WilkinsonEyre create state-of-the-art workspace for central business district

Tenderstream member WilkinsonEyre has unveiled the conceptual design for a new office tower and public realm space at 600 Collins Street, Melbourne, following a development submission by real estate firm Hines. Working with Australian firm Architectus, WilkinsonEyre designed a 180m tall skyscraper with a striking curved façade, intending to provide a dynamic and stimulating place to work and meet. 

The commercial project will deliver more than 60,000 sq m of state-of-the-art collaborative office spaces, designed to suit the changing needs of a digitally enabled workforce, while offering a high standard of amenities for tenants. The design incorporates biophilic principals, reflecting the latest thinking in sustainable and healthy workplaces by targeting a minimum 6 Star Green Star rating by the Green Building Council of Australia, as well as a Platinum WELL Certification for shell and core. 

The building offers restaurants, rooftop terraces and outdoor spaces, conferencing and collaboration zones, together with a wellness centre and open green spaces. A new pedestrian connection and an improved public realm create an active frontage that responds to the city’s cultural street scene. The tower and podium forms draw the eye across their articulated facades, creating a sculptural addition to the Melbourne skyline and the central business district.

WilkinsonEyre Director, Dominic Bettison, stated: “The architectural aspiration for 600 Collins by Hines is to create a signature building of the highest quality, including a fundamental public realm design strategy. The proposal submitted by WilkinsonEyre and Architectus looks to build on the Melbourne tradition of the laneway, sculpting out a generously proportioned and inviting new public thoroughfare that connects to the local area and offers a lively hospitality scene to workers in the area.”

Construction is scheduled to commence in January 2023.
