This project, due to start on site in early 2014, proposes an eighteen storey mixed-use building to create fifty, one, two and three bedroom and penthouse apartments. At ground floor commercial uses are sensitively configured within the volume of the existing building to provide activation to the street and to the wider square. Office suites at the lower levels provide further street activation and enhance the vibrancy of the overall development by creating a sense of address and a place for living.
The design approach involves the sensitive re-purposing of an existing heritage listed building whilst creating a new, efficient, innovative and contemporary mixed-use residential development above. The apartments are designed to exploit the buildings prime orientation and unimpeded aspect, either across one of Adelaide’s most significant green squares or to the coast. Natural daylighting and cross-ventilation will afford a high level of resident amenity, complemented by large open-plan layouts, extensive balconies and terraces and quality interior finishes.
The mix of apartment types and configurations has been sensitively designed to be flexible and adaptable to attract a range of tenants and to ensure the building is inherently sustainable.
The final proposals were the result of an exhaustive iterative design process which necessarily included key stakeholders including Adelaide City Council, Development Assessment Commission, Heritage SA and the Office of the Government Architect.
