Transurban Fitout, Collins Square, Melbourne

Client: Transurban

Architect: Hassell

The Transurban workspace in Tower 5 at Collins Square site in the Melbourne Docklands precinct represents a new environment for the business. The Level 31 space provides the main Client-facing spaces with a suite of meeting rooms, boardroom, lounge, Concierge and dining environments. The space was specifically designed to be a dramatic visual experience with unique architectural finishes, contrasting geometry, internal trees, dramatic AV systems and video conferencing throughout.

The visual experience is based around two contrasting environments; the open areas and the enclosed meeting spaces. The biggest challenge was developing a solution to the highly unique ceiling. This ceiling, a folded 1mm clip-on aluminium plank system, was not designed to have anything penetrate it, so NDYLIGHT led the design and coordination of a system of services slots to enable the lighting and services to be located where required and prevent as much as was possible, any penetrations. Pairs of semi-recessed downlights on a simple grid array illuminate the waiting lounge and reception area.
