Adelaide Central Market Federal Hall Facade Conservation

Adelaide Central Market Federal Hall Facade Conservation

by Flightpath Architects

As a jewel in Adelaide’s heritage and cultural fabric, the Adelaide Central Market holds a special place for South Australians and tourists, alike. One of two historic ‘bookends’ to the bustling, world-renowned market which spans across a city block within, the Grote Street façade provides a bold public face and readily identifiable marker in the busy streetscape.

Its conservation has elevated this fine original design and has ensured longevity for current and future generations to enjoy. The exceptional characteristic tuck-pointed brick is almost unrivalled on this scale in South Australia.

A careful and sensitive approach to conservation works in line with accepted heritage philosophy and tight collaboration between client, Council, architect and specialist builder results in a project which rejuvenates the retail market experience and preserves the unique qualities of the place for generations to come.
