Coworking FAQ

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.

Our space has different seating options based on whether you sign up to a friends (casual) or family (permanent) membership. Permanent desk spaces are available and mean you can leave all your stuff in the office like screens, cables and everything you would usually keep at your workspace.
Casual members take their belongings with them easy day, as they do not have a set desk, and will sit wherever is available on the day.
All members can utilise the lounges, breakout spaces and the communal areas as required needed.

Reception facilities are available 9:00am – 5:00pm – which is the same hours available to casual members. Family / permanent desk space members can use the office at any time. All members have a secure entry card.

Yes, for a quick casual meeting there is open space / lounges for you to sit and chat with a client or other members, you just need to be mindful that others will be able to hear your conversation.
There is also a Boardroom available for hire. Permanent members receive an allocation of meeting room credits and part time members can book the boardroom for a nominal fee of $45 + GST Per hour. This is a glass boardroom and can accommodate up to 8 people. We are also surrounded by fantastic cafes, restaurants and venues in Mount Lawley, so you can always choose to have coffee meetings locally (a great excuse to stretch your legs and get your steps up!).

Day passes are $45 (+GST) and grant you access to the Soto Co space from Monday – Friday, 9am-5pm. It’s here you’re able to work from any of the common areas and use our guest WiFi network while using a day pass.

This is an open plan office space so expect the rumblings of a vibrant and uplifting space. There is, however, an expectation that a level of professionalism and decorum within the formal office work area will be maintained during office hours.

Some of the facilities and amenities we have are as follows: collaboration areas, kitchens stocked with tea and coffee, 24/7 access and security, mail handling, IT, reception and business support services, printing, end-of-trip facilities and more.

Soto Co is a humble team of strategy and marketing professionals, bringing together diverse groups of freelancers, remote workers, small businesses, large corporations and other independent professionals in a unique shared office environment in the heart of Mount Lawley, WA.
We picked this location, because not everyone wants to work in the Perth CBD. Not everyone can afford a private, locked office in a coworking space (they’re bloody expensive!) but you may still want some privacy. We created our leafy green desk pods to be semi private, so you still get the benefit of being in open space, but what do you on your screen and your desk is your business. Create your own zen zone.
We have everything you need & want under one roof.

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

We have a variety of monthly membership options available click here to see more.

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.

Working at home in your PJs sounds like a dream … until the loneliness sets it.
It can also be difficult to knuckle down and get to work when you’re only commuting from your bed to the couch / kitchen table / spare bedroom. Without clear-cut office hours, there’s no automatic switch off come 5pm and work can easily spill into your down time.
Also – there is real evidence that being around other people can be beneficial for mental health and creativity. Even if you are only on a one day per week membership plan, you’ll see a difference in the way you work and the relationships you’ll create through our hub to help you on your journey.

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.

The simplest no commitment option is a day pass. A day pass is $45 per day and you can register online.
You can sign up for a community membership, which gives you 2 days per month access to the space for only $50 per month. Already much better value than individual day passes, and you get access to our online community, the amazing range of perks and you get your own business listing (if you so wish).

Security is very important to us. Each centre is equipped with a CCTV monitoring system that operates around the clock and members have their own private storage in their desk pods. All guests must sign-in electronically, all permanent members must provide ID and bond to ensure we know who is in the space. During office hours we will always have staff available to ensure you and your items are protected.
Outside operational hours, all entrance and exits, including meeting rooms are locked and access is only possible using an access card. Further information on security can be found in our terms and conditions.

Perfectly located next door to famous Lawleys bakery where you’ll find an amazing selection of breakfast and lunch foods, we are also across the road from Meet & Bun burgers, 2 Fat Indians, Little B Thai, Edz Ikakaya Japanese, Tommasinos Italian and an IGA are all within a 1 minute walking distance. You will be in the heart of the Beaufort Street strip, so enjoy top-notch dining and amazing coffee right on your doorstep!

Another paradigm shift in workplace requirements is the move towards wellness, mindfulness and wellbeing.
Wellness in the workplace is encouraging a healthy state of mind and we do that in a bunch of different ways.
To support this, as part of our perks, we offer yoga and meditation discounts in the studio underneath our office, Studio Pilates.

Yes! Yes, they are! We have invested in beautiful, indoor plants for aesthetics and air purification. We have professionals come and take care of the plants, so you don't have to worry about taking care of them, watering them or them dying (unlike when some of us have indoor plants at home!)

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.

The closest train station to our office is the Mount Lawley train station, it is a 7 minute drive, 15 minute walk. There are CBD train stations where you can catch the 950 bus straight down Beaufort Street also.

Tours or a trial day must be scheduled in advance. Simply complete an online enquiry form here, give our Community team a call on 08 6478 1813 or email us at hello@sotogroup.co

We work a little differently to most spaces. One of the cool things about Soto Co is that you can sign up for a rolling monthly package so you’re not locked into anything long-term if you don’t want to be.

For part-time members you can change your package up or down utilising your member platform as long as it is within 7 days before your next billing period.

Part-Time and Full-Time Cancellations require one calendar month (30 calendar days) written notice to move out and should be sent via email to hello@sotogroup.co

It is also worth noting that discounts are available if you sign for six or twelve months’ membership. Ask our Community Staff about the discounts available for long term rental.  

We love animals, but we also need to be mindful of fellow members in the space. So pets are considered on a case by case basis and the following should be used as a guide to whether your pet would be suitable for the space:

  • Option for pets is only available to Permanent desk members
  • Pets must be house-broken.
  • We would need to have pets come in for a trial day to see how they are around other members.
  • An additional pet bond will be required ($250 refundable)
  • Your pet will need to stay by your desk, not roam the office. If you leave your desk / the property for more than 10 minutes, so must your pet
  • If a pet is being disruptive, noisy, or destructive in any way, staff can ask the member to remove the pet from the space.

If you are looking for shared office space in Perth for you and your pet, talk to our team about the options available. If approved you will be provided with a full set of pet rules upon sign up.

Community is at the heart of what we do here at Soto Co. We host a mix of events for members and like-minded folk on a regular basis, including:

  • Movers & Shakers Mondays (advisory sessions for members and the wider Perth community). Once a month, you can come into Soto Co for a free afternoon of co-working followed by a dedicated one-hour session (4 – 5pm) with our Business gurus, Matt & Arna, on hand to help navigate your business queries and answer your questions. 
  • Member lunches and Friday arvo drinks. A great opportunity to celebrate the week, share successes and meet fellow members in a relaxed, fun setting.
  • Monthly Book Club taking place on the last Friday of every month, open to members and local book worms.
  • Evening sessions hosted by Soto Group Gurus and guest speakers. We run a range of intimate workshops covering key business trends, social & cultural topics, and larger workshop style weekend events.

Yes! We have referral options available for anyone who knows someone who might need a coworking space!

For Members - Our referral program rewards members with $20 referral credit on your account for every new member that signs up. There are no limits to the number of referral rewards a member may earn.

For Non-Members – We can offer $20 credit towards a membership package of your choice, credits to brand agency / website design projects with Soto Group or give you a $20 visa gift card!
