Some photos from the weekend of the paving and landscaping outside Lot Fourteen on North Terrace.
Thank goodness we've grown out of the mid-century attitude of "just tear it down and build something new" when it comes to anything heritage or architecturally significant. They're beautiful buildings and the landscaping makes them look stunning!
Agreed, however, I hope like they've done with the octagonal building at the front that they paint the yellow out of the bigger buildings to have that same white/black look, keep the contrast.

Great shots Andy! The space is definitely coming together well!

As an aside, is that orange core numbering I can see on the North Terrace student tower across the road?

Great shots Andy!

They really have done a brilliant job of restoring the facade's of these beautiful buildings.

They are. You could see the number 5 visible at the start of this week, with all of the Synergy construct branding then sitting above it.

Can finally see over the metal dust screens to see what is left of the old hospital:

Demolition in the northern zone (residential wings) was meant to start early this year. Though probably delayed by the pandemic, presumably it'll commence soon. Excited to see those ugly blocks torn down.

It would be so cool to see the rest of the Adl Uni development for ahead. This area would be transformed!

Love the paintwork on the buildings, but the landscaping looks so cold and soulless... Compared to the other end of North Terrace where there are elements of timber, stone, varying colour, lots of planting. This however reminds me a lot of Rundle Mall, and not in a good way.

I disagree about the white paint (I don't like it), but I am also disappointed that the design language (and material palette) of the main stretch of North Terrace hasn't been continued here. That said, I'm sure it'll a welcoming enough place to be once the scaffolding comes down and the landscaping matures.

It's baffling how it came about that this section has a different design to the other North Terrace sections. Looking at Andy's great pictures there is some continuity with pavement width, lighting and tree choice but that's about it. Why couldn't there been more coordination between the City Council and State Government? The council must have had some say in granting approvals to the streetscape.
The original North Terrace precincts masterplan released back in 2001 by was I recall pretty clear paving, landscaping choices etc. should be consistent as the project proceeded in stages from East to West Terrace. With this part, the North Terrace frontage has been treated more as a boundary of Lot 14 rather than part of the Terrace masterplan.
Don't get me wrong - it looks great and a big improvement but like others have mentioned on here above, it's intriguing how these design decisions come about. It can't have been a question of funding as the finishes are obviously of high quality.
Two steps forward, one backwards I guess.
