Aurecon’s 25 King workplace creates a home for its people, clients, collaborators and visitors. Located in Australia’s tallest and largest engineered timber building, the workplace signifies a deep connection with Aurecon’s commitment to sustainability, innovation and to providing the best environment for its people.
The ground floor is home to Aurecon’s client arrival experience. This level features reception and a makerspace and acts as a flexible space for training and informal client gatherings. The client experience floor on Level 1 features a concierge with training facilities, boardroom, meeting rooms and informal client lounges. Levels 2 to 4 are the workplace floors. Each floor has centralised social spaces and tea points designed for informal gatherings and meals. Level 3 features an expansive hub kitchen for communal meeting and dining.
The 7,500sqm fitout celebrates the building’s engineering and use of engineered timber. Paired back and open, the interior ensures timber remains the hero by leaving the soft grain of the soffit exposed. With a design that puts people and how they will use the building at its heart, the fitout is targeting a WELL Silver Interiors rating.
The inclusion of greenery was critical in creating a healthy workplace environment. Custom planters provide hanging greenery and act as space dividers to connect employees to the environment. Outdoor terraces provide staff with access to a herb garden with native beehive. The Zen Zone on Level 1 is a retreat for Aurecon’s people and demonstrates the designer’s and client’s dedication to creating a holistic workplace.
