SkyCity Adelaide Expansion Project


A grand sculptural gesture, SkyCity Adelaide is at the heart of the commercial and cultural rejuvenation of the Riverbank Precinct.

Ethereal and translucent, sinuous and fluid glass curtains flow and shimmer like a sequinned gown. Its bold form and confident identity statement create an enduring and sophisticated international icon for Adelaide.

A series of interconnected entertainment and hospitality spaces and 24/7 activated public realm entices and delights visitors to this dynamic and memorable place.

The project realises the full potential of its siting; it restores, unifies, celebrates and revives a previously disjointed assortment of underutilised and isolated buildings and spaces, integrating both the heritage and expansion buildings with each other and with the renewed public realm.

The new building’s design creates a contemporary glittering architectural jewel that highlights the grandeur of the existing heritage building. SkyCity Adelaide is a city-shaping catalyst development, elevating the urban fabric of its surrounds.
