The new headquarters building for Atlassian, an Australian software company, is set to rise 40 stories in Sydney.

Designed by SHoP Architects in collaboration with BVN, the the 590-foot-tall building will become the tallest hybrid timber tower in the world, according to the architects. The mass timber building will feature a steel skeleton that supports the timber “mega floors” and a glass facade that will generate electricity via built in PVs and self-shade the interior offices. The headquarters will feature a mix of indoor and outdoor spaces with elevated parks located throughout.

Built above The Parcels Shed, a building originally built in 1906 and currently operating as the Railway Square youth hostel, the new HQ will incorporate the historic building into its lower levels.

Compared to a similar, conventional building, the project will produce 50% less embodied carbon during construction and have 50% less energy consumption. The tower will also use 100% renewable energy. The project will help Atlassian achieve its goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Atlassian HQ is slated for completion in 2025.
