The Bridge Street Collective is an award-winning co-working space in Central Nelson.
Established in 2011, the Collective was the first of its kind in Nelson—and remains the only co-working space in the city.
We rent open-plan desk spaces and self-contained offices with casual and permanent membership options available. We also rent our meeting room by the hour or by the day.
The co-working space offers fibre internet over wifi and ethernet as well as kitchen facilities, meeting room and, for permanent members, SRA3 printer/copier and 24/7 keycard access.
The café is open to members and the public and is a favourite amongst many Nelsonians with its fantastic coffee, freshly-made food, great ambiance and free wifi.
An inspiring community
A co-working space is much more than just the building it is located in.
The key to a great co-working space is its community. This is something that can't be created overnight and takes time to nurture and develop.
Our community is vital to the growing success of the Collective and we have a number of initiatives running that help to establish and grow our community.
Some of the things we do for our members and wider community
- Wednesday Morning Tea
- Free Desk Fridays
What people are saying...
The Bridge Street Collective has not only been instrumental in helping me find work in Nelson after moving here from Auckland,
it has helped me to establish a great network of people in my industry by offering a central meeting point for groups such as the Nelson web meet up.

Nelson is extremely lucky to have a world class co-working space in the heart of the CBD. It's a great cost effective opportunity for a startup or small creative business that requires a beautiful and functional space that offers potential for exciting collaboration between complimentary tenants.

(S)CRAP is an exhibition of paintings by Yvette Byrd, drawings by William Henry Meung and jewellery by Stella Chrysostomou.
The exhibition currently on show in the Bridge Street Collective Café is a kind collision of Mandy Preston’s skills – she’s the manager of the café as well as the artist behind the striking oils and acrylics hanging on the walls.
One of the Bridge Street Collective’s newest members is developing an innovative website based on a peer-to-peer transactional model. Hayley Kyte recently moved to Nelson from Queenstown and is has just launched her new dog sitting website Patme.com.
