The Spring Street Penthouse by Kerry Phelan Design Office

The Spring Street Penthouse, located opposite Melbourne’s Fitzroy Gardens, appears as a tribute to the Memphis design movement. Its interior features bold shapes and eye-popping colours that are just as striking as its 360-degree views of the city.

A former residence of Australia’s first billionaire, Robert Holmes à Court, the penthouse’s most recent owner, businessman Greg Hargrave, engaged Kerry Phelan Design Office (K.P.D.O) to create a bespoke design. The four bedroom, 400sqm penthouse was gutted and the entire flow was changed to create an enfilade – doorways to each room are perfectly aligned in order to create expansive, unobstructed views when the doors are open.

Eclectic furniture and objects fill each room, including an original 1981 Oceanic lamp by Memphis designer Michele de Lucchi, a faux marble Louis XV Goes to Sparta sofa by Maurizio Galante for Baleri Italia and a limited-edition Rainbow Poly coffee table by Max Lamb.

The design pieces span the decades and K.P.D.O selected a truly timeless material for the flooring in key areas of the penthouse – Fibonacci Stone terrazzo tiles in Seascape and Dove Grey.

Seascape a subtle blue composition with muted white and light grey marble aggregate chips. Our Dove Grey terrazzo tiles are characterised by an array of neutral shades of white, grey, shell and browns to create a sophisticated finish. Both terrazzo tiles provide the perfect subtle backdrop for the colourful interiors at the Spring Street Penthouse.

The design of the Spring Street Penthouse forms the perfect foundation for a bold and extensive collection of furniture and objects. Kerry Phelan has described the brief for this project as ‘thrilling’ and we think the final result has the same effect.
