Comprised of hot desks, meeting rooms and offices, Due North is a chic new co-working hub based in Sydney’s northern beaches. Set up by a family of creatives including an urban artist, oil painter, landscape designer, two graphic designers and a new media producer, the inspiring space is about as far from a soulless office as you could get.
The heritage listed hub is surrounded sports many original features such as cherry wood and a tranquil sage green colour scheme. “Hot desks, suites, a meeting room and common areas connect to a generous curved corridor, allowing for an open flow and dispersion of natural light,” says Due North Workspaces director Zoe Ritch.
“The hot desks are spread out over two rooms in an open plan layout, providing clean, generous workspaces from which to conduct business. There’s an abundance of natural light, indoor plants and a leafy outlook, providing a connection to the sanctuary outside,” says Zoe.
The meeting room is particularly gorgeous – the stylish space is a homage to the maritime industry and has the feel of a boutique hotel created with a large vintage table paired with six wishbone chairs.
“What unites us, apart from blood, is that we happily reside on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and no longer compromise our lives to commute to work in a corporate office in the city,” says Zoe of the workspace that, while being situated on Manly’s picturesque north head, has excellent proximity to Manly’s centre and the city too – regular ferries provide connectivity to the city.
“The Northern Beaches have come into their own recently, producing a fast growing succession of talented entrepreneurs and businesses, with an effortlessly chic sense of style, an ecological awareness, healthy lifestyle and slightly slower pace of life. New business on the beaches, for many has been conducted casually from the dining table and the café,” says Zoe.
