Expression Australia's New Home

On March 6th, Expression Australia opened Australia's first office that's been purpose built with Deaf space principles in mind.

A massive milestone in our 139 year history, our new Collingwood home has been developed with our clients and community in mind. Dozens of potential new sites were examined with the most ideal site at Level 6, 54 Wellington Street, Collingwood. This space was co-designed by Expression Australia and Marchese Partners, and uses the world's best practice Deaf inclusive design principles.

Centrally located in the heart of Collingwood, the location was carefully chosen as the most convenient for clients coming to Expression Australia.

Our office is situated among other businesses who hold similar values to Expression Australia in their respective fields.


Jonathan Green from Blueprint for Living on ABC Radio National interviewed Expression Australia's outgoing CEO, Nicky Long, and Marchese Partners' Senior Interior Designer, Sian Neame-Smith, on the new Expression Australia Collingwood office and how it became Australia's first purpose-built Deaf office space.
