BE INSPIRED - WORK DIFFERENT

Located in Melbourne CBD within the former headquarters of the Melbourne Steamship Company, the 25 King Street is home to Excelon Group (Level 2), a design-led property development group seeking to create community focused, timelessly designed and environmentally sustainable residential projects.

On Ground and First levels of the building, we have created 25 King Collective which offers a range of work spaces including desks and studio suites of varying sizes. While the building was constructed in 1889, it has been freshly refurbished to the design of renowned Melbourne architects Kennedy Nolan. The design retained many of the original features of the heritage building including the steamship company’s glass signage, original safe, the grand staircase, solid timber flooring, fire places, tall ceilings, arch windows and much more!

With a boardroom that seats 10, a meeting room that seats 6 and two other informal break out areas, all meticulously styled, you may be assured that your guests and coworkers are impressed as well as inspired.

Locally made fixtures and fittings are used throughout the space, including pendant and wall lights by lighting designer and maker Laal, bespoke leather strap joinery handles by Made Measure, Sayl task chairs by Herman Miller, Gubi chairs for the board room and custom plywood furniture made by our friends at Power to Make, a local design studio and CNC workshop.

Further, we have commissioned Australian artist Benjamin Tankard to create a series of 9 paintings of the steamships once operated by the Melbourne Steamship Company as a meaningful link to the history of the building. Each of these paintings are hung in the meeting rooms and each of our studio suites named after the ships on display.

The space of course includes high-speed fibre internet connection (symmetrical connection up to 50 mbps per person) , printing facilities and two fully equipped pantries complete with refrigerators, microwave ovens, dishwashers and Zip Hydrotaps. We are also able to arrange for car and bike parking with the operators of a commercial parking literally at our doorstep.

A BRIEF HISTORY

In 1884 shipping businesses James Deane and Co, Melbourne Coal Co and Hobson’s Floating Dock Co were sold to a private company directed by Hugh R Reid, Captain James Deane and Captain James McIntyre, and managed by D York Syme, establishing the Melbourne Coal, Shipping and Engineering Co. Reid held many public positions in Melbourne, including the President of the Chamber of Commerce whilst cousins and Port Phillip Sea pilots Deane and McIntyre were well known identities in shipping circles throughout Victoria.

In 1885, a brick building of three floors containing a store and offices was constructed on the subject site by builder James Carlton for the Melbourne Coal, Shipping and Engineering Co, and dubbed the ‘Shipping Exchange’ in Sands and McDougall street directories from c1892. Fire damaged the building in 1888, burning the roof and destroying the top storey and the entire contents of the building. This destruction, coupled with severe water damage to the other levels, resulted in the structure’s complete rebuilding the following year.

The three-storey building plus basement that now houses 25 King Collective and Excelon Group was erected on the site in 1889 to the design of architect Frederick Williams. In 1895 the Melbourne Coal, Shipping and Engineering Co was renamed for the last time, registering as the Melbourne Steamship Co. Until 1909 the firm operated from the ground floor of the building and Reid, Deane and McIntyre occupied offices on the first level, with the executors of Deane’s estate taking up his office from his death in 1900. Other tenants during this time included champagne and wine manufacturers, printing goods importer and oil and general merchants, among others.

By 1910 the Melbourne Steamship Co had expanded its offices to occupy all three floors of the building and by 1913 had vacated the premises at 25 King Street and re-established itself in a new building at 27-31 King Street next door. The company survived in these new premises into the 1960s, until the sale of its biggest and most well-known ship, Duntroon. 

 

THE ART COMMISSION 

Australian artist Benjamin Tankard was commissioned to create a series of 9 paintings of steamships that were once operated by the Melbourne Steamship Company. Each one painted in sepia, this series is a nostalgic link to the building’s maritime history.

The artworks adorn the walls of the Collective’s boardroom, meeting room and each of the studio suites.
