Creating spaces where people can thrive is a modern challenge that major cities are facing. In the age of hybrid work models, elevating customer experience in our existing spaces is more vital than ever. One person who knows a lot about spaces, buildings and reviving communities is Dexus’ Head of Office - Property and Asset Management, Lorraine Lee.

In the first special episode of our Lobby Series, CBRE’s Pacific Advisory Services CEO, Phil Rowland, sits down with Lorraine to find out how organisations can maximise the human experience in the spaces people frequent every day. 

The conversation touches on leveraging the power of art in buildings and the need to connect these buildings to the wider community. Sustainability naturally comes into the equation as an initiative at the forefront in today’s society.  

Each episode from this series takes place in the lobby of some of Sydney’s most iconic buildings and brings together our very own in-house experts with market leaders who are shaping our future cities.
