Located conveniently in the heart of the Melbourne CBD, the site was historically the home of a Victorian retail arcade, long lost with lack of preservation.

The unusually long, narrow site presented unique opportunities to explore the idea of interconnection. The entry, a discreet width of three metres, seemingly continues the footpath into the interior, acting to blur the line between public and private zones. Natural light beyond, via an elongated skylight void along with connectivity to an existing laneway, celebrate the Melbourne laneway phenomenon.

As in a street, we sense a line of shopfronts; a side entry to the restaurant, stairs to the conference spaces, and beyond, the hotel lobby, revealing a warm retreat from the city. Designed with a predominant north and west orientation, the building uses selected clear glazing at all habitable levels. The design concept features a white ribbon element that folds back and forth through selected floor levels until reaching the podium level.
