About Us

We are redefining the work place experience in Cairns

Art Work Spaces is the smart new place for premium, flexible workspaces in Cairns.
We have stylish, bespoke offices, coworking desks and virtual offices.

With the very latest in Technology, this is the Future of Work.

The choice is yours.

Thriving Location

With an enviable CBD location, Art Work Spaces is perfectly positioned alongside the new Cairns Gallery Precinct.

Doing business in Cairns couldn’t get any easier. Art Work Spaces is a step away from businesses, shopping, fine hotels, Esplanade Dining Precinct & lagoon and the Convention Centre.

@36 Abbott – creativity and professionalism blend to craft a new dynamic source of inspiration and energy.

The Building

A joyous collage of material, craft & geometry.

The two-storey high street canopy screen and hanging vertical elements presumptive of the region’s rainforest elements brought into an urban environment.

The bounding elements to the heritage-listed courthouse gardens present a timeless sculptural screen facade with the practicality of screening sunlight, manipulating light and shadow.

The Art

Showcasing an eclectic collection of Australian paintings, primitive carvings and sculptures, AWSome murals, icons of the sixties and seventies industrial design, redundant technology from another generation all keeping company with the textured material elements of the building.

The Community

Our Values are embedded in our everyday operations – integrity, collaboration, innovation and hospitality – and we go the extra mile to blend these to create an AWSome Community.

Our Communal Kitchens are purposefully designed as a place for people to meet and chat.

Our Community Calendar is full of social events providing opportunities to learn new things, get to know other Members and find out what they actually do and celebrate birthdays and special occasions.

Community Portal

Members and the  AWS Team are all connected through our  Community Portal – AWSome Connect.

You can use  AWSome Connect to search and chat with other Members, manage your Membership, billing details and submit tickets, requests and questions to the  AWS Team.

You can book meeting rooms quickly and easily.
You can learn more about upcoming and past events.


We have teamed up with great partners to deliver state of the art technology.
Enter the building and your space using Salto Electronic Access on your mobile phone or FOBs.

Connectivity is critically important. High speed internet is provided via a dedicated fibre optic connection combined with Dual NBN internet failover. Every membership plan includes Tier 1 Standard Wi Fi. The Ubiquity Wi Fi Network gives extensive coverage.

Customisable data and VoiP Telephony solutions are available for private offices.


36 Abbott St is not just an environmentally responsible and resource-efficient building, but it also integrates health, wellness and human experience in the building.

228 LG Highest Efficiency Solar Panels have been installed thereby significantly reducing Members’ energy costs.

The very latest Daikin Smart Air Conditioning System provides clean, efficient and superior comfort. All private offices are individually monitored to maximise efficiency and reduce costs.

Living Work of Art

Here at Art Work Spaces, hundreds of plants have been artfully curated into a spectacular two-storey high living work of art.

Making a bold statement, this 5.4m x 4.8m wall is the first and largest of its kind in Cairns, pushing temperatures down and productivity up, against a backdrop of cool and calm.

A green wall is said to provide environmental benefits to a busy work place like
Art Work Spaces.
