When we talk about architecture, we mostly hear about New York or Dubai or some unknown Chinese mega city. But this time you're going to read about Australia. Woods Bagot architects designed new Sydney office for Macquarie Group, representing modern architecture of Sydney.


"Woods Bagot has been undertaking interior design and consulting for the Macquarie Group for over a decade. One Shelley Street was the culmination of many years of gradual innovation and progression that has resulted in arguably, one of the world’s most advanced workplaces.

Woods Bagot, Clive Wilkinson Architects and Cordless Group partnered on the workplace for the Macquarie Group at One Shelley Street, Sydney. The building (designed by Fitzpatrick and Partners) comprises 33,000m² of office space, across two low scale buildings: with a central atrium, public, retail and commercial space within the base floor.

Shelley Street accommodates 3,300 people in an activity based working environment. The work concept (as developed in collaboration with Veldhoen, Clive Wilkinson Architects, Cordless Group and Macquarie Group) aimed to change the culture of Macquarie from a command control model to a team of collaboration and trust, in addition to providing Macquarie Group with considerable property cost savings.

In this new environment, no occupant has an assigned desk - rather the work areas provide employees with a variety of options that allow them to do specific tasks in tailored work settings. This design philosophy encourages increased collaboration and a more productive mode of working. Each employee has an anchor point, which is allocated as their ‘home base’. and it is here that their locker and storage resides.

The design embraces the changing needs of Macquarie Group's people and visitors through the employment of technology (laptops, touch screens, USB ports, WiFi) to enable completely mobile and flexible ‘real time’ work with colleagues."
