Categories Consumerism The new Myer Post author By Daniel Post date Tue 1 February 2011 13 Comments on The new Myer The inside of the new Myer in Bourke Street is quite spectacular. They’ve managed to create a very impressive light-filled atrium that goes all the way up to the roof. Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInRedditLike Loading...

Reminds me very much of Selfridge’s in Birmingham. Not in style as such; but certainly in substance! Loading... PS In Selfridge’s you’d almost certainly get a lot of hassle for taking photographs such as these! Loading... Yes, you’ve invaded the privacy of Myer by taking these photos. Don’t know how you can live with yourself… Loading... It’s a very impressive space, now they just need to do something about the Lonsdale Street frontage. It’s quite beautiful, but they have painted everything in one colour, including the windows. Loading... Oh wow! I’ll have to check it out on my lunch break tomorrow… Loading... Are the upper floors open yet? I’ve been up to level 4 but the rest wasn’t open yet. Meanwhile what is going to happen to the Lonsdale store? They’ll have to shut it eventually… which is going to reduce people walking through myer quite a lot (and David Jones as well!). Loading... Looks like an updated version of Melbourne Central to me… Loading... Daniel you need to allow editing of comments lol. The upper floors are now open though it appears some areas are inaccessible. The new Home Entertainment/PC area is pretty impressive, though the same prices means I’m unlikely to ever buy anything there. Some gorgeous views of the Post Office Clock though. Loading... It looks like it was designed right out of the Gruen transfer handbook http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gruen_transfer It’s a bit tacky and overboard like most malls and casinos, trying to look as though they have architectural merit, the one in Birmingham may have come from the same catalogue. Loading... Selfridge’s Birmingham store was designed by a practice called Future Systems. See http://www.future-systems.com/architecture/architecture_03.html Loading... Phillip, the entire Lonsdale Street store, the old DJ Home Store, Henry Frances chemist building and that wierd shop on Little Bourke Street which sold mens shoes are all being knocked down by the friendly folk who run and part own Chadstone, Colonial First State, so that they can build the Melbourne Emporium, a son of Chadstone which will sit between Myer and Melbourne Central. Loading... It’s a pitty they replaced the old attendant operated lifts they had with new ones. Loading... Comments are closed.
