Don’t settle for WeWork when you can join The Bureau instead. Located in the heart of Sydney‘s CBD, this new and exclusive workspace bears the hallmarks of a luxury boutique hotel. It was designed entirely by women with the goal of giving female professionals a swanky and inspirational place to get down to business. However, don’t take that to mean this is a “women-only” environment, whereas movers and shakers from all backgrounds are welcome to apply for membership. Non-members can also take advantage by booking one of the many meeting rooms on a pay-as-you-go basis through an adjoining app.
We checked out The Bureau for ourselves and couldn’t believe our eyes. From the tasteful furniture to the stunning use of colour to the elegant lighting, the workspace exhibits masterful attention to detail. There are 16 private and fully-furnished offices overall and they come fully loaded with all the essentials, including sit-to-stand desks and seamless touchpad control over things like airflow, curtains, and lighting. It was all brought to life by Kingsmede’s own Natashia Steed, a cult legend in the world of luxury interiors.
Centrally located between the boutique office suites is the Savoy Lounge, which features a brilliant art collection, a barista, a full bar, and Art Deco flourishes within a distinguished modern setting. Ideal for work and play alike, it pays tribute to the former Savoy Theatre that was once located at this very same address. It’s available by way of membership in the spirit of an exclusive club, allowing creatives, intellectuals, and like-minded individuals to remove themselves from the outside world as they while away the hours.
In addition to the boutique office suites and luxury business lounge, The Bureau hosts informal meeting areas, quiet rooms, and technology-packed boardrooms. Being located inside the iconic Kingsmede building, the workspace also provides access to the brand new end-of-trip facilities ‘Serenity’ as well as a squash court. Oh, and did we mention that there’s a full-time butler on duty, better known as the “Magic Man?” Like all good butlers, he’s ready to heed your every (reasonable) request at the drop of a dime.
Every bit as luxurious as it appears, The Bureau offers members and non-members alike the opportunity to work in the Sydney CBD. Of course, it’s the members who will reap the most rewards, such as 24/7 access to their own office suite. Opt for a Savoy Lounge membership, meanwhile, and you may never want to leave the building at all. Or you can pay-as-you-go to take advantage of the workspace’s distinguished meeting rooms.
The Bureau was designed and executed entirely by women and it palpably benefits from the female touch. It goes out to hard-working businesswomen but invites all types of entrepreneurs and professionals to apply for membership. Those looking to untether themselves from the burden of finding a new lease or decorating an office of their own have just discovered the best way to do it. Flank yourself with state-of-the-art technology and all kinds of glorious amenities as you settle into this stylish and swanky domain. Memberships are now available.
