84 Halifax Street

Halifax Street
Adelaide, South Australia

This new insertion into our urban fabric demonstrates the value that small, incremental design moves have in contributing towards a street and neighbourhood character. Spaces are created that flow from indoors to out, from street to public to private space. The results are open, crafted spaces that are exuberant in sharing a love for design, functionality, materiality, craftsmanship and community.

The total site design arranges spaces to connect with the street sharing the busy-ness of the public realm with the chaos of a small bar and café. The open Halifax Street façade connects directly to the upper level courtyard drawing in north-facing sunlight and ventilation to the internal spaces, bringing light and environmental comfort to what would otherwise be a dark, south-facing shop-front.
