Can you tell us about Yonder and its history so far?

It was a passion project for us that was born out of a love of climbing and making. We believe that the workspace and workshop alongside a climbing centre are a great match as creativity and movement go hand in hand. There is nothing better than a climb or a yoga session to break up your working day.

What is the mission behind Yonder?

To build a positive community space and to change the way people work and play.

Can you take us through your super exciting workspaces?

On the ground floor we have a well-equipped wood and metal workshop, on the top floor there are a variety of private offices, desk spaces and flexi desks. In between these two is a mezzanine that hosts artists and makers.
