An Enduring Architectural Achievement From Bates Smart
555 Collins is a landmark project located at the corner of Collins and King Streets, in the south-west quadrant of Melbourne’s Hoddle Grid. The proposed building is a 47 level residential and retail development that architecturally aims to contribute to the transformation and reinvigoration of the western end of the CBD.
The building is to become an elegant addition to the picturesque streetscape of Collins Street through its unique form and façade. The tapering form of the tower at the base will create a new public realm on the ground floor with generous provisions for open space and access to the residential entry foyer and retail facilities.
The development will include approximately 625 high quality residences; comprising one, two and three bedroom apartments.
Luxurious resident’s amenities will be provided on Level 2 within the tapering base of the building, allowing for views onto Collins and King Streets. Facilities include a lap pool, hot and cold plunge pools, steam room, massage room, multipurpose studio, gymnasium, resident’s lounge, resident’s dining room and kitchen, wine room and media room allowing residents a sense of luxury and community.

555 Collins Luxury Apartments
The historical prominence of this corner address asserted a strong influence over the original architectural vision for 555 Collins. In Melbourne’s modern era we considered it essential to honour the sense of grandeur typical to the many classical buildings along Collins Street.
The final, uniquely elegant form comprises an evolving façade that constantly changes as it is viewed from different aspects around the site. Intricate and textured, this façade provides intriguing and inviting points of view to pedestrians. 555 Collins adds new excitement to the vibrancy of Melbourne’s city skyline as light moves across this sinuous new form.
The larger fins on the tower gradually transition into fine mullions at the ground level akin to the tracery windows commonly found along classical shopfronts of heritage buildings along this iconic Street. 555 Collins is an exemplary address; its prominence, outlook and formal expression distinguish it as a rare and lavish residential development of genuine international design standing.
Aware that laneways are now a culturally significant characteristic of Melbourne, we were inspired to reimagine the notion of a podium, thereby providing a contemporary and elegant addition to the precinct’s streetscape. The tower’s form tapers inward towards the ground level, creating a continuous pedestrian loop and offering new opportunities for public space. In this way 555 Collins brings a contemporary addition to the city’s constellation of laneways, connecting residents and workers to King Street, Collins Street and Flinders Lane.
Largely transparent, the tapered ground plane allows daylight to filter freely into the internal retail spaces and artificial light to glow into the streets and laneways at night. This consistent luminance creates an urban environment that is safe and inviting. This shapely creation is both a stunning sculpture and a new civic plaza for Melbourne’s CBD.

Warm luxury defines the interior design approach that Bates Smart has applied to 555 Collins. By utilising the talents of architects and interior designers working in collaboration, the perfect outcome is achieved.
