The Sydney Office ...

OK, today, I'd like to show you guys how my company's office is like in Sydney. This office is super nice - very cutting edge, at least in terms of the interior decor ... and is a very open layout, very inviting, warm, and still, it's an office area ...

*For people who think I OWN the company, I have this to say ... woi ... stop dreaming. It's the office of the company I work for, ok? Can't I not be specific everywhere I go?*

This is the area around where I sit. The whole concept is that you have hives - open spaces which is not assigned to anyone - no one has a permanent space. You come in, go to your general seated area, and then plug in and sit anywhere a seat is available. And near every few hives, you get a sofa set with tables, a discussion area, a chillout area and a drinks station with coffee, tea and chocolate served. The picture above is taken from my seat, looking at the discussion chairs just behind me.

Coming into the office in the morning, this is the view. While there are offices, demo rooms, meeting rooms and even labs on the ground floor, this floor is mostly an open area. You chill out here, there's a coffee bar and the pantry is actually this entire area, actually. This is the same area where our guests wait. So, you can call this a reception area doubling as our pantry tripling as the coffee / lunch break area.


Taken from the 1st floor, where I'm seated, this is a view of the reception area. Nice chairs, huh? You can see the coffee bar, just at the top end of the picture ... I should take one during the day when you can see how the lights all come into play, since the building is all glass.


One of the many discussion rooms in the office. The discussion rooms are all named after scientists. This one has tables, sofas and also a few PCs. Nice, huh? There are so many nice rooms ... I don't think I can put them all here ... they all have different color schemes, layouts and furnitures. It's all very nice. And I think most of the furnitures are IKEA pieces. Perhaps Taiko can identify and confirm them.


Hehe ... totally unrelated to the Sydney office, but here to antagonize someone ... here's a shot of the tiramisu I had tonite =) .... drooling or not?

pianonee: It is an office ... it's on Innovation Road in Macquarie University Research Park. If you have friends studying in Macquarie U, ask them to look at the brown building opposite the bus terminal in Macquarie Center.
