ANZ Centre in Melbourne’s Docklands, designed by HASSELL and Lend Lease design, applies contemporary thinking in workplace design and leadership in sustainability to reflect the client’s focus on engagement and productivity while responding to the site’s unique location.
Inspired by the riverside setting and the maritime character intrinsic to Docklands, the fluid forms and powerful internal spaces contribute to a commanding presence. The design evolved around the concept of an ‘urban campus’, focused on a central ‘common’, with a hierarchy of shared spaces, an openness fostering interaction, and a rich variety of settings providing scale and complexity.
The development provides a total net area of 83,600 sqm over 13 levels, with floorplates, ranging from 9,800 - 6,600 sqm, all configured to maximise natural daylight penetration, promote workplace integration and communication, and provide flexibility.
ANZ Centre is the largest single-tenanted commercial office building in Australia incorporating strategic energy, water and waste management systems. It has been awarded a 6 Star Green Star – Office Design v2 rating from the GBCA, creating a benchmark in accessible, robust and responsive sustainable architecture.
