Elysium Tower

The Elysium tower is a landmark project for Melbourne’s skyline. This elegant, super-slim tower employs a number of sophisticated tall-building technologies to achieve its softly curving form. The design strategies operate at three different perspectives: the larger urban context, the immediate public realm and also at the closest context; that of the inhabitant. At the urban scale the project will provide Melbourne with a new landmark building at the edge of the CBD. The project is located on the sweep of a major arterial freeway serving the central city. The views to the building from this busy corridor as cars move past the tower will create a dramatic and dynamic experience for commuters. The elongated building form has been rotated and profiled to accentuate and animate the experience. The lower floors at street level have been designed to invigorate the public realm. Access for cars is designed within a sophisticated glass enclosure and state-of-the-art car lift system. This frees up the ground plane to facilitate a direct and engaging relationship to the street. The public space of the lobby is a generous double height volume with further void spaces that soar the full height of the seven level podium. Landscape integrated with the building fabric is an essential part of this experience. The ground floor and street are activated with a café and seating areas for the occupants of the tower but also to provide much needed amenity to the surrounding area. The voronoi pattern on the ground plane merges seamlessly from the footpath, to the interior, to the podium above – drawing these elements together
