Slack Opens its Australian HQ

Slack – a messaging and project management app for company teams – has officially opened its Australian headquarters.

Located within the heritage listed Carlton Brewery site in Melbourne, the office will serve as Slack’s Asia Pacific headquarters. Designed by Breathe Architecture, the fit out uses environmentally sustainable materials such as locally sourced, recycled Tasmanian oak floorboards, which have been nailed rather than glued to ensure the timber can be used for another purpose in the future. The fit out embraces the bones of the existing heritage building and its storage tanks, while providing a series of new spaces that are a manifestation of Slack’s values – ’empathy, courtesy, craftsmanship, playfulness and solidarity’.
