Port Adelaide, South Australia
Dock 27 is designed in a way that the mass, form and scale of the development do not compromise the character of the neighbourhood. The building is physically separated from the historic built form by both the at-grade car park and North Parade, such that the increased height sits comfortably in the context without affecting the prominence of the historic streetscape to the south-east.
The materials such as red brick and steel perfectly complement the character of the locality. The setback of the tower element behind the podium facade also attenuates the perceived scale of the building from the immediate surrounds.
