Echoing Melbourne in its urbane moods and cool facade, Collins & Queen Essendon brings you closer to the city it belongs to.
Contrast between form and materiality expresses a legible balance between slick and raw, rough and refined, urban and sophisticated.
Curved gestures present a seductive approach to the site from key vantage points, accentuated by rigid plates, exuding a confidence and counterpoint to surrounding context. Intentional use of texture and shear surfaces reinforce the experience, both from a distance and at a pedestrian level of interaction.
Rustic, natural materials framed within smooth, contrasting edges create an elegant industrial feel to the interior spaces. The juxtaposition of the natural and the manmade, the smooth and the raw allows you to relax and feel in touch with your environment.
