120 Collins Lobby Revitalisation


Overview
Melbourne’s Iconic Building is Being Revitalised 

The revitalisation of 120 Collins provides newly refined experiences, with a series of contemporary third spaces that complement the rapidly evolving needs of occupants and visitors to the building, making it a place you’ll want to work, not somewhere you have to be.

The new lobby becomes a natural extension of Melbourne’s iconic laneways and public realm through a newly connected ground plane – a continuous, activated precinct with clear and bold new entries to Collins, Little Collins and Russell Streets at the top end of the Collins Street precinct. Designed by Hassell architects, works are set to commence in late 2021 and will be revealed in 2023.

New Skydeck
An Active Place for Occupants to Enjoy

The new skydeck area will provide a sense of community and create an active place for occupants to enjoy. The space will come alive with a progressive calendar of events and wellness activities.​

120 Collins is unmistakably one of Melbourne’s iconic commercial buildings, and this revitalisation will ensure that rings true for decades to come as it redefines the future of work not just in Melbourne but on the global stage.
Celebrating Melbourne’s Past, Present and Future
The revitalisation removes much of the clutter of the existing lobby, replacing them with dramatic double and triple height glass walls and a series of floating metal canopies and mezzanines.

This reflective roofscape celebrates the historic buildings in the Professional Chambers and St Michael’s Church and draws the courtyard into the lobby, now an active urban oasis for retreat and refresh - an authentic, important piece of Melbourne’s past, present and future.

Daylight floods the new lobby not only through the dramatic glass wall facing the courtyard, but with a gallery-style glass atrium roof framed in matching reflective metal blades that also facilitate views of both the tower and professional chambers bookending the new best-in-class cafe that energizes the new lobby.
Next-generation Workplace Experience
Critical in future-proofing the workplace experience is access to nature and natural elements which is why we have created two complimentary gardens to the site – a lush new courtyard oasis that is wind-protected and a natural oasis, and a new skydeck to experience Melbourne’s heritage roofscape like never before in a raised ground plane for tenants only, a new experience that will transform 120 Collins and be the envy of Melbourne’s corporate-class.

Completing this next-generation lobby experience is a series of informal spaces for coffee catch-ups, meetings, various flexible work-modes through a new mezzanine level with bookable meeting spaces equipped with the latest technology and amenity.

Hassell’s purpose is to design the world’s best places – places people love.​

We’re passionate in our belief that design has a long-term role to play in improving lives and making society more prosperous and resilient – and we have the specialised capabilities and people to make that happen. Globalisation, climate change, urbanisation, and digitisation present new opportunities and challenges for how we live. In this fast-changing context, we bring together the best designers and thinkers in a unique collaborative process that results in both beautiful design and measurable value.​
 
Design for the Future of Work

“The post-pandemic office allows people to work in a multitude of ways, more like a ‘clubhouse’ than the offices we used to know so people will want to come back to the city for collaborative work and innovation. Fundamental to achieving this at 120 Collins is creating a variety of flexible spaces for human interaction and connection and  access to outside spaces, fresh air and nature in a dynamic and engaging way.” – Ingrid Bakker, Hassell.
