356 Collins Street, Melbourne, Australia
Client: Peachtree Capital
Architect: Woods Bagot
About the project:
356 Collins Street is a ‘pocket battleship’ sized office foyer in Melbourne premier commercial address. The basis of the lighting design to the foyer space was to carefully complement the new architectural finishes and enhance the overall experience of the space.
The foyer is a fairly small environment consisting of a front double-height space and rear lift lobbies on Ground and an elevated mezzanine lift lobby. A key design requirement was to prevent it from feeling too complicated but also not too simple or austere. To achieve this the interior design focused on the use of a limited palette of materials including timber blades, black marble and light limestone interspersed with linished brass to articulate the space and add refined details.
