We entered into a collaboration with one of Australia’s leading architecture firms, Ewert Leaf, to determine the creative vision. It saw an in-house design competition with five internal teams of architects at Ewert Leaf each submitting their own designs for the nine-storey commercial and retail space. The Ewert Leaf competition winners then worked closely with our team to realise the final designs.
On entry, a statement canopy tree lends an established feel to the welcoming lobby. Rising through the building, the breathtaking views are maximised via a series of striking framing elements.
Dynamic design and natural light flow throughout, offset by natural stone, curved archways, full-height glass and exposed ceilings.
Demolition works have concluded on site at Pallas House Melbourne ready for Cobild to commence construction in early 2021.
This iconic South Melbourne site presents some interesting challenges for Cobild to work through, including limited access, and site boundary lines which are hard up against neighbouring properties.
Cobild have succeeded in designing sensitively to ensure both construction and operation of the building can be undertaken with limited impact on future neighbours.
