Domain’s Sydney office | Office Envy


Hi, I’m Sarah. We’re in
Sydney, Australia. Today I’m going to take you
through our offices at Domain. We’ve been in these offices
for nearly a year now and I was part of a team that helped
organize and determine the fit out. We really wanted to make sure
that we tapped into a lot of the beautiful properties that we showcase on our
website and in our app every single week. You may find that domain feels
more like a home than an office. Take a look around. This is one of our really great brainstorm
spaces, great sessions in the middle and then we can break
out to the various zones. It’s not a Friday so there’s not a whole
lot of drinks here at the moment, but there is free coffee. Can I grab a skim flat white please? Making sure that we had lots of
natural plants in our office space was really important as part
of the design piece. Not only is it our brand color, but it
really does help with inspiration. Up on level five, we have our
marketing and editorial teams, as well as our sales
and finance teams. Here at Domain we all have a desk,
even the CEO. No one has an office. On level one, we’ve got a breakout space.
You can see lots of people in action. It gets pretty hectic down here
when we’ve got birthday cake, with over 300 people in the
office here, that’s a lot of cake. At Domain we host an
Innovation Week twice a year. We invite people from all over the business,
not just our product and tech teams, to have a say in what might
be included in our apps. We work in teams and pitch the
ideas to our leadership team and the winning ideas are
included in our products. This space was previously a
woolshed and it’s heritage-listed. There’s lots of pillars around which
presented some design challenges. Our meeting rooms here on level one
are all named after Sydney parks. This one’s Centennial Park. We can book the meeting rooms
online or on these interactive iPads. We even have a barbecue
up on our rooftop space, but in Australia, we call that
a sausage sizzle. Up on level five we have a really
nice, relaxed and beachy vibe. You can see we’ve got an
aqua bumps here on the wall. And our meeting rooms are
named after Sydney beaches. Balmoral Beach. And of course, Bondi Beach. I’d take you in but there’s a meeting
going on in there at the moment. We do all sorts of events down here.
We’ve recently launched Domain Academy. And here’s one of our events in action. In Australia we’re all obsessed with
property. It’s the national conversation. So we wanted to make sure in
designing this office space that we really made it feel like a
premium and homely environment. We’ve got lots of beautiful furniture
here to make you really feel at home. It’s not necessarily about things like free
popcorn and gimmicky pieces like that. It really is about a premium,
beautiful workspace. Thanks for coming to the land down under
and checking out our offices at Domain. I’ve got to get back to it. Bye!
