Nick and Naomi, young lovers straight from a Disney Pixar film, caught up in newly wedded bliss were driving each other crazy working together from home. All was not lost however, when Nick, remembering his Boston and London co working experiences in years gone by suggested to Naomi that Adelaide's eastern suburbs business community was ready and in great need for a coworking studio of its own.
And once the idea was born there was no stopping them.
Securing a studio lease right in the very heart of Norwood, they set about transforming the former dingy banking offices into a bright, light-drenched open plan studio. Complete with meeting room, skype booths, kitchen and bathroom facilities and gorgeous views out onto The Parade, That Space blossomed into being - a place they envisioned freelancers, startups and small business owners like themselves could thrive in a collaborative and motivating environment.
