Thinking about signing up to a flexible workspace in Wellington CBD or still wondering what it’s all about?

Now you can experience New Zealand’s leading flexible workspace provider, Generator, as they open the doors to their 30 Waring Taylor Street location for a day.

Wellingtonians can drop in for a tour of the iconic art-deco-style former Dunbar Sloane building that houses Generator on Thursday 2nd November, and pre-register online here to book free hotdesking, free meeting room hire and a free professional headshot photoshoot to utilise on the day.

There will also be free food and drink available, networking opportunities and a winning wheel promotion with prizes including Generator Hot Desk memberships.

Generator Waring Taylor Street opened in November 2021 after a full refurbishment that included significant seismic strengthening and focused on sustainable development, achieving a 5 Green Star Design and As-Built rating.

In 2022, it won the Commercial Property of the year at the Property Council New Zealand's Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards. More recently, it won a Gold Pin at the 2023 Designers Institute of New Zealand Best Design Awards for Workplace Environments over 1000sqm, and the 2023 Te Kāhui Whaihanga New Zealand Institute of Architects (NZIA) Wellington Architecture Award for Interior Architecture.

Designed by architects Warren and Mahoney, the ambition of 30 Waring Taylor Street’s design was to celebrate and pay homage to the existing building. Meeting rooms and event spaces have been named with the building’s history in mind. This includes member’s lounge “Rumbles Bar”, which pays homage to the idiosyncratic Peter Rumble who ran Rumbles Wine Merchant in the space for 28 years.

Generator General Manager, Lauren Joyce says since Generator opened 30 Waring Taylor Street there has always been a genuine buzz surrounding the space: “If you glance from the street, you can peer into Rumbles Bar and that sparks curiosity for what lies within.

“Inspired by the building’s recent awards, we felt it was the perfect time to welcome the people of Wellington inside and take a look. Whether you're a solo entrepreneur looking for a hot desk, a team of 30 navigating the hybrid work model, or simply curious about the building’s redevelopment, we invite you to come in and check us out, enjoy the day, and maybe win a membership while you’re at it."
