To develop a world-leading vertically integrated health and lifestyle precinct within Adelaide’s vibrant CBD thus creating an opportunity for this new community to integrate with the existing surroundings. By balancing the multiple uses and ground floor connections across the site and incorporating all uses and operational needs for the community, the precinct is targeted toward the next generation of residents.
Developing vertical living in the Adelaide CBD is challenging, however the client viewed the project as an opportunity to focus on the needs of the next generation of residents who are expressing a desire to living closer to the CBD to access amenities and services. The challenge was to facilitate a vertical community to attract new residents seeking access to key onsite lifestyle amenities, whilst integrating important medical and allied health facilities for residents.
The solution was to blend the private and public facilities within the development to increase community connection for residents. Creating the opportunity for community encourages visibility, interactions and activation by designing spaces that are inviting and welcoming for all users, whilst maintaining resident safety.
A ground-breaking project that will contribute to the growing CDB by providing a cohesive mix of public and private uses that will form the benchmark for the next generation of later living projects globally.
