    Project - 04.10.2018

    DBI was founded in Australia in 1980. For over 30 years, the firm has been driven by innovation in both form and function, putting the human experience as the centrepiece of every project outcome. Their design ethos is based on the seamless integration of the built structure, the direct environment in which it lives and the positive lifestyle

    The Spirit development will be an iconic tower overlooking the ocean from the heart of Surfers Paradise.  It will rise 89 storeys making it one of Australia’s tallest luxury residential buildings. It will deliver 479 luxury apartments, three separate recreation decks, three podium levels of high-end retail and a variety of fine dining restaurants. 

    Spirit by virtue of its scale will inevitably become a landmark for Surfers Paradise. The building enthusiastically embraces its landmark role expressing the vital importance of the cooling coastal breezes. Developed from a rigorous urban design analysis, the building’s podium is a direct extrapolation from the context responding to the urban rectilinear condition to the north and gently flowing to the park on the south. 

    For the display suite DBI Design chose Walter Knoll to introduce the elegance of salon culture with utmost comfort while the Neverending Glory lighting fixture from Lasvit is an unmissable centre piece as a dual story configuration.

    Spirit is sensitive and contextual while fulfilling its role as a signifier of the precinct.
