Welcome to our new Asia Pacific headquarters located in Sydney’s artsy suburb, Chippendale. I’m Khanh Nguyen, a member of the community team with Houzz Australia, and I’m excited to share our new home with you!
This office hosts the teams supporting our communities in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, as well as our APAC operations. The space was designed to highlight the unique design aesthetic of each of the APAC countries where we’ve launched a localized platform, and to create a warm and collaborative space for our growing team.
Let’s start the quick tour, with a focus on the design, of course!
As soon as you open the door, you’ll find a bright Houzz-green chair and photos of team members with their families. You’ll find photos of employees with their families at any Houzz office you visit around the world as we want people to feel like they’re at home when they’re at Houzz.
As we have an open floor plan, our meeting rooms are always coveted spaces. Down the hall you’ll see the first and largest of our meeting rooms, the Aussie Backyard. Inspired by the Aussie’s inherent love for outdoor entertaining, this room features a floor to ceiling decal of a house designed by Aussie architect Matt Gibson Architecture + Design.
The next meeting room you’ll see is our Bollywood Movie Theatre, a homage to the launch earlier this year of our dedicated India site. This room features jewel toned cushions, draped traditional saris and retro Bollywood movie posters from the 70s and 80s.
Our bathroom meeting room is next – styled clean white with timber accents. The bathroom decal is from one of our Houzz professionals, Green Country Developments.
