MC Centre

Meredith Connell (MC)

Auckland, New Zealand

Creating an atmosphere of calm, tranquillity and connection

Leading litigation firm MC recently opened their incredible new MC Centre in the heart of Auckland city. Conceived as the best workplace in Aotearoa for New Zealand’s best lawyers, the new office space has been inspired by New Zealand native bush environments including Auckland’s scenic Waitakere Ranges.

Innovative interior that connects with nature

The design features innovative interior landscaping using lush raised gardens, native plants, mosses and photosynthetic grow lights to create an atmosphere of calm and tranquility as well as a connection with nature. Internal bridges and stairways connecting office spaces and meeting areas have been designed in ways which add further visual interest to the building’s interior.

Bringing together a team of technical experts

Calibre Built Environment provided structural design and fit-out design services to realise MC’s vision for this remarkable office space. We worked as part of a multi-disciplinary team of technical experts which included architect Jasmax, property developer Mansons TCLM, project manager The Building Intelligence Group, acoustic and mechanical engineers Agile Engineering, and interior fit-out specialists Impact Interiors.

In delivering this complex project the Calibre Built Environment team also worked collaboratively with terrarium and landscaping specialists Outside In, consulting engineers Norman Disney & Young, and onsite café designers Burning Red.
