Aurora Place is a once in a lifetime workplace. It’s only temporary, but I am relishing the opulent surroundings. I feel like I have hit the jackpot with my current work situation. By sheer luck, I am working in the most beautiful office, with an incredible view, in a landmark building and get the ferry to work every day. This is the nicest location I have every worked, and just had to share it. I don’t know how long we will be there, but I am loving the creatively inspiring atmosphere of my environment.

Built on the site of the former State Office Block, the Aurora Place development comprises a 41 level commercial tower and 18 level residential building. The 49,400 m2 site is bounded by Phillip Street, Bent Street, and Macquarie Street.
And that’s just the outside!!!
Andrew Loader Design was commissioned to create an inspiring and agile workspace:
“It was to be an environment where their clients could be educated and entertained in surroundings that represent their core brand values, sustainability and approach to technology.”*
There are an impressive 250 metres of black, sculptural style cladding around the lift-well core, offering a stark and chic contrast to the white flooring. The floor also boasts Australia’s largest switch glass installation (you know the type, a current passes through the surface and the wall goes opaque). Impeccably cabled, double screen, large and open workspaces result in a clean and clear workplace, free of hazards. This creative workspace is key to creative thinking. The colour palette is tres chic in black and white, with grey and silver accents.
