South Tribe was created by filmmakers Isabel Darling and Andrew Belk. Both freelancers working from our respective homes, we realised the only way to get the kind of space we and others had been talking about for years, was to build it.
The idea was simple: Create the space that WE wanted to work from. A place that fostered getting things done, but also allowed opportunities to be creative, be inspired and forge collaborations.
Like a lot of people, we really liked working from home. It’s comfortable, relaxed, you call the shots, and most of all - you are not in an office.
At the same time, it can be hard to get things done. Interruptions. Housework. Gardening. Kids. Isolation. Pyjamas at 1pm. Client meetings at cafes. Daytime TV. It’s easy to fool yourself. Working from home can be cheap, but it’s not necessarily good value.
Our vision was for a place that was as comfortable as home but as professional as an office. A place that lets you dag about, or dial it up, depending on what you have on and how you are feeling. Somewhere you can do your own thing, but also be social, forge collaborations or bounce some ideas.
Like you, we choose to live on the South Coast for a reason. South Tribe lets you keep all that, but brings that little bit of something else you have been looking for. If you know what we mean, come check out the space.
