House of Lister

A place for the curious ones

Home of Joseph Lister

The name Lister Place originates from Joseph Lister; previous occupier of the building and one of the great pioneers of antiseptic medicine.

Before the 1800s, post-surgery mortality rates averaged around 50%. Lister's Antisepsis System discovery changed this forever - by forming the basis of modern infection control as we know it today.1

The legacy of Lister's extraordinary work carries through the building, to the next generation of revolutionary thinkers.

Lister Place is ideal for what we need as a team. We have privacy to be as loud as we need to be, but at the same time as being able to connect to other companies while grabbing a freshly ground coffee in the main lobby.

The building is beautiful and the rooms are really well appointed. The range of different seating spaces help us work effectively and productively, and the whole Paper Tiger team are able to really concentrate on the given agenda.
