Olderfleet Buildings 477 Collins Street, Melbourne VIC

role Architecture, Interior Design value $40 million area 25,000m² completed date 1990

The Olderfleet Buildings comprise three historic buildings and a new office building rising discreetly behind and above these structures.

The original Olderfleet Building with its distinctive clocktower, the Record Chambers with its classical stone façade, and the South Australian Insurance Building with its intricate stone and terracotta detailing are all designated historic buildings. The facades of these buildings have been restored to their original appearance and their interior renovated for office use.

The new building with its patterned glass and curtain wall, reflects in a modern idiom, the complexity of the original buildings.
