One Queensbridge

Melbourne, Australia

In August 2015, WilkinsonEyre won the international competition to design the 90-storey One Queensbridge located in Melbourne’s Southbank area. The proposed development will comprise approximately 700 apartments and a 388-room five–star hotel, incorporating a publicly accessible observation deck with a restaurant, bar and garden terrace.

WilkinsonEyre’s elegant solution for One Queensbridge is created by interlocking three plectrum shapes to provide a sculptural composition. 

The tapering forms allow the tower to read as a beautiful object with a unique identity, contrasting against the more rigid forms of the adjacent buildings.

A key component of the design is a new pedestrian link bridge that will provide hotel guests with all­-weather access from the lobby of the new hotel to the Crown Melbourne integrated resort.
