gapElectron Workshop is a technology collective and coworking space based in North Melbourne, which operates as a space and forum for intellectual thought, work, technology, learning, and exploration.

Built inside the former Bulla Cream truck repair warehouse, the space was renovated by the founders over a laborious nine month period in 2011.
