Bates Smart has completed its co-working space at Hub Parliament Station on Nicholson Street, East Melbourne.

Spanning 2,775 sqm, Hub Australia’s latest Melbourne venture occupying the top three floors (levels 16 to 18) of the iconic ICI House is currently known as Orica House.

The Hub Parliament Station interior is inspired by its base building’s mid-century classic design with a Palm Springs-like influence.

Bates Smart Director, Kellie Payne said, “The building is open and invites natural light with the most incredible views of Melbourne with aspects that overlooks the Parliament Gardens and the top-end of Spring Street, and the other over the Carlton Gardens with the Royal Exhibition Building in the background."

Accommodating over 500 members, the new co-working space includes a café, integrated barista bar/hot desks, a boardroom, large serviced meeting rooms, private offices that can be open or screened, member kitchen and lounge, fitness centre, parent and wellness rooms and a media hub.

The work-zone spine runs centrally through each floor, made up of a series of flexible, open-plan workspaces, breakout zones and dedicated rooms.

Elements of the original documentation of the base building have been incorporated within Hub Australia’s new workspace.

Breezeblocks are used throughout, in screens, walls and joinery, referencing the existing concrete waffle slab and ground floor lobby brickwork.
