The tang of fresh paint (well, exposed brick sealant) has barely wafted from Hybrid’s brand new, eye-catching Bristol HQ, and already our global team is celebrating another new home.
This week, our Sydney team stepped into their new workspace — you can relive that very moment below.

“Confident, modern and warm,” the new space is an art deco overhaul of a century-old, former warehouse in the heart of the CBD.
Complete with polished wooden floors, exposed ceilings and, of course, featuring the unofficial ‘Make Change Happen’ slogan in old-school, red-neon glow, the new space captures Hybrid’s identity adeptly.
With open, flowing spaces fostering team-wide collaboration and communication, the guiding inspiration of the overall design and feel has already earned 40 King Street the nickname ‘Little Bristol’.
It’s crucial that Hybrid’s talent has the setting and atmosphere that inspires them to be creative, focused and thrive — the best they can be. Our new Sydney base — home to sales, marketing, and account management teams, with more diverse vacancies to come — achieves just that.
“It feels good to be here,” said Farai Musa, Sales Director APAC, adding that the new space gives the people at Hybrid in Sydney a platform to develop and “grow relationships, business revenues, and their careers.”
After two years spent at Sydney’s Circular Quay and another three at Darling Harbour in “corporate-style” offices, the timing has proven ideal for the team to move into a space that better articulates the company DNA as it evolves and the team grows. It reflects the same concept and design ideas that were behind the new HQ in Bristol which underwent a major transformation last year.
Making change happen
Like Hybrid itself, the new space is about the meeting of both form and function, promoting collaboration, energy, and quality communications. The office is organised purposefully so that the sales and account management teams can move around the room freely as they talk and meet with clients.
There’s also a chic pantry and bar area where colleagues can relax as they bond over food and drink during breaks and downtime.
“We’ve invested in bigger and more dynamic space here in Sydney because we value the Hybrid team in Sydney and the long-term relationships that we’ve created with clients here and across APAC,” commented Hybrid Founder and Owner, James Craven.
“Thanks to Torallo, the landlords, who have been very welcoming and Hamish McKay at TGC who did a great job bringing the two parties together.”
The Sydney team is feeling excited and rejuvenated with the new office as they kick off the new year — and a new decade — in this beautiful and dynamic new space where energy can flow freely, and ideas are brought to life and put into action.
