Design Team: NH Architecture
Location: Melbourne
Status: Completion end of 2009
Cost: $500 million

NH Architecture has been appointed for the redevelopment of the Myer Bourke and Lonsdale Street stores. The proposal consists of the redesign of the Myer flagship store with a new development north of Little Bourke Street consisting of a number of buildings around a network of public lanes.

This proposal offers a vision driven by bold ideas that include: increased area to the Bourke Street address, an upgrading that can set new standards in department stores, environmentally sustainable initiatives, and an architectural achievement that adds to Melbourne’s design accomplishments.

The proposed rooftop Myer Room provides a contemporary equivalent to the retained historic Mural Hall – the destination within a destination. It will be the hub of calendar of events: launches, shows, exhibitions, and dining. Its crystalline roofscape will be the end of a journey starting from the ground level – it will be the crown of the new Myer Melbourne.

The Lonsdale Street redevelopment will retain the historic fa├žades to the north with five separate buildings behind. These buildings will be up to 10 levels high and be connected via a series of laneways. The mixed use building programme will include retail, hospitality and potential for serviced apartments or a hotel.
