Atlassian: an incubator for ideas and innovation

Atlassian is one of Australia’s biggest tech success stories, growing from a two-man start-up working from a garage, to an internationally recognised company with eight offices across the globe.

For the new Sydney office HASSELL proposed a design solution that not only reflected the company’s creative values, but encouraged them as well.

The pilot project needed the best team spaces to truly support collaboration and help Atlassian unleash their full potential of being innovative, customer focussed and “committed to making awesome products”.

Working closely with Atlassian, HASSELL assessed and challenged the current Atlassian workplace to develop concepts for the future Atlassian workplace, focusing on rapid reorganization of teams, ensuring cultural continuity and driving connection across multiple sites.

HASSELL Senior Associate Emily Moss said the primary focus was to create a workspace that was adaptable and was able to be reconfigured with minimal technical issues.

“Using an ‘Incubator’ process to test the Altassian user experience was key in defining the success of each concept. The process allowed us to quickly and safely develop, test and accelerate workplace ideas to identify the right opportunities. It also meant we were able to cross collaborate, to test solutions applicable to Atlassian globally, to facilitate team ownership and customisation, and to ultimately develop a ‘kit of parts’ that is uniquely Atlassian,” Emily said.
