With our client’s wish to pay homage to a secret garden that once occupied the site, it became our mission to let nature take its course for what would become The Springfield.
Greenery rises upwards with every level, evoking flowing and spacious private gardens throughout the homes. Glass is used seamlessly to carry and expose the flora to the world outside—a sharing and harmonious blending with the leafy streets of the Toorak neighbourhood.
Moments of verdant foliage can be found across the building, modulating in size while forming a living buffer that enlivens its residents’ enjoyment of privacy.
An Australian material palette comprised of natural timbers and stones has inspired what, in our opinion, is a timeless design. Adding international influences, warm neutrality and modernity is provided by using the materials with respect and purity. This allows each home to symbolise its residents’ unique tastes, background and influences.
Considered execution floods every living area with light, filling the open and abundant spaces throughout the day, and creating entirely distinct occasions and experiences. The inner living areas and leafy outside terraces engage one another through large double glazed glass walls.
Deep planters provide a connection with nature as well as shade and privacy with large trees. Perfect for entertaining on long summer days and well-earned evenings, each with their own BBQ facilities.
Onsen-style ensuite bathrooms blend practicality with comfort, whilst adjustable lighting sets the scene in the floor-to-ceiling marble space. Expansive vanity mirrors and glass reflects the open and welcoming mood of the home at large while containing plentiful storage for bathroom essentials.
