The Urban Workshop at 50 Lonsdale Street, MelbourneEdit profile
The Urban Workshop at 50 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne, is the culmination of six years working with our clients ISPT and Multiplex to create a landmark commercial building. Over 34-levels the tower integrates a mixed-use brief, provides innovative workplace environments and offers the city civic gestures in the ground level areas of the building. A network of new public laneways and streets were designed to reflect the original street configuration prior to development in the 1960’s, and to create an intimate and active ground level connected to the life of the city. The Department of Human Services is the anchor tenant.
"With its kinks and folds, the building hovers above a collection of small scale historical buildings, and gently works itself in the urban context ... The commercial high-rise foyer is a type that has been rarely explored as successfully as in this project."
