The Venue

12 Madden Street


12 Madden Street is New Zealand’s finest purpose-built coworking and events space, designed to give innovative companies of all sizes the best possible working or event environment in which to prosper.

Positioned in the heart of the Wynyard Quarter Innovation Precinct in Auckland CBD, 12 Madden Street encapsulates the whole innovation precinct philosophy within a single building. 


Whatever your means of travel are, on foot, bike, scooter or magic carpet, you can get to us from all directions in Wynyard Quarter. If you’re visiting us during business hours you can enter the John Lysaght building from two places, 101 Pakenham St West or through the laneway off Halsey St.

The main entrance for 12 Madden Street is halfway down Madden Street, Wynyard Quarter.

Keep in mind that Wynyard Quarter operates on a 70/30 split, with 70% of people expected to visit the area by public transport, on foot, bike, scooter, skateboard, interpretive dance, or hoverboard! And the rest in their car. If you can hop on a bus, or jump in a taxi to visit us, do consider this!


Look for signs directing you to your event and please be mindful if there is another event in progress. If you found it tricky to find the event you were after, please let the event organiser know so we can make this process easier next time.

The concierge inside the main foyer of 12 Madden Street will help you find your way to the different event venues within the building.

We have noted the awesome amount of bike enthusiasts around and this is a movement that we want to support as much as we can. With that in mind, we have made sure that both Lysaght and Madden St have large bike storage areas, with over 20 racks. The buildings also have excellent shower and bathroom facilities on site.


We encourage you to use public transport! The City Link bus includes a circuit of Daldy and Beaumont streets every 8 minutes from Monday to Saturday and connects to services across the region. The #10 Bus service provides an hourly weekday service between Onehunga and Wynyard Quarter via Pt Chevalier, with a 30 minute frequency during peak times. The Inner Link and Outer Link buses stop on the other side of Victoria Park, only a short walk away. Similarly, the North Shore buses stop on Fanshawe Street, just minutes from GridAKL.
