Steelcase Melbourne WorkLife takes up residency at Hub Southern Cross

Steelcase Melbourne is relocating its WorkLife to the Hub Southern Cross, Hub Australia’s new co-working space in the heart of Melbourne, from October 24. The move provides Steelcase Melbourne with exciting opportunities to further advance its Work-Life mission of creating a vibrant working environment, expand our knowledge and explore new ideas on how to have a more engaging day at work.

As contemporary workspaces evolve from a focus on functional efficiency at the expense of individual wellbeing and growth, to spaces that empower social connection, creative collaboration and rejuvenation, the Hub will provide Steelcase with an evolving showcase for developing and providing workplace solutions to meet the needs of individuals and organizations today, and in the future.

At the Hub Southern Cross this exciting approach has expanded from our WorkLife space to encompass the whole floor occupied by Hub that provides a variety of workspaces for up to 700 people, with Steelcase providing furniture throughout. As well as supplying all task seating, Steelcase products also include our Team Studio and media:scape collaboration and co-location products to support local and global team work.

For Steelcase Melbourne our new home provides us with the opportunity to work with directly with start-ups, small and medium-sized businesses in a variety of industries looking to scale and grow, and to showcase our products in use in a wide range of workplace settings. In contrast to traditional offices, the Hub Southern Cross offers a variety of workspaces for businesses of 1 through to 20 people, including hot desking, dedicated individual and team spaces, as well as private and bespoke offices. There are also several meeting spaces from casual through to formal, and third spaces including a café, gym, relaxation space and gallery. 

Located on the second and third floor of the Mail Exchange building in the heart of Melbourne’s Central Business District, the Hub Southern Cross brings new ways of working to life in this 100-year old heritage building. It offers a great blend of Hub’s expertise in creating co-working spaces, the awarding winning design of leading international design practice HASSELL, and Steelcase’s knowledge and insights into workers and the workplace.

Hub Southern Cross is located at 696 Bourke Street, Melbourne, Victoria.
