85 Spring Street’s grand central podium and cantilevered overhang makes innovative use of concrete and textured metal to create a stunning first impression.
The prominent use of bespoke concrete and brick at 85 Spring Street provides a solid foundation for everyday life and brings a substantial new presence to the area. Inspired by nearby civic masterpieces, Bates Smart’s concept to cast the residential tower in a raw material imparts a sense of permanence and integrity. In homage to the classical sensibility of the area, the textural facade references the stonework of Parliament House and the warmth of traditional Parisian limestone. Yet, free of decoration, the building is unmistakably contemporary. To create a unified architectural expression, the structure’s base material is carried throughout the interiors and finished meticulously by hand.
The sophisticated amenities offered at 85 Spring Street enrich daily life in the building. Above the lobby on the first floor mezzanine, the communal lounge is a refined environment to relax, work or entertain. For more formal gatherings, there is a contemporary dining room and bar on the second mezzanine complete with canopy views. The residence is also equipped with a pool, gym and wine storage facilities for avid collectors.
The spacious interiors at 85 Spring Street are immersed in natural light and views to provide a seamless indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Each room is generously appointed with finely crafted natural materials, fixtures and fittings that continue the refined architectural vision. The neutral colour schemes and carefully considered finishings impart a serene atmosphere and allow residents to curate their ideal living spaces.
Discrete and atmospheric lighting highlights the artistic detailing of the interior and in the premium residences, a rainfall shower, deep bathtub and stone fireplace provide additional grandeur.
