I was just going to pontificate about style and work and weekends like I usually do but the architects, Williams Burton Leopardi, describe this building in Kent Town, South Australia so much better than any glib badinage I could come up with.
The workplace today needs community, connection and inclusion. Base 64 is set up as a community of cohabitating businesses under the umbrella of former Internode chief Simon Hackett. Seen as a technology incubator, it eschews the short term excesses of a Silicon Valley “fun park” office for an emphasis on belonging, integration with the outdoors, rich, lush, tactile materials and a sense of comfort and well being. All this is underpinned by a strict environmental responsibility and adaptive re-use.
