Midtown Workplace in Brisbane’s CBD delivers a sustainable and adaptable model that accommodates new ways of working for an increasingly distributed workforce.

Spanning 9 levels, the workplace is within an adaptive reuse development that merges two ex-government buildings into a single A-Grade tower.

The brief – create a nimble workplace that will adapt to the evolution and progression of our client’s business, their story, and their connection with their community.

Armed with the principles of connection and evolution, we transformed these values into two tangible design features. The first – a central atrium fringed with planting and drenched in daylight, anchored by an auditorium at its base. The second – a central high-street providing an activated thoroughfare that promotes serendipitous exchange and curates’ moments of discovery and innovation.

“The design of Midtown Workplace highlights the importance of place and human connection in an increasingly virtual world. Underpinned by the conceptual narrative of exploration, the workplace is a magnet to foster innovation, collaboration, and connection.” Brooke Lloyd, COX Director

The new workplace explores an alternative to standard workspaces, creating a diverse and blended model that is supported by a high proportion of hackable, collaborative areas. 30% of the primary work points are moveable, affording teams complete autonomy and control over their workspace.

‘The Pit’, a magnet for cultural exchange, is a space for our client’s team to gather as a whole and galvanise their vibrant culture.

A highly mobile organisation with a vast global network, our client’s required an agile approach to technology and connectivity. Responsive meeting room bookings and occupancy technology was trialled throughout a customised POC process and seamlessly integrated into the fit out.
