The Geyer Perth studio is on level 2 of the Atlas Building, a significant heritage building constructed during the Great Depression in the Inter-War Free Classical Style in 1930-1931 for the Atlas Assurance Company. In its day the facade demonstrated innovative design and a decorative use of materials including Wunderlich architectural terracotta. The building is a rare reminder of the period during the Great Depression when very few commercial buildings were constructed in Perth.

Until 1969, there was an imposing life size figure of Atlas supporting the globe crowning the building. Subsequently and due to ongoing maintenance issues the figure was removed permanently. The Atlas emblem can still be observed in some of the remaining door hardware throughout the building.  

Geyer relocated to the Atlas Building in 2009 after merging with the locally established practice Blake Thornton-Smith. The space was transformed in to a contemporary design studio complimentary of the building’s heritage and Geyer’s creative culture.
