A Closer look at The Johnson Apartments Spring Hill

The Johnson Apartments in Spring Hill are set in the heritage-listed Main Roads Building on Boundary Street

Spring Hill’s The Johnson Apartments were completed September 2016.  Zoned for mixed use the hotel was converted from Main Road’s office building.  Designed by Viennese-born modernist architect Dr. Karl Langerd the Main Road building was heritage listed in June 2015.  While preserving the modernist legacy it has been converted to a Contemporary Australian design for urban living, retail and entertainment.  As one of the few Art Series Hotels, The Johnson’s name and design has been dedicated to Australia’s abstract artist Michael Johnson.  Original works and prints are housed onsite. Another famous Australian involved in the design was former Olympian Michael Klim, who designed the 50-meter lap pool and deck spanning the length of the 4 floor.

The Art Series Hotels’ dedicate the designs and names of each hotel to an Australian Modernist, which has also brought a new concept of hotel luxury to residential living.  There are 241 apartments and an additional 24 hotel rooms in The Johnson, which range from studios to 3 bed apartments.  More amenities include, but are not limited to, a front pavilion, corporate rooms for hire and a gym which are all accessible for both the hotel guests and residents.  All accommodation – whether you own and live in your apartment or are just staying as a hotel guest – includes Foxtel, utility bills, full service cleaning, security and public transportation. Definitely a unique concept!
