Zaha Hadid Architects unveiled new renderings for the 'Stacked Vases' tower it plans on building in Melbourne's business district.

This modular tower will be occupied by the Mandarin Oriental hotel group and is expected to open in 2023. The tower will be located on Collins Street, the center of Melbourne's bustling business district. The 185-meter tall building will be comprised of four, white filament-covered sections stacked on top of one another. Oblong window openings break through the white lattice-like shell.

Each quadrant of the four vases will function as a different area of the hotel -- one section is for hotel amenities, another for permanent residents, a third for bespoke guestrooms and the last for hotel suites. The Stacked Vases hotel will have 196 guest suites, 148 apartments and the lowest roof block will house a planted terrace.
