Designed with an emphasis on craftsmanship, developer Golden Age Group and architect Bates Smart envisions 85 Spring Street as a timeless building finely tuned to contemporary life.

The concept draws upon Rationalism, Modernism and the German philosophy of Gesamtkunstwerk to deliver a complete work of art across the external form, interiors and material palette. Taking a site-sensitive approach, Bates Smart has designed a quietly-confident building that harmonises with the prestigious local context. Impressive concrete formwork takes inspiration from Spring Street’s European character while custom brickwork recalls nearby warehouses. The sculptural building, public piazza and laneway extension integrate seamlessly with the surrounds to provide an enriching home in the CBD.
