Best Design awarded to East End development

By / 12th of May, 2014

A NEW development in the East End of Adelaide, South Australia, has won ‘Best Design – Project’ at the Rapid Urbanisation Conference organised by the London Summit of Leaders.

The project, designed by firm Loucas Zahos architects and built by Maras Group, was praised for its preservation of cultural heritage, design, amenities, innovation, environment sustainability and special key design features, such as night-time illumination of the façade and the largest wall mural in Adelaide.

Loucas Zahos' entry beat out competitors from UAE, Brazil, Turkey, Spain, Sweden and China.

The building features Burger Theory licensed restaurant on the ground floor and five levels of office accommodation, housing firms such as Cox Architecture, Kelly Hazell Quill Lawyers, Interfleet Technology and Brown Sauce Media.

“This came totally out of the blue given the very high calibre of entries from across the globe but testament to the quality of projects that we produce right here in South Australia,” Maras Group managing director and chief executive Steve Maras said.

The six-storey building can be found at 8-10 Union Street.
