Global Student Accommodation
Adelaide, South Australia
The proposed development for GSA student accommodation is to be an exemplary project for Adelaide, with a focus on new types of living in a collegiate environment, and a focus on the life and learning of students.
Currently under construction, the curved precast concrete columns and associated structures can be seen reaching new heights weekly.
Being located on North Terrace required a building that would sit amongst the wide variety of architectural styles, but most importantly, seek a civic scale and presence to allow it so sit comfortably in this important streetscape.
As a contemporary tower, we have been able to express visually the uses and activity within, and highlight the innovative nature of its use with the inclusion of significant communal living areas for students at different vantage points within the building. These act as a means to occupy all parts of the proposal. GSA North Terrace creates a new type of Urban College, furthering the nature of what constitutes a civic building and how Student Accommodation can contribute positively to the City.
