Thank you for visiting Ideas Space. We've re-branded this venue hire site to VENYOU - new style, better functionality and mobile friendly. You will be redirected automatically. If you don't see the new site in a few moments please click here to redirect manually.
The Flagship is a unique and beautiful space for events, education and training, that brings a range of sustainability-focused activities to Auckland’s wonderful Wynyard Quarter. The venue is available for hire by anyone seeking an immersive, environmentally-friendly space for their meeting or event for up to 200 people.
The Flagship is close to getting the "Living Building Challenge" certificate and part of this is to generate 105% of the building’s energy needs. Thanks to Vector, we are achieving this goal with the battery and solar system. We also have composting toilets and use purified rainwater as our drinking source (it tastes great!) and 85% of materials used to build The Flagship are recycled and repurposed materials.
Prices: $500.00 + GST – Up to two hours
$750.00 + GST – Up to four hours
$1,000.00 + GST – Full day
For any events outside of our opening hours of 10am — 5pm, a paid Event Assistant is required to be on site. Minimum charge is $90.00 + GST which covers up to three hours. Additional hours on top of this are charged at $30.00/hour. We will invoice you directly. Your Event Assistant will help with tech support, setting up and packing down your event, sweeping and restocking toilets when needed and locking the building at the end.
Surcharge applies for events on public holidays.
For meetings of 10 or fewer guests we have a smaller space available for $100.00 + GST per hour / $500.00 + GST per day. Prices exclude GST, but include assistance from our staff in setting up for your event and connecting to technology.
