The Digital Era continues to transform the way we live and work, and does so on a global scale. Some places might be at the forefront, but eventually new standards and formats trickle down to the farthest corners of the globe. On the vast African continent, South Africa has one of the most advanced economies, and despite a number of challenging hurdles, the country shows plenty of signs that it’s gearing up for what’s happening next. The recently opened Glee At Work, a co-working space in Cape Town, is indicative of how a new generation of entrepreneurs prefers to work and do business. The venue is founded by husband-and-wife team Glen and Fee Ainsworth, and subsequently designed in collab with carpenter Bheki Dlamini, and occupies a unit at Somerset Square, a mixed-use complex in Green Point.

It’s an area of town best known for its nightlife scene and happening vibe, but increasingly also for funky new businesses by a new generation of entrepreneurs. Glee At Work targets entrepreneurs, start-ups and freelancers, offering a variety of work and meeting spaces with an easy pay-as-you-go payment system. Next to booth and so-called hot desk seating and mezzanine floor workspace, private office space and a board room are readily available. Each of the settings is light-filled, inviting and friendly, featuring an abundance of light timber paired with a palette of playful colours, funky artwork and lush plants throughout the premises. Location: Somerset Square, 55 Somerset Road, Unit 7C4 (Green Point).
