    Leading investment and advisory group, Jarden, have established a new presence on Auckland’s premium CBD waterfront.

    Jarden are located in Commercial Bay, an A+ grade corporate office space in Auckland’s CBD. Unispace worked with the Directors to design a timeless and sophisticated workplace that provides a high-quality, welcoming client experience.

    This was a truly collaborative exercise between architectural, interior, and lighting designers. The space has a refined and polished aesthetic, a result of the minimalistic palette that was hand-selected and paired with all finishes, furniture, fittings and joinery.

    While the brief appeared straightforward, the level of built environment and industry compliance offered considerable challenges from base building structural modifications to acoustic performance and high net worth client confidentiality and privacy.

    Lighting plays a significant role in the design of the workplace with features layered throughout the space in all forms, illuminating feature finishes and artwork.

    Hospitality and client experience are first and foremost at the heart of the design, the attention given to the finer details, right down to beautifully custom-made whiskey cabinets.

    The experience is enhanced with a high-rise ‘sports bar’ and kitchen equipped with barista coffee, a beer tap and an all-access TV subscription, as a space for employees to have a break or unwind after a long day. These elements bring additional value to Jarden’s hosting experience and provide a space for employees, clients and partners to collaborate and socialise, giving an opportunity to develop the office culture.
