Dunlop Site, Adelaide Road
The firm was approached to prepare a scheme for this site, which currently houses a telephone exchange. The concept was to create a scheme that opened up Hatch Street to the north with Adelaide road through the creation of a new street. The site to the north has recently been redeveloped and this scheme will be mutually beneficial to both sites. The 16-storey tower lies at the heart of the development. The impact of the tower on the existing streetscape is reduced through the creation of a more sympathetic seven storey building which fronts on to Adelaide Road. As part of this scheme we looked at the redevelopment of the adjoining 70‘s office buildings and their incorporation in to our urban design proposal.
