    The Corrs Chambers Westgarth Melbourne premises carry strong references to the context of the city. ‘Urban laneways’ are used to frame areas and generate a sophisticated client floor on level 25. This is linked to other levels with a dramatic and sculptural stair to level 26 containing the staff and client cafe.

    The expansive void strikes a balance between polished and deconstructed interior elements, with dramatic ceiling heights, exposed architectural elements and a mixture of hard and soft materials to reference the vibrancy of Melbourne’s laneways and vibrant hospitality sector.

    Warm, natural and timeless materials promote a sense of honesty and reflect an international image. Continuity of architectural features from the base building is reflected in the interior providing a strong interior/exterior link.
