Vanguard Investment Australia’s new headquarters in Melbourne by Bates Smart speak of place and outstanding amenity. The project involved renovating six floors with an area of 10,000 square metres. Each level is linked by a central staircase and void conceptualised as a floating white ribbon and this is surrounded by meeting rooms, activity-based working areas and facilities. The colour palette is soft and natural and Australian art and furnishings have been included in the fit out.
Planex contributed Linea cabinets and xLocker2 lockers to the interior for the 900 staff.
