The Story

Base64 is a unique business precinct based around an historic 19th century Adelaide mansion which has been invigorated with all the benefits of 21st century technology.

Base64 was created by Adelaide technology entrepreneur Simon Hackett as a location for both his own business interests and as a hub for technology innovation in Adelaide.

Located at 64 North Terrace, Kent Town, Base64 is connected to the world via gigabit Ethernet. Although fully-airconditioned, the restored buildings also offer the ability to open windows, allowing natural airflow into rooms when required. Discretely placed solar panels generate 20 kilowatts of power, which will soon be stored in an industrial-power on-site Redflow large battery storage unit.

Containing four sympathetically renovated buildings, the oldest built in 1865, Base64 contains a carefully curated community of innovative Australian businesses. Central to the complex is an uber-modern kitchen, which opens into a central courtyard, where conversations and community flourish.

As well as housing its permanent residents, Base64 contains areas, including the Boardroom and the Chapel seminar room, that can be hired for events such as workshops, planning events or strategic sessions. We invite you to explore Base64 through this website and to contact us if you have any questions.
