Bates Smart’s design for the 360 Collins redevelopment offers a unique solution for workers along a bustling section of Little Collins Street with the inclusion of an urban plaza to its latest commercial development designed for Dexus. The new facility encourages a collaborative working environment, with the additions of improved lifestyle benefits including a fully refurbishment lobby featuring custom table lamps, Ora Desk Lamp
in Anodised Charcoal.
The 35 storey building maintained a high level of tenancy occupancy while the refurbishment works were underway. Buildcorp’s experience in live environment projects ensured the building operations continued with minimum disruption.
Bates Smart Director, Julian Anderson said the commercial development also involved the upgrade of the lobby and lounge areas to welcome guests. “360 Collins sits at the heart of Melbourne’s historic banking district and represented a fantastic opportunity to revitalise and enliven an important CBD office space. As one of the last sites in Melbourne with a north facing plaza. 360 Collins Street relinks Collins and Little Collins Street through a welcoming and vibrant lobby and retail plaza filled with natural light.
“The Collins Street entrance maintains a formal and corporate appearance. The existing travertine floors have been retained, and the space has become more welcoming through the addition of textured timber.”
