This story begins on a regular Brisbane afternoon where I found myself working alone out of my bedroom. Feeling lonely and unmotivated I decided then and there that I wanted to create a public space that would offer a more engaging work environment for freelancers. This was back in 2011, and in those days, the concept of co-working spaces was quite foreign to Brisbane and definitely not a term on my radar. Rather, my vision was built around a love of the boutique coffee culture in Australia, and wanting to address a hole in the market for cafes that provided internet access or long-term seating.

I wanted my space to capture the best of a cafe environment fused with public friendly studio facilities. We offered Internet, hot desks, private studios and private boardroom facilities all within a cafe environment for workers of all kind.

It became a professional and accessible space to meet clients, while also having all the tools required to set up work for the day. I strongly believe that getting out to refresh the mind helps ideas grow, and provides energy to complete the tasks at hand. On the flip side, I wanted the cafe aspect to offer a place for people to meet, relax and take a break in their day to recharge. The balance of the two sides, work & play, became The Rabbit Hole, a combination co-work space and coffee shop.

Our build was very hands-on. We moved into a space with incomplete walls, no floors or ceilings, it was even missing the back door. We managed to get our hands dirty and work with our amazing builder to make the space our own.
