Sophisticated Space

Generator’s Northern Steamship Company or ‘NSS’ space has an air of quiet refinement- with enclosed offices, shared bar area and a spectacular board room with views looking out to the harbour across the busy port of Auckland.

The former shipping company offices are an important reminder of Auckland’s maritime past, opened in 1899. Located opposite the wharves and near the railway station, it was the ideal home for this coalition of ship-owners and businessmen, with a wooden boardwalk allowed passengers to cross to the steamers without getting muddy in wet weather.

Now our nautical themed NSS space continues that merchant heritage with a mix of businesses sharing the space, a sophisticated bar area and ‘The Bridge’ providing a state-of-the-art board room space. A full range of administrative services are provided, tailored to the needs of each business.

Calm, refined and classy, NSS is the perfect place for that professional businessperson without compromising on the liveliness and buzz of the Generator experience.

Heritage Style

Commissioned by the Northern Steamship Company in 1888, this two-storey building was officially opened on 19 May 1899. It cost £6000 and is one of the few surviving buildings designed by architect Arthur P. Wilson. All the exposed brickwork is original and recycled timber has been used from buildings elsewhere in the precinct. The window joinery was restored by craftsmen onsite and the original main Quay Street doors were restored offsite and reinstated.
