Opened in 2014 The Porter, a collaboration between Haworth, Gensler and Lend Lease, was borne from global research highlighting the need to offer the new mobile worker an inspiring destination outside of the traditional office space. The Porter is a curated, premium collaborative business space that makes the building ‘come alive’ by creating a destination in the previously idle lobby area. The Porter now incorporates a mix of work-settings to support the diverse day-to-day activities including; settings for both open and focus individual and collaborative work, informal and formal meeting places and a flexible event space. The atmosphere is enhanced through colours and textures that echo a luxury residential feel, creating a warmer and more welcoming environment. This residential feel shapes the culture of the space and reflects the tenants of 1 O’Connell St.
