The B:HIVE is the newest offering of co-working space in Auckland. Located on the Smales Farm precinct, the client’s goal for B:HIVE was to create a progressive office space, with green sensibility. It provides a broader social hub, a far cry from a cold business park. The design aims to reflect the client’s ethical commitment with place-making and community connections.

The building itself (B5) is 16,500m² provides a range of office spaces for innovative and creative businesses. It features an office partitioning system and shared (between tenants) meeting rooms to provide the ultimate in tenant flexibility. The ground-floor includes event and large meeting spaces. A key feature of the building is a central atrium and spiral staircase. It provides a vibrant focal point while allowing in plenty of natural light to all levels. Along with the main building is a 2,500m² extension that will have car parking, hospitality and retail offerings.

The team at Simon James worked extensively with both client and architect to provide a range of furniture, lighting and rug solutions for this forward thinking co-working space.
