Here at Office Hub, we’re celebrating Queen Liz clocking another year with a special tribute to royal-standard shared office spaces.
This list is adorned with office spaces fit for a queen – some are styled with a British twist, some sit in English heritage buildings and some are just so luxurious they’re worth a royal shoutout. Because who doesn’t love a little celebration and long weekend in the name of Her Royal Majesty.

The Executive Centre
Governor Phillip Tower, Farrer Place, Sydney
Ready for a history lesson? This exclusive serviced office sits within one of the most prominent skyscrapers in the Sydney skyline with an impressive history linked directly to the royal family. The skyscraper sits on the site of Australia’s first government house, with actual remains of it at the northern end of the building . But, the key here, is that the original building was constructed by the arrival of the first British Fleet, along with the admiral of the Royal Navy Arthur Phillip, later named First Governor of NSW. You’ll find it near impossible to discover a high-end stylish office space with a better connection between British royalty and Australia. Besides the history behind the building itself, this office space includes spacious meeting room, communal areas and private offices in a luxurious style fit for royalty.
Northbourne Ave, Dickson, Canberra
We like to think of this one as the Prince Harry of office spaces – the fun, cheeky (better-looking) younger brother. This coworking hub is a lively space, with fully equipped offices and boardrooms, reception services, fast internet and free networking events – all within an office designed to inspire and invigorate. Coworking is renowned as a millennial way of working but really it’s perfect for anyone who loves socialising and a sense of community at their workplace. We reckon Harry would be the ideal coworking member.
