85 Spring Street
CBD, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Spring Street is one of Melbourne’s most outstanding streets. Beautiful parklands are complemented by some of the city’s most magnificent historical buildings including the State Parliament of Victoria, Windsor Hotel and the Treasury Building.

Inspired by the location and the historic sensibility of the site, the design for 85 Spring Street uses strong and enduring materiality to create a unique tower. The articulation of sculptural contemporary geometry provides a clear architectural expression and distinguishes the façade as beautifully crafted and stacked concrete frames.

The 39 level tower incorporates 145 apartments and exclusive amenities such as concierge services, private dining room, wine cellar, lounge, gym, steam room and pool.

An overriding theme within the project is the emphasis on craftsmanship and exquisite detailing. The concrete of the façade is shaped in such a way that it is comparable to a handcrafted piece of furniture or joinery. The concrete geometry of the façade wraps around the apartment balconies, and extends inside, creating a unified language between the exterior and interior. This device also helps to optimise and frame the impressive views from the inside outwards.

The appreciation of craftsmanship is particularly apparent in the design of the interiors. A neutral palette emphasises the material selection of stone, timber and metal. Distinctive features include a cantilevered stone island bench, which echoes the architectural expression of the building, and is accompanied by bespoke tapware and lighting.

The project is regarded as a ‘total piece of art’, where the architecture, interior design and material palette work together in harmony.
