Ideas Cartel opens stylish coworking space in Stellenbosch

Book a boardroom, work from a hot desk + get all the Ideas Cartel benefits

Last updated: 30 August 2022

Ambassade by Ideas Cartel is the most intimate of all the Ideas Cartel coworking spaces. It feels like a slice of home with its vintage wooden tables, leather chairs and a quiet courtyard snuggled between the office rooms and boardrooms. It’s the kind of place in which you would imagine a young Johann Rupert would have a business meeting.

Ambassade is located at De Wagenweg Office Park on the outskirts of Stellenbosch. Image: Ideas Cartel


All Ideas Cartel co-working spaces, premium work-and-play hubs,  foster connection, collaboration, whether you are a freelance content creator or a CEO with 150 employees. 

There are currently 5 Ideas Cartel spaces across the Cape, from Cape Town’s inner city to Stellenbosch and Muizenberg, as well as a newly opened office in Claremont.

Ideas Cartel also offers accommodation at Old Foundry, Cartel House and Casa Labia. Image: Ideas Cartel


Ambassade has a warmer, less industrial atmosphere than the spaces you find in the city. There’s warm blue walls and moody colours and plush couches. The floor-to-ceiling windows let soft sunlight creep into your office nook, and often you’ll here slow jazz wafting over the working-day hustle. 

There are numerous boardrooms and offices to rent out for your team, as well as hot desks, ideal for freelancers and those travelling through the Winelands, with desks payable per day or month.

You’ll see everything from an executive in a suit, to a photoshoot by the coffee bar and a dog rolling around on the cowhide rug of its owner’s office. The meeting rooms are bookable on the Ideas Cartel app.

Ambassade also offers change rooms and showers. Image: Ideas Cartel


Ambassade is situated on the outskirts of Stellenbosch, close to all the major routes going in and out of the town, with notable neighbours like the Rupert Museum. It is open all day, every day, and has 24/7 security, Fibre wifi and free parking for those working there. 

Ambassade is fully functional during load shedding. Image: Ideas Cartel


If you’re feeling snackish or in need of a break, Ambassade has a small café at the entrance of the co-working space. It serves smoothies and light snacks such as croissants, chips, chocolates, coffees and cold drinks. You can choose between the sunny nook inside, with wicker chairs, or get some fresh air and sit on the benches by the entrance outside.

The cafeteria is open Mondays to Thursdays. Image: Ideas Cartel


There are great benefits to joining the Cartel Members Club, which gives access to the Ideas Cartel ecosystem of coworking spaces, lounges, boutique hotels, restaurants, rooftop pools and more across multiple locations. 

It offers facilitated introductions across one of the most vibrant entrepreneurial networks, with exclusive access to The Founders Lounge at the Loop Street location, and the Frontier Bar, at the Old Foundry space. Members also receive preferential booking and discounted rates across all of the brand’s hotels, and a host of other perks and benefits.

Members can get access to coworking spaces in London, Soho, and Stockholm by simply notifying the Cartel Members Club. Image: Ideas Cartel
