Myer, Melbourne

ARCHITECTURE

Project: Myer Bourke Street | Location: Melbourne, Australia| Architect: | NH Architecture

Building completion: 2011

The Myer renovations have introduced a golden glow to the retail heart of Melbourne’s CBD.  The Art Deco Bourke Street Mall facade has also been sensitively restored. Windows have been recommissioned to give life to the facade while allowing tempting glimpses of the retail activities within.

The  $225 million redevelopment of one of Melbourne’s most iconic shopping strips has won many awards and now gained recognition on a global scale.

A diamond-shaped skylight directs natural light into the atrium to transform a usually internalized retail environment into airy spaces.
