The Springfield, a vision for the future of Toorak living
Once the site of a sprawling private garden, The Springfield offers nineteen luxurious contemporary residences, which truly capture the spirit of the land.
Ground has broken on the highly anticipated Springfield development, in one of Toorak’s most prestigious pockets. Once the site of a sprawling private garden, The Springfield offers nineteen luxurious contemporary residences, which truly capture the spirit of the land.
Springfield is a unique collection of apartments, which has sprung from an untouched garden haven. Its residences seek to complement this magnificent backdrop by crafting spacious individual homes, elevating apartment living in a picturesque garden setting.
Marcus Chiminello of Marshall White is one of Australia’s leading agents and an authority on the luxury and prestige market. Chiminello says, ‘Springfield’s unique proposition is that each residence has been sympathetically designed to blend with the natural landscape of Orrong Road and Springfield Avenue boulevards.’
Acclaimed architect, Tisha Lee, and her team at K2LD have brought this vision to life, simultaneously balancing the imperatives of both liveability and beauty in design, capturing function and form.
‘We were inspired by that of Frank Lloyd Wright, by his consideration of craftsmanship, which seeks to knit together both the inside and outside of the building in a highly detailed and seamless manner,’ Lee says. Magnificent leafy terraces, by Jack Merlo encapsulate this essence, mingling with generously proportioned living spaces.
Strategically considered design was employed at every step to fortify these residences with flexibility, safeguarding them from the test of time. ‘We wanted to ensure that all the practicalities of day to day life were incorporated, from full size laundries, butler’s kitchens for entertaining and bedrooms and bathrooms with generous storage options,’ explains Lee.
Springfield’s interiors exude timeless elegance and longevity, employing a neutral palette of timber and stone, allowing the residence to be styled in a number of different ways as one’s tastes change over time.

‘Design that is honest in its expression, considered in its detail and not based on quirky forms and colour will stand the stand the test of time,’ Lee says.
The incorporation of green spaces and planting in contemporary homes is another important consideration, as we move towards higher density living and is one that can have multiple benefits for our wellbeing and mood.
As the population ages, there is an ever-increasing demand for well-proportioned, beautifully designed and low maintenance residences.
When looking for a high-quality apartment or off-the-plan development Chiminello suggests paying special attention to generous ceiling heights, intelligently laid out floorplans and, most of all, a great track record from the design and construction team.
