555 Collins Street
Office & Residential
555 Collins Street is a new commercial development located in the heart of the Melbourne CBD. Designed by renowned architects Cox Architecture and Gensler, the project features a 37 storey, 160 metre building combining office and retail spaces. Built within the constraints of the existing structure of the former 1970’s building, the tower includes a new and deeper basement. It comprises large cantilevers and raking columns to the north and east elevations and was designed with a tapered top to prevent overshadowing the Yarra River’s north bank.
555 Collins Street offers a connected and engaging workplace that enhances the experience for workers and prioritises occupant comfort and wellness, while also anticipating the needs of the future workforce in Melbourne. Atriums within the towers’ lower levels promote collaboration, social interaction, and activity, while a connection to daylight and views is optimised on all floors and is intended to lift the human spirit.
Acknowledging the significant carbon contribution of the primary structural frame, the design took proactive measures to minimise greenhouse gas emissions. Using grid optimisation and low carbon concrete the overall environmental impact of the building which effectively reduced, achieving the highest possible Green Star rating with a 6-star award.
