Coming Home

101 Collins Street, Melbourne, VIC

Gillie and Marc love a challenge. When the artists were commissioned by 101 Collins Street – a Melbourne landmark and home to some of the city’s most influential business people – they knew they had to bring some warmth to this cold and emotionless skyscraper.

A water feature sits in the foyer which the artists wanted to utilize. They made Coming Home, two stunning bronze swans with wings out in full span to show them mid flight, flying home. The artists added a marble plinth just under the surface of the water so the swans look like they’re flying out of a pond. It created an instant atmosphere of companionship in Melbourne’s hectic business district.
