  • ⁴WoRK realized a workplace that represented the values of Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED), located in Auckland, New Zealand.

    ATEED embraced their opportunity to move by creating a project which enabled an internal investigation into who they were, who their customers were and what they wanted to represent. They harnessed their company values & positioned them as the project strives to bring a perfect synergy between cultural, sustainable, and inclusivity. This assisted them to look at a new way of working and provided a platform to take staff on a journey to their new workspace.

    ⁴WoRK collaborated with TOA Architects to define a cultural narrative to the FoH space which created a sense of pride and a sense of identity when arriving at the new office. This language was visualised throughout the space with all elements linking back to the story of the Ngā hau e wha o Tāmaki “Embrace the vitality from the four winds of Auckland” – a narrative which all staff could relate to and tell in their own way to all visitors & international partners.

    This new home, which places people at its heart, can accommodate any partner, investor, internal/external staff & visitors in the most welcoming and seamless way. A variety of spaces, furniture and rooms create a workplace of choice for all occupants.
