At Moda, we genuinely care about the finer details. With High & Spring, though, our attention to detail went beyond material selections and the apartments themselves to deliver our signature element on this project — a wine cellar and tasting room that rivals the professionals.
This unique space allows residents to securely store their wine collections in top-grade refrigeration systems, while the community tasting area gives residents the opportunity to sit and chat a while over a glass of their favourite vintage.
Ben Portet, of award-winning Dominique Portet Winery in the Yarra Valley, provided guidance on every aspect of the design, from consulting on the best refrigeration to the selection of natural timbers and the handcrafted furniture.
Every tiny detail is designed to enhance the wine tasting experience, including our selection of a neutral colour palette, ensuring residents and their guests can experience the true colour of the wine they’re tasting.
With High & Spring we’ve delivered outstanding architectural detailing, from stunning recycled timber — flowing from exterior features to the interior spaces — and richly textured off-form concrete, to natural copper which improves with age, developing a unique patina over time.
