Adelaide’s most beautiful new architecture

The South Australian Architecture Awards were held last week, so we’ve collated images of the winning projects from around the CBD for your viewing pleasure.

  • Words: Johnny von Einem

Each year, the Australian Institute of Architects travels across the country looking for the best examples of architecture in every state and territory.

On Thursday, 2 July the winners of the South Australian awards were announced, in the competition’s first digital ceremony, due to the you-know-what.

Of this cohort of exemplary structures, 12 are located within the CBD, and so CityMag has collated each of these projects below in a calming gallery of beautifully shot spaces.

Some will be familiar to regular readers of our food and beverage content, while others will offer a glimpse into how far a decent budget can go when you’re designing a space for a multi-national company. (Here’s looking at you and your fancy office, BHP.)

Scroll on for a soothing tour through the Adelaide CBD.
