I started my first business when I was 21 but I always struggled to find the right creative space for my new ventures. Either the Landlord wanted a long lease or were not keen on new businesses.
So when we started creating the Nook it was important to me that not only was it a creative space but that we were super flexible.
The Nook building was purpose built by my father back in 1989 where he manufactured trucks. When the company expanded and outgrew the premises my father and brother moved to a state of the art facility nearby. This allowed the Nook to fulfill its destiny as it is today while preserving its original roots.
When we started converting the Old Truck Factory into the Nook we were determined to maintain its history and keep the Industrial Factory feel. You can see this in the way we have carved out individual spaces, each with unique and quirky details for people to enjoy working in.
Our mission is to put a stop to the dull and mundane office space which can cramp your style and imagination/ creativity. We give businesses the physical space or virtual services they need to build their own unique empire.
I am a bit of a foodie and always found eating proper food while working was difficult, which is why the Canteen was born. We serve awesome food which is local, fresh, veggie, vegan or anything in between.
But if there is something I love as much as food, it's Coffee. We spent a lot of time making sure that we also serve the best coffee in town.
At the end of 2018, we started to put together the ministry of big ideas. This was to include proper real-world information to help people start and maintain their business but still in the quirky way that we do things at the Nook. for more information
