Top Spring Australia strongly believes in the role art can play in altering one’s experience in urban spaces, in both a physical and a non-physical sense, and is constantly exploring how art can integrate and interact with the urban landscape. By engaging and collaborating with a wide spectrum of artists, the company adds a personal touch to its projects that distinguishes them from others in the marketplace.

Top Spring has also recently partnered with the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia to support its significant collection of Australian art. Working closely with the museum, Top Spring is directly helping Australian artists through this important partnership.

Arms outstretched like a sculptural welcome home beacon, the Syconium artwork by Jade Oakley flows from the Munro House entrance into the lobby, where it dances across the walls and ceiling. The solid copper sculpture is inspired by the local Port Jackson Figtree and the site’s legacy as Alexander Macleay’s garden. The work opens a dialogue between history and the contemporary property’s verdant landscaping, sleek architecture and interiors.
