Looking for your new work home?

Come and Join our Family.

In the heart of the Beaufort St district of Mount Lawley, surrounded by great burger joints, intimidatingly good coffee and loads of retail shops we have found a little nook to call our own.

150sqm of bright, naturally lit open space, filled with air purifying plants to create the ultimate zen zone for you to come work, hang and meet some of the locals.

From Day Passes to Dedicated Desks, Soto Community Hub is a coworking space that’s a little bit different.

We aren’t about boardrooms and private offices. We aren’t about working 24/7 and hustle, hustle, hustle. We are all about providing a cool, comfy environment for you to re-connect with your creative self so you can work optimally.

We offer a number of membership options from temporary to long term. Stop paying for 5 cups of coffee and trying to get a stable WIFI connection at coffee shops, just join our thriving community of entrepreneurs and digital nomads - unlimited coffee is a bonus!

Soto Co Inspiration

The Soto Co idea was born when our humble business began to grow. We needed a space for more staff, but weren’t sure a full office was required.

We searched high and low for a co-working or shared office space based close to the Perth CBD (but not within it!) North of the River with a nice relaxed vibe and not overly crammed with people.

Much to our surprise, we couldn’t find anything! The private offices available were expensive, and the hot desk / permanent desk options lacked any privacy.

So like any good idea, we decided to create what we felt the market needed! A cozy space to suit our needs, but also so that others like us would love.

Our open space pods are semi private & full of real, living plants. With individual stylish glass topped desks, your own drawers & storage and the ability to style your pod and make it your own.

We have the option to be flexible to your needs as well, if your team grows we can customize pods to suit.

Perks

Frequently Asked Questions

The Soto Co Community Hub is designed to meet the needs of its members. That said there are lots of things you might want to know before signing on.

We offer multiple tiers of membership: Private Desk Pods – Single Desk Private Desk Pods – Multi Desks (good for small teams) Hot Desks for part time memberships and occasional drop ins
Our Soto Co space is not stuffy and formal like an office can be. Instead we offer a relaxing and less intimidating atmosphere, which of course means less stress and more time to focus – without the demands of typical office life. We also have not crammed lots of desks in and we cap the amount of members we can have, to protect you from an oversubscribed, noisy, distracting office.
Coffee shops have long been the answer for freelancers and flexi timers who’ve found home offices uninspiring. There’s two problems here – firstly, they don’t always have the printers, plug points and other facilities you need to get the job done. Secondly, if you are sitting in a busy café for hours only ordering a few coffees and waters, and they are turning customers away who may have wanted to sit down for a meal, you are actually costing this business revenue, whilst churning through their WiFi and operational costs! Enter Soto Co: a lease-free, (guilt free) fully-equipped office that rents work space via different membership plans.
When you join a coworking space, you work independently with flexibility at your computer, either on shared desks in an open plan office or in private offices. Though you conduct your own business, you sometimes collaborate with other members on specific projects. In sharing the space, you benefit from the exchange of ideas and skills through networking with differing different industry sectors. You build meaningful relationships, exchange knowledge and share skills rather than working in isolation.
Much ado surrounds the hot topic of the future of work. Coworking spaces are popping up all over Australia and New Zealand and have become the future of work in terms of how companies are engaging spaces as a service verses traditional bricks and mortar. Gone are the days where you need to invest tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, in a work environment for your business. The coworking concept is a disruption to the traditional office space and it’s not just desks and chairs, its becoming a full, end-to-end concierge service. Agile working is the new frontier for companies. Deskmag, The Coworking Magazine, reports their global survey of members revealed 71% experienced a boost in creativity since joining a coworking space whilst 62% said their standard of work had improved. If you are looking to trial a space, you can start with a day pass, and see how you feel from there.
