SOTHEBY'S AUSTRALIA RETURNS TO THE 'PARIS END' OF MELBOURNE'S COLLINS STREET

Sotheby's Australia is delighted to unveil our new prestigious location in Melbourne.  The historic building, located at 14-16 Collins Street, Melbourne, lies at the heart of Melbourne, the city that has been the setting for countless illustrious sales and world auction records for Sotheby's Australia.

Located at the 'Paris End' of Collins Street, Sotheby’s Australia’s is open to the public to view and purchase from our changing displays of art, design and jewellery in addition to participating in our Melbourne auctions which will be held on location in a purpose designed auction room.  Sotheby's Australia joins other leading luxury brands on Collins Street, including Cartier, Dior, Georg Jensen, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Hermes, Louis Vuiton, Paspaley, Prada, and Salvatore Ferragamo.

As part of the refurbishment, Sotheby's Australia lowered the ground floor, to provide direct street and disability access and provided 4.8 metre ceilings for display.  A new lift was installed within the original location to service all floors of the building.  Sotheby's Australia appreciates the support of the following in the refurbishment process; architect Simon Greenwood of Simon Greenwood Architects, project manager Simon Mansell at HSB Consulting and builders from Arete Australia. 

Geoffrey Smith, Chairman of Sotheby's Australia, commented: 'We are thrilled to announce Sotheby's Australia's return to Melbourne's Collins Street.  In recent years Sotheby's Australia has dramatically increased its market share for the sale of the most significant works of art in Australia.  Our new Melbourne premises will enable us to expand and diversify, creating exciting new spaces for auction previews, exhibitions and events.  In 2016, we had the opportunity to acquire and refurbish one of the few remaining grand old buildings on Melbourne's renowned Collins Street, which was in desperate need of love and attention.  We have meticulously maintained the integrity of the building while developing luxurious spaces to showcase works of art, design and jewels.  Our team of specialists are greatly looking forward to welcoming existing and new clients to our rich and diverse program of forthcoming events.  Our new home on Collins Street provides a fresh and dynamic environment to exhibit and auction outstanding works of art.  It is the fitting home for one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious luxury brands.'
