ONE and RISE represent a new era of amenity and inclusiveness for end-of-trip and wellness facilities within a commercial office tower, through adaptive reuse of underutilised basement carparks at 101 Collins Street. As one of Melbourne’s premium buildings built in the 1990’s, the interior architecture delivers anintegrated solution that’s uniquely tailored to its premium market. Underpinning this is a philosophy that elevates the user experience in every sense, and encourages cycling to work, exercising during the day to reduce congestion and improve wellbeing.
This benchmark project is industry-defining in what commercial landlords are providing to their tenants, that is a daily 5-star experience.
ONE, the end-of-trip component, comprises 44 showers, 500 bicycle parking spaces and 600 lockers. The design references the original highly detailed language of the building, refining rather than redefining it.The project has been a catalyst for a cultural shift within the community, realisinga 300% increase in female users and the way the tenants start their day.
At the threshold of RISE, the dark, lustrous square forms of ONE make way for a new design language. Airy biophilic curves and natural materials transport users to an internal oasis with suspended furniture placed within greenery below new skylights. A bespoke soundscape resonates whilst scent is injected into the space and changes throughout the day. This contextual relief invites users to ‘Discover a new you’, the essence of wellness.
