having your shared office cleaned so that you always walk into work to a presentable workspace!
Is a shared office space right for me?
Here’s some of the possible reasons why a shared office could be right for you.
- You are looking for a professional workspace to meet clients and hold team meetings.
- You’ve just started to hire and your team are crowded around your dedicated desk.
- You’ve hired staff and being spread out over numerous desks hinders communication.
- Paying for multiple desks outweighs one shared office.
- You may work for a large corporate company and find yourself in need of a satellite office space.
These are just a few examples of people who will benefit from a shared office space.

The beauty about calling a Waterman centre home is the abundance of common area and shared space you get so you’re never restricted to work from one space. This means you’ll have access to kitchen facilities, business lounges, break out spaces and more as a part of your package, and the ability to book private meeting & event spaces as you require them.
A dedicated desk in our coworking space is perfect for one person with plenty of space, but there isn’t much space for two! The good news is that your desk is allocated to you only, so you don’t have to worry about sharing.
Your Dedicated Desk comes with both an ergonomic office chair so you’re never forced to sit on the floor and a lockable storage unit (attached to your desk) so you can store your valuables without worry! You also have multiple power points, physical signage printed and an access pass all included in your set-up fee.
Dedicated Desks at Narre Warren currently do not have lockable storage units.
Our friendly leasing team will discuss the best seating arrangement with you based on your needs and our availability.
Of course! All dedicated desks come with parking however depending on the centre, the type of parking included will vary. In addition to this all desks come with unlimited ultra-fast Wi-Fi with current speeds of up to 1000/1000Mbps so you won’t need an ethernet port!
We pride ourselves on the variety of our business community and the collaborative feel in our centres. That means at any given time you could be working alongside any number of local and global businesses that use our coworking spaces from a varying range of industries. Professional services, those in creative fields and everything in between operate from our co-working area.
The co-working area changes on a day to day basis! Some days there is a real buzz in our coworking area and other days everyone is super focused. If this is a concern for you, we encourage you to book a tour and come into the centre to get a feel for it yourself. Regardless, we do have dedicated quiet coworking areas where you can really buckle down and work in peace if you feel the main coworking area isn’t too your liking. That’s the beauty of flexible workspaces!
Included in your Dedicated Desk package is an access pass which grants your 24/7 access to all Waterman centres so you can work where you want. Our centres are also staffed during business hours (Mon-Fri 9am to 5pm) but we still recommend you carry your access pass so you can get around with ease.
Included in your Dedicated Desk package is a physical mail box which you can use to have all your business mail delivered to. Our friendly service team will sort and deliver your mail as it arrives and place it in your locked mail box.
You will be billed on a monthly basis via direct debit for your Dedicated Desk as well as any additional spend (such as meeting room bookings, printing, etc) you may accrue throughout the month.
Included in your package are basic reception services (such as mail sorting, meeting and greeting of your clients and a land line number with call forwarding to your mobile) but all Waterman packages come with access to upgrade and get even more value out of your monthly plan such as a virtual receptionist, printing, wireless handsets, server rack space and other technical services.
As you’ve probably noticed by now, we’re all about community! That means we encourage each and every member to attend the myriad of community events and online resources we put on throughout the year to help you connect, collaborate and grow with likeminded business people.
