australian architectural office HASSELL has won the best interiors and fit out award at this year’s world architecture festival with their project, ‘ANZ centre’.
located on the waterfront of melbourne, australia, the banking headquarters is designed to be open and permeable to the inhabitants’ activities.
the ‘urban campus’ houses 6,500 people and is the largest single-tenanted commercial office building in the country.
to compensate for its large scale, the project’s design aims to provide opportunities for small scale engagements through the breakdown of the layout. consisting of a
number of ‘hubs’ dedicated to a specific task, these local communities range from ‘play’ to ‘create’, the central atrium puts on display the different levels which are subtly
stepped from the ground floor to the top. each layer exhibits a different character that results in a dynamic effect when observed from the common space.
