Imagine a workplace where having walked, cycled or jogged to the office, you’re greeted by “end-of-trip” facility that fuses the exclusivity of a Soho House-style private club with the luxury of a world-leading spa. This is the wonderful reality for Memocorp’s employees at 259 George Street.

Located in the basement of Memocorp, The Stella Collective has infused the 1000m2 space with a trademark ultra-cool elegance, transforming the once dark and cavernous basement into twenty-five private bathroom suites, sophisticated meeting rooms and a very special luxury lounge.

Embracing its subterranean locale, Stella created a truly immersive environment. Dramatic touches such as luxurious green velvet drapery paired with elegant dark timber flooring are theatrical and delightfully cocooning. Sumptuous finishes, gleaming with brass and an array of crafted furniture in the lounge transport office workers a million miles away from the stressors of corporate life.

Therapeutic warm timbers and clean Japanese tiles make up a calming palette for each of the personal bathroom suites evoking a feeling of a cool day spa, a luxurious nod to the indulgence of leading spas and hotels.

“It has been said great inspirational ideas and the pursuit to work smarter/harder come from being in a positive and nourishing environment. Zephyr required a big, bold and adventurous personality to service the brunt of a multitude of office workers at 259 George St. Ambience and attention to detail were so important on this project bringing a much-needed hospitality feel to the workplace, taking great care to make the ordinary extraordinary."
