QBE’s new Auckland office supports a transformational shift to an activities-based workplace. Breakout and meeting spaces feature a warm and vibrant reflection of New Zealand’s natural environment.

With technology now lighter, less visible and more pervasive, the virtual office is here. But instead of dehumanising the workplace, we see a new freedom for the physical space to take on a stronger role as community creator and creative hub. No longer tethered to a cumbersome desktop computer, we can move around, choose our setting and interact more freely with a wider range of people.
