    A unique executive workplace embracing premium co-working
    The Executive Centre – Collins Place offers co-working luxury and convenience in the prestigious Paris end of Melbourne’s CBD. The purposefully designed workspace, by global design studio GroupGSA, fosters community and connection, with a design DNA centred on Melbourne’s distinctive art, culture, and coffee vibrancy.

    Workspaces are surrounded by sweeping views of Melbourne’s skyline, framed by large windows that allow ample natural light to fill the space. The design pays tribute to Melbourne’s iconic laneways and coffee culture, with an on-site barista serving only the finest coffee worthy of its location and art-adorned walls.

    The design boasts curved finishes throughout, providing a sense of surprise and delight as you move through the space. The central lounge is a perfect example of this, offering a diversity of seating options and collaborative settings, including bank seating for group meetings, a comfy lounge for taking calls, and a window seat for enjoying coffee and reading the paper.

    The furniture selection is thoughtfully curated, providing comfort and diversity for different uses. Transparency and connection are key considerations, with adjoining meeting rooms and open-plan workstations all visible from the heart of the office, showcasing the space’s openness and fostering collaboration.

    Privacy is also a key consideration, with a mix of smaller and larger offices positioned along the facade to provide ample natural light while providing a variety of office suites options. The colour palette in the central lounge was carefully considered, introducing warmth and texture against the panoramic views of the city. The selection of natural and earthy textures, joinery choices, timber finishes, black metal framing, gold accents, and planting align with the client’s premium branding while immersing you in an environment that is unapologetically Melbourne.

    GroupGSA was engaged to complete the project as part of The Executive Centre’s national program of work.
