Project description:
This new boardroom facility for Electranet’s corporate headquarters in Adelaide is located within a converted Heritage listed sub-station in Rymill Park.  The brief was to provide a world class executive meeting facility, commensurate with the expectations of major international corporations who are the company’s shareholders.

Our design response reflects the innovation and technology inherent in ElectraNet’s core business activity of electricity transmission.  Features of the new facility include state of the art audio-visual and teleconferencing facilities, a sliding wall panel which conceals heritage windows to the western elevation and the ‘Rah’ lighting system, strongly suggestive of power grid infrastructure.

The Heritage listing of the building required consultation with heritage advisors from the Adelaide City Council and careful consideration during the design, documentation and implementation of the fit-out to protect and preserve the existing features and fabric of the building.
