Kristin Green Architecture, Spring Street Grocer – IDEA 2020

Kristin Green Architecture, Spring Street Grocer

Democratic and theatrical flavours are infused in this boutique grocery outlet in Melbourne, courtesy of its Parliament House and Princess Theatre neighbourhood. Layers of historic and cultural references play out with an arresting frieze overhead. Gelati bar joinery extrudes inwards to the store, where serpentine shelving entices customers towards a central stair and cheese shop below. Unique usage and detailing of local and readily available products capture the imagination despite a strict budget.
