Vibrant + Profitable Flexible Workspaces

Liberated Work is the pioneering consultancy on flexible workspaces and coworking spaces in Australia. With over a decade of experience, we have worked with leading Australian property groups, councils and state governments to imagine, design, and bring to life vibrant and profitable workspaces.

A coworking space is about more than just coffee, high-speed wifi and plants. It’s about the vibe, who you meet and how you connect.

Community Engagement

We’ve hosted hundreds of community events around Australia to effectively capture the feedback of the community (and potential customers), distill it into digestible material which your architect or delivery team can action. If your project requirements a Community Engagement component, talk to us about how we could support your team.

Case Study: NAB’s The Village


We have extensive experience with feasibility reports, business cases, and preparing to setup and launch a new shared workspace. Whether it’s the financial forecast, considerations when hiring or training new staff, or which operations platform to choose, we have direct experience operating coworking spaces around Australia.
