Victoria’s first sustainable Green Star Office Interiors v1.1 Project for the new Victorian Auditor-General’s Office (VAGO) Head Office at 35 Collins Street, Melbourne.

A ground breaking first for the design industry, Geyer’s $4 million vision for VAGO was to make the Green Star objective a reality, using alternate design solutions and materials selection based on longer term performance, flexibility and sustainable outcome.

Created under the direction of Geyer’s Sustainability Expert, John Lenagan, VAGO’s refurbishment was an opportunity to review and adopt a new philosophy to their space requirements. An approach of “one size does not fit all” recognises the diversity of the organization. Shared facilities for teaming and collaboration were centralized on each floor, maximizing the opportunity for VAGO’s various business divisions to interconnect and share knowledge, while open plan and workstation design has capitalized on abundant natural light and provided vista views to all work areas. Space usage supports the different work styles of the various business units well into the future, using a modular approach that, coupled with intelligent layout and use of the facilities, will provide longer-term flexibility.
