Hopefully this is a catalyst to more inspiring designs for future developments.

Should we have this as a Vision or has it been submitted to council?

It still hasn't been submitted to the ACC. So yes, technically, VIS, is a more appropriate title.

#Exclusive - 64 Currie Street Design Unveiled

Written by Howie Wednesday, 15 September 2010 16:16

Our dear friend Paul Pruszinski sent through more details about the 64 Currie Street development which has got the forum buzzing. These are the first renders we've seen of this exciting new development, and it's all quality! Enjoy.

Iconic 5-Star Hotel Plan Unveiled


Plans for a new $107 million 5-star hotel in Currie Street in the Adelaide CBD were unveiled today.

Designed by Pruszinski Architects for the Mattioli Group and set in the high-rise business precinct of the CBD, the new hotel will introduce the next generation of international business comfort to Adelaide and rank among the best in Australia.

With 301 suites, it will feature an elegant glass tower that rises 23 levels and is contained by curved eastern and western walls that taper to create a striking profile.

“The tower sits on a four-storey podium designed to respect and respond to an adjacent local heritage building and smaller scale streetscape,” Paul Pruszinski said.

The plans were today lodged with the Adelaide City Council and will also be assessed by the Development Assessment Commission (DAC).

Mr Pruszinski said the Currie Street hotel is inspired by a new generation of spa-focused design hotels emerging in Europe and Asia.

It will fill a void in the Adelaide market for corporate travellers, their partners and families, along with international tourists and other high-end visitors.

The Pruszinski team’s plan is a huge step forward for the quality, aesthetics and amenity of the Adelaide CBD.

The new hotel will feature the largest “standard” suite size for any hotel in Adelaide, enhanced by open-plan interior-design and designer furnishings and fittings.

Standard suite size will be about 33sqm, comfortably larger than Adelaide’s current average for 5-star hotel suites. Suites will range in size up to 161sqm for a “double corner”.

Pruszinski Architects is responsible for designing the best new high-rise buildings in Adelaide, including the nationally recognised mixed use Conservatory on Hindmarsh Square, which has won several state and national awards for excellence in urban design in 2009 and 2010. Other recent projects include the stunning Crowne Plaza Hotel and the award-winning 20 Hindmarsh Square apartments, both on Hindmarsh Square and the unique IPAD student apartments on Waymouth Street.

Mr Pruszinski said he was confident the plan would be well received by the DAC and Adelaide City Council.

Although it exceeds by six storeys the height limit for that part of the CBD, the iconic structure is planned for the corporate high-rise part of the city with high transit bus and pedestrian traffic, which effectively permits the additional height.

“It will be only 80 metres from Adelaide’s tallest building –Westpac House building on King William Street, which is nearing twice its height,” Mr Pruszinski said.

“The height of this hotel responds to the high-rise urban design of the surrounding area, creating a high quality destination for visitors to the city.”

The Mattioli Group acquired the 64 Currie Street site late last year and is in talks with operators of international 5-star hotels in relation to the planned new hotel.

It will be the second 5-star destination created in Adelaide by the architect-developer team of Pruszinski and Mattioli, and the sixth Adelaide CBD building delivered by the successful team.

In 2001 they delivered the 5-star Rendezvous Allegra Hotel on Waymouth Street, which was recently re-rated by AAA Tourism as one of only two 5-star hotels in Adelaide.

Key to the success of the new Currie Street hotel will be the experience of space, unique interior design and unhurried relaxation.

Every suite will feature floor-to-ceiling windows to offer an unrivalled panorama of the hills to the east, the gulf to the west, the Adelaide Oval and cultural precinct to the north and the Southern Vales and beaches to the south.

Other features of the plans lodged today are:

* Four dining options over three floors, offering a diversity of cuisines including a BBQ restaurant and an informal dining area by the indoor pools;
* Numerous spa and massage options spread over an entire floor – many not currently available in Australia;
* A drive-through entryway for cars and taxis that avoids street congestion at the front by directing all arrivals through the ground level of the building;.
* A slight slope away from Currie Street allows all “back of house” activity, such as goods and services delivery and staff entry and exit, to be confined to the rear of the building;
* Environmentally friendly design: heat from plant and equipment will be recycled to warm the in-door pools and hotel hot water; a three storey-high green wall the length of the building starting on the ground level, filtering air and light and lowering the need for air conditioning; the hotel will feature considerable rain water collection and re-use;
* A conference-specific floor for small and mid-sized events featuring abundant natural light and views;
* Mature trees on the footpath at the front of the site will be preserved.


Mr Pruszinski paid tribute to the entire project design team, including: developer, Mattioli Group; architect, Pruszinski Architects; structural engineer, PT Design; services engineer, Lucid Consulting; quantity surveyors, WT Partnership; town planners, Masterplan; traffic engineers, GTA Consultants; acoustic engineers, Sonus.

Whoa. The finish and quality looks exceptionally impressive! Good on them. I agree it will be well recieved by the council and DAC. Let's hope that the ACC don't squabble over height, given the design quality - its merits definetly warrant an exception.

Looks great.

There should be extra demand for hotel accommodation in the city once Adelaide oval is
finished by 2014, so hopefully it will go ahead.

Nothing short of fantastic - a real trendsetter for Adelaide - breaking away from the traditional box with a definite international 'feel' about it. Looking forward to seeing this one - with 115 KWS as well. Only disappointment is that ground level is rather similar to many other places. (not near as imposing or arresting).

I like it!

Again i suspect the ACC will take issue with lack of substantial setback, even thought Pruszinski has designed a 4 storey podium aligned with existing street scape.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Superb.

When this one gets through (there is massive demand for hotel space in Adelaide) it will easily be the best high rise building in Adelaide.

Nothing will come close.

Not only does it look good, but it also has a promising looking street presence. I'd expect the street frontage to mostly be restaurants. It'll be nice to see more activity down that end of Currie Street.
