Where?House in the Argus building
the corner of La Trobe and Elizabeth streets

By SASHIMI architecture + design

from archidail.com

Quote:
Architects: SASHIMI architecture + design
Location: The Argus, Melbourne, Australia
Production Team: Sasha Hadjimouratis, Starr Guzman, Kevin Karlberg, Steve Ward, Louis McCoy
Year: 2012
Video: Tooth & Claw
Photographs: Christine Francis Photography

Event Producers: Marksthespot & The City of Melbourne
Audio Visual and Stage Producer: 4ward Productions
Fitout Construction: Be Herbitual
Interior Projection Mapping: Kit Webster
Exterior Projection Mapping: Projection Teknik
Stage Props And Visuals: Form Interactive


Where?House was the Hub of Melbourne Music Week 2012, a 10 day pop-up event space held in the Argus building. The iconic yet dilapidated building on the corner of Elizabeth and La Trobe Streets was transformed into a series of spaces hosting live and electronic music, seminars and workshops, a dining hall and bars, vintage clothing, film screenings, projections and art installations.

The existing building, in its crumbling state, compelled each outcome of insertion. Each installation was governed by the constraints of the existing conditions. Balancing the integrity of the event space and safely hosting 1200 persons at any one time was challenging. Upon initial access to the site it became immediately evident that circulation was going to be one of the first most difficult issues to tackle with jumps in slab levels, unfinished floor surfaces, the requirement for stairs and no covered roof. The production team entered a decaying space and slowly began injecting new life forms.

At the event launch the building was breathing again; filled with music, art, food, light and people.

The intention to evoke the warehouse party culture of the early 90’s meant the fitout was kept to a minimal and raw industrial look. Scaffolding was a reoccurring material that was used unconventionally to create picnic table furniture and service fronts for the food vendors and main bar.

The cave-like main dance floor area came to life with projection mapping that changed daily. As the only ticketed area (apart from ticketed events in The Learning Curve – Powered by Intel), the main stage was approached by unassuming visitors.

Entering from La Trobe Street, the main stage was discovered after walking through a wide screened corridor flanked by fencing and a light installation (Image 3) created by Geordie Barker. Turning at the corridor’s corner and following the sounds of reverberating music the full impact of the warehouse space was revealed.

The first floor dining hall, bar and lounge areas were open and free to the public from 11am-11pm each day. The two temporary gantry style stairs were carefully designed to negotiate access in the existing slab void between deep steel beams and formed a pocket of space at ground level as a meeting area and designated smoking area. The stairs were inserted in the cavity void allowing people to experience the view around the two open levels and up through the giant empty space towards the sky.

The market-style first floor also hosted the SONOS Sonic Garden which was filled with plants, lounges and a herb garden. People gathered to eat and drink around the garden spaces whilst listening to live DJ’s and browsing the vintage market.

e Learning Curve (Powered by Intel) workshop space was designed based on the logo curves of event partner Intel. The room was constructed out of 3.6m high natural plywood walls which created a creative learning space nestled in the back corner of the first floor. Music seminars, presentations and workshops were hosted within the Learning Curve (Powered by Intel) which was located adjacent to the free Intel Wifi Lounge.

Where?House gave Melbournians a once in a lifetime experience to wander through the mysterious Argus Building.

Great update, Jack Daniel!

Some smaller projects in Melbourne's east end: 108 Flinders Street and Phoenix (both residential) and the AIA building (offices for the architects' association). Phoenix is Melbourne's skinniest apartment building.

567 Collins Street (125m/410 feet/29 levels) is filling a long vacant site on Melbourne's most prestigious office street. Melbourne has very few high rise office developments underway because most corporations elect to build large campus style offices in Melbourne's booming Docklands precinct. 567 will be particularly welcome because it will hide an ugly multi-storey car park.

The Altus (115 metres/37 levels/377 feet), 238 Harbour Esplanade, Docklands, Melbourne will start early 2014. ParkRoyal will operate the hotel component and Moull Murray are the architects.


A $300 million hotel and apartment complex to grace Docklands
By Nicola Trotman
Tuesday, 22 October 2013
Minister for Planning Matthew Guy has announced a $300 million hotel and apartment complex in Docklands, to be known as The Altus.

Guy launched the 4.5 star hotel and apartment complex yesterday, which will be situated on the corner of Harbour Esplanade and Dudley Street.

The Altus will feature 281 guest rooms and suites, 27 serviced apartments and 299 residential apartments across 37 storeys.

“Docklands is continuing to deliver state of the art buildings that are rejuvenating the area,” says Guy.

“Once completed, The Altus will be part of a vibrant and exciting precinct in which to work, live and to visit.

“The Altus adds to a growing list of top class accommodation, dining and entertainment

venues in the Docklands, which provides access to world class sporting and music events, shopping, fine dining and recreational activities,” says Guy.

Construction is scheduled to commence in early 2014 and will create over 400 construction jobs and once completed in 2016, 150 hotel jobs.

“The Victorian Coalition Government is continuing to transform the Docklands into a waterfront destination that will be home to 20,000 residents and 60,000 workers upon completion in approximately 2025.

“Investments like the new $43 million community precinct that will feature the Docklands Library and Community Centre, Dock Square and Docklands Family Services and Boating Hub are creating a vibrant and exciting suburb.

“The $15 million Dock Square will provide 2,500 square metres of landscaped open space for residents and visitors to enjoy the outdoors and maintain active lifestyles,” says Guy.

The last remaining piece of major developable land in Docklands, a 2.5-hectare site diagonally across from Southern Cross Station, has now been contracted.

It will be developed into a $1.6 billion precinct, linking central Melbourne to Docklands.

Guy says nearly all 140 hectares of Docklands’ developable land is now contracted for development, with 50% of the land developed into the newest part of Melbourne’s CBD.

A builder (Multiplex) has just been appointed for what will be one of Melbourne's most upmarket apartment buildings: 35 Spring Street (166 metres/42 levels/545 feet). It is opposite the Treasury Gardens and just a few steps from State Parliament. Demolition of the old office block on the site starts early 2014. Renders courtesy of Curtain.
