rbis are proud to have worked on the Walk-Up Village at 81-89 Rupert Street, Collingwood. The 13-storey development was approved by the Minister for Planning via the State Government’s Building Victoria’s Recovery Taskforce in 2020.

The developer, Mologlo, engaged London based architects 6a to work alongside local practice Fender Katsalidis Architects. Construction is anticipated to commence in the first quarter of 2022.

Collingwood was historically a factory neighbourhood and is now a centre for the city’s creative industries. The project weaves together workspaces, artist studios, galleries, community spaces, a hotel, cinema, restaurants and retail in several new buildings intertwined with gardens, designed by internationally acclaimed Dan Pearson Studio. A series of outdoor terraces, bridges and staircases will form a public route through the building and act as spaces for work and production. Small and affordable tenancies are planned alongside a rooftop garden and community hall.

We were excited to steer this through multiple planning stages to achieve this unique approval.
