Microsoft Technology Centre, Sydney

Location - Sydney, Australia

Designer - Tom Mark Henry

Microsoft, one of the world’s largest technology companies, engaged Tom Mark Henry (TMH) to help them realise their first Flagship Technology Centre in Australia.

Located above the iconic GPO in Sydney’s bustling Martin Place, the brief was to represent the global Microsoft brand whilst reflecting the project’s distinct Sydney context and site. The space needed to host a myriad of different demographics, from children to CEOs, and seamlessly cater for these diverse requirements with a complex spatial plan.

A focus on the natural beauty of the Australian landscape was fundamental to this project and explored using bold textures, colours and forms – including the choice of timber flooring. To differentiate the multi-purpose spaces, TMH selected Havwoods Pureplank Clermont for the kitchen areas and opted for Parky Ivory Oak Twist for several of the staff touchdown zones. The timber flooring complemented the other material choices and enabled TMH to create a cohesive aesthetic which was carried throughout the space.

The space celebrates all facets of its Australian context, not only the physical forms but also looking deeper at the built environment as well as the less tangible qualities of the local culture, language and design community; local artists were also engaged to create unique design elements throughout the space, embracing and celebrating the design culture within Australia.

“A HAVWOODS FLOOR WAS SELECTED DUE TO THE VAST RANGE OF FORMATS, COLOURS AND FINISHES AVAILABLE. THIS MADE IT EASY FOR US TO FIND THE RIGHT CHOICE OF timber FLOORING FOR THE PROJECT, WHICH WAS SUITABLE FOR THE SPACE AND WORKED WITH THE REST OF THE MATERIAL.”

- Tom Mark Henry
