Shell Building, 1 Spring Street, Melbourne

"...the ideas they came up with, to respond to our demands were utterly ingenious! They really were like a family. I think they're the most astute, the most capable and the best organized building organization I've ever dealt with."

Harry Seidler, Architect

Designed by Australia's leading architect Harry Seidler (1923–2006), the Shell Building at Number 1 Spring Street is one of Melbourne's most distinctive corporate buildings. Laid out in Seidler's signature 'S' shape, the building has two lobby floors, two mezzanine floors, 24 office levels and a 300 space below ground car park. It is located at the corner of Spring and Flinders Streets, overlooking parkland, the famous MCG and the Yarra River.

Completed at the end of the 1980s by the Grocon Group, Number 1 Spring Street is the Australian headquarters of Shell and also houses government and private tenants.
