zulustar 1


Zulustar has been expanding rapidly, and needed additional space to grow and expand. They saw this as an opportunity to get start-up businesses into the space, to offer a creative and collaborative environment where everyone could pool resources to empower each other’s businesses.The space was designed by BMJ Designs to look like a laboratory, which reflects Zulustar’s brand The LAB; hence the clean white high gloss flooring and finishes with black accents. They try to fill the desk space with small businesses that have synergies with the existing share desk tenants as well as individuals that contribute to the creative energy of the space.


The Zulustar Head office is at 65 Wale Street Cape Town.
