Roughly 45lvls 160m


From JPE Website:

Adelaide,
South Australia

Over the last 2 years
we have designed a
new ‘Signature’ building
behind the Supreme
Court in Victoria Square
and have suggested
a uniquely South
Australian architecture
for this preeminent tower
in Adelaide’s southern
CBD.

Organic and earthy,
the tower includes new
court offices, residential
accommodation and a
new gallery of indigenous
art. A public observation
deck is included for
unobstructed views over
the city, to the hills and to
the coast.

For what it's worth, the tower appears to be 39 occupiable floors + the void at the top.
Bottom 13 floors are office ( higher floor to ceiling heights ), followed by residential for the next 20 floors + the void + the top 6 residential penthouses = about 140m ?

Would you like to see a building like this grace our skyline?

THIS striking design has coincided with a State Government call for help to upgrade the ageing courts precinct.


The bold idea for this 40-storey building with observation deck and a Guggenheim-inspired indigenous gallery is the work of architects at JPE Design Studio aimed at solving long-standing issues with the aged and cramped conditions in the Supreme and District courts, as well as providing a tourism drawcard.

The copper-coloured skyscraper - 15m higher than the Westpac Building in King William St - is apparently inspired by the giant termite mounds of the Outback.

Towering over Victoria Square, the building would feature an Aboriginal culture gallery visible from King William St, with a spiral walkway similar to New York City's Guggenheim Museum.

Tourists would take in views of the city and Adelaide Hills from a "sky garden" observation deck and restaurant, while the bulk of the building would house a hotel, apartments or offices.


A smaller adjoining building would contain up to 50 courtrooms over 10 levels topped with a rooftop garden, freeing the existing Supreme and District court buildings for other uses.

JPE director Adrian Evans said the project, called Signature, was the product of an in-house design challenge.

"Anyone visiting Adelaide would have to visit it," he said.
"This needs a visionary, a premier or government or company prepared to get behind it."
Mr Evans said a potential billion-dollar price tag could be split between the government, which would pay for the courts, and private interests.

On Friday, the State Government called for submissions from the private sector to redevelop the site bordered by Gouger, King William and Wright streets. It is looking to consolidate the courts inside one block, as well as legal, government and private sector tenancies.

Great vision and boldness for design...even better than 123 Flinders.

If Adelaide wishes to be architectually progressive like Melbourne than should be behind this building.

When I look at the building (right half) I keep seeing a person's face.

Any news floating around on this vision/proposal ??? we need this :)
This is taken from a news article when this year's budget came out.

The State Government is considering building a new modernized courts precinct using a public-private partnership model, similar to the way the new Royal Adelaide Hospital is being funded. The budget contains $2 million in new funding for a concept plan.
