Fakten

  • As part of the building's re-development the ground floor lobby will be restored to its former 1940s glory.
  • The building’s formal architectural value lies in its early, well executed ’modernist’ influenced form and ornamentation; applied to a commercial multi-storey structure.
  • The building is acknowledged as the only large-scale example of ‘inter-war stripped classical’ architecture in Adelaide, and is one of the few high integrity examples remaining in Australia.
  • This building is regarded as a notable exponent of the Functionalist and International style of architecture by the Royal Australian Institute of Architects.
  • This building survived a 1988 proposal to demolish it, and replace it with a $45 million, 18 level office tower.
  • This building is State Heritage listed.
  • On March 19, 2007, plans were approved by the Adelaide City Council for the conversion of this building into a 121-room hotel.
  • Although the building is reminiscent of classical proportioning systems, the absence of adornment and the clarity with which the building’s materials are expressed is testament to the expression of the architects’ ‘modernist’ ideals.
  • The solid, freestanding building expresses its verticality through the incorporation of seven storey high recesses, dressed with render detail fluting under the windows.
  • The design of the façade is austere, with restrained and abstracted use of decorative elements.
