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.
Winner of the 2012 Emerging Business Award
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 gig-a-bit 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.
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
- Morning tea every morning
- After work drinks
- Promotion and Marketing
- Free trial day
What people are saying...
I love coming into The Collective to work. There are so many inspiring people who work and enjoy this space. Christine, The Collective's studio manager is awesome, too—she has made The Collective feel like a home away from home.

This place has worked wonders for my business connectivity. After just three months working here, I’ve got four new clients, collaborated on a handful of awesome projects and made connections with so many other promising people. I’d like to say it was all down to my charm. But in truth, Christine (The Collective’s head honcho) has been the driving force behind it, whether that’s by introducing me to people looking for my services, or dropping my name to local business owners. Thanks C!

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.

It started out like every morning tea. The members crowd around the table, bringing chairs, shuffling over with laughter to squeeze in more people. It was a Wednesday morning that impacted my life forever.
Today, we had our first Lunch & Learn. An intentional time of getting together and talking in depth of what we do, and why we do it. Here are some the highlights from our lunch.
If you work from home or work remotely, you might be interested in joining a coworking space. We take on all the overheads, burnt light bulbs, bills and hassles so you can come into a collaborative work environment, build your networks and be inspired all at the same time!
2332 days have passed since taking on this journey of Co-Working. We reflect on the most amazing days as we've witnessed Nelson Businesses grow and develop out of the Collective.
