Australian tech giant Atlassian will house its new Sydney headquarters in a 40-storey hybrid timber structure to be built using mass timber construction. It will be located adjacent to Sydney’s Central Station and will be part of the NSW government’s planned technology precinct for the area.  New York-based Shop Architects and Australian practice BVN were selected to design the building.

The building will target a 50 percent reduction in embodied carbon and energy compared to conventional construction. Atlassian has also committed to operating on 100 percent renewable energy with zero emissions, by using energy efficient design, such as natural ventilation and planted terraces throughout the building, as well as generating green power on site through solar panels integrated into the building’s facades, which will be a glass and steel exoskeleton tied to the structure.
