A world first partnership of indigenous values with global technology and influence

Google Aotearoa

For their first physical location in New Zealand, Google set out to change preconceptions. By partnering with mana whenua and indigenous artists, their new workplace authentically embraces the magic of Aotearoa.
Google is all about unearthing magical information and solutions for its users, so we felt the cultural connection should also reflect that sense of wonder, curiosity and unquantifiable magic, too.
Anzac Tasker - Creative Director at Designworks
When we set out to create our first purpose-built office in New Zealand, we wanted to capture the beauty and story of Aotearoa in a uniquely Google way. The end result is a thoughtful and creative space that we’re so proud to call our home.
