80 Collins Wins Award at 2022 World Architecture Festival

80 Collins, designed by UNStudio and Woods Bagot, took home the prize for mixed-use building at this year’s World Architecture Festival, capping off an award-winning year.

UNStudio collaborated with Woods Bagot, Seventh Wave, and Jouin Manku to design 80 Collins, a mixed-use project that reinvigorates and responds to the cultural significance of this well-known location.

This is the third award win UNStudio and its collaborators have received for this design. Earlier this year, 80 Collins was awarded the ULI Asia Pacific Awards for Excellence 2022 and Property Council of Australia National Innovation & Excellence Awards in Development Innovation.

Surrounded by history, luxury and business opportunity, these high-rise additions to the 80 Collins precinct transform this renowned address into a flexible, world class, mixed-use complex.

To the south, standing at 147 meters tall, a multipurpose steel structure is enveloped in an undulating facade. To the west, slotted neatly into Little Collins Street, a 100-meter-tall hotel becomes a concealed gem within the cityscape, with an interplaying facade of glass and aluminium complete with restaurant, business centre, gym, swimming pool and retail space, the new hotel brings 24-hour connectivity and programmatic diversity into this dynamic location.
