3 Collins Square, Docklands, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
3 Collins Square is the first of five towers to be completed at Collin Square, a major commercial construction in a burgeoning growth area in the Melbourne CBD. The 16 storey, 38,000 sqm commercial office tower, constructed by Built for developer Walker Corporation, is the new home of the Australian Tax Office.
The building’s form is defined by a series of stacked volumes that allude to the stacking of containers; a loose reference to the former utilitarian life of the precinct as a hub for the arrival, departure and storage of goods. Projecting fins combined with a variety of glass types differentiate the stacked volumes and provide texture and depth to the facades. Lower level facades receive an increased level of detail with the ground level retail frontages integrated within the architectural expression of the building.
The project incorporates exemplary ESD strategies, achieving a 5 Star Green Star Design & As Built rating and a 5 Star NABERS rating.
