Microsoft has unveiled its new Australian flagship office in North Sydney in the midst of the pandemic, offering a window into the future of workplace design.

Located at 1 Denison Street, the 10,000sqm office will house 1400 employees over seven levels, consolidating the tech giant’s three offices in the Sydney CBD.
