Stanbeth + Excelsior House

22-28 Customs Street East, Auckland CBD, Auckland 1010

Full of history, character and plenty of quirk. If only the walls could talk.

Workplace Wonderland

Once a mecca as the region’s first coffee source, these heritage buildings in Britomart continue to find new ways to fuel Auckland’s energy and creativity. Operating across four floors of the restored Stanbeth and Excelsior buildings, a gorgeous variety of working environments is on offer - hot desks, shared work spaces and private offices, all supported by a flexible mix of meeting rooms, boardrooms, and super funky event spaces.
