Why The Hangar
Because the home office is not all it's cracked up to be! Life partners, husbands, wives, and children everywhere know what it's like when you're at home, but not really "home". There, but not really "there". This way, whatever you do for a living, you can come to work, do your work well, in the company of people with similar motivations and complementary skills - and go home at the end of the day.
Because we believe there are better alternatives to working in a conventional office, trying to hang it all together at home, or trying any one of the other weird and wonderful permutations of modern work.
Because we’re a wee bit sceptical of the benefit of being online 24/7, connected at all times to everything - including the very latest Facebook update from people you’ve long since forgotten! We reckon we work better when work is at work...and home is at home.
Because we think a big part of effective “work” is “not work” - knowing when you’re OFF, knowing your work is done, and you can relax. Hike, ski, read, watch movies, do whatever you want - but it’s all better knowing your work has been done well.
Because we know that even lone guns do better work in company. You’ll be amazed at the productivity increase you’ll experience surrounded by a tight community of likeminded people. Our members include entrpreneurs, designers, small companies, writers, software engineers, developers, digital marketers, website makers, sales reps, & travellers who need somewhere to hang their hat for a while...so as you can imagine, there are a lot of advantages in the synergies to be found here. And far more entertaining social events too!
Because Queenstown is a small place, and it’s fun to have a community of interesting people doing interesting things!
Because we have this big sprawling building in Arthur’s Point, stunning views, plenty of character, plenty of history…and wanted to do something cool with it!
We are fostering a community of creative independents and entrepreneurs who hang out together in real time, cheer each other on, share resources, collaborate and support each other. You can be part of it if you want!
New connections, a balanced life, a thriving business, a vibrant community centre… what's not to like? We’ve created all this because we want to see you succeed. Nothing would make us happier.
We're turning this community into the ultimate co-working space anywhere in the world. It's not about "us", it's about "we". Obviously it's a great time and a great space toget your work done. That's a given. But we're here to help you get your work done better...to learn, grow, make your own dreams come true...
"the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible"
...and have fun on the way! What's to like?
