Telstra’s fit out of 275 George street in Brisbane has created a practical, flexible and modern workplace suitable for accommodating multiple teams.
The innovative design offers open plan seating, multiple meeting and breakout areas and open stairwells. A shared breakout facility on the fourth level, boasting outdoor meeting and collaboration areas and an informal lounge, embodies Queensland’s tropical climate.
The design has successfully achieved an open and collaborative culture with improved productivity and has established national accommodation standards for Telstra.
