Buchan won the opportunity to work with SkyCity by creating a strong architectural design statement for Adelaide casino.

The design provides a bold statement for the redesigned riverside precinct. The unique form takes the shape of a crystalline ‘jewel’ with a layered, wav-linear glass façade to reference the nearby River Torrens. Its multi-faceted arrangement gives a shimmering luminous quality a confident and a sophisticated identity. It will allow Adelaide Casino to better compete with casinos interstate and overseas and provide a tourist drawcard for Adelaide.

The $300 million complex incorporates active and permeable frontages at ground level to interact with the public realm. There are more gaming spaces, a six-star all-suite hotel, celebrity and signature restaurants and bars, a rooftop bar, and function spaces for up to 750 people for banquets and events. It promises to be a world-class entertainment destination.

The development reinforces Buchan’s excellence in large-scale commercial design. We have also delivered casino projects such as The Star in Sydney, Skycity Darwin, and Wrest Point Casino in Hobart.
