Located in the very heart of Melbourne, the office of Vanguard Investments truly is a reflection of the brand and its values. After a rapid period of growth, the company consolidated two Melbourne offices to create a new, fully-integrated workplace that embodied a new way of working for their 800 staff Australian team. Spread over six floors, Bates Smart was responsible for the interior design and fit out of the new office. Valuing health, wellness and agility for staff, the design embraces flexible working with open work stations and collaboration areas balanced by more private retreats for focused work. With durability, easy maintenance and design versatility in mind, Bolon flooring complements the design aesthetic while adding a subtle but unique feature to each level, including the staircase which connects all six levels.
