Architects Nexus Designs took inspiration from the sinuous lines, exquisite manufacturing, and incomparable vision of Rolls-Royce in the design of their flagship Melbourne showroom. Located at 420 Swan Street, Richmond, the space exudes luxury from every angle.
As the largest Rolls-Royce showroom in the Asia Pacific region, the architects spared no expense, creating a bespoke lounge, a full-service café, and a thoughtfully stocked bar. The showroom seamlessly flows from Atelier, where your bespoke Rolls-Royce vision is brought to life, through to the bar adorned with sleek black joinery housing historical merchandise and memorabilia.
The architects opted for an expansive north-facing frosted glass façade providing an ethereal glow across the six-car white-on-white vehicle display upstairs, and the vehicle showcase located one floor below.

The Handover Lounge is the hero of the showroom, where cars are theatrically unveiled against leather-clad wall panelling and custom ceiling lighting. It’s here in the lounge that car buyers can take advantage of the in-house vehicle customisation services, as well as the cosmopolitan bar.
Starkly minimalist in its design, the lounge is complemented by a range of Walter Knoll pieces such as the Fabricius chairs and the Jaan Living sofas. Specified in a luxurious brown leather, the Fabricius chair features a slim-line profile with sleek metal armrests that frame the slide-in shape.
Accompanying the Fabricius armchair is the iconic Jaan sofa in an off-white leather, a compact cube that floats on elegant legs in a balanced harmony of lightness and weight.
Combining the tradition of Scandinavian design and functional aesthetics with the charm of casual seating comfort, the Walter Knoll pieces deliver a powerful aesthetic that seamlessly aligns with the prestige of the Rolls-Royce name.
