Repurposed Adelaide warehouse and monolithic Brisbane apartments make 2015 WAN shortlist | Architecture And Design

Woods Bagot and Tridente’s collaborative effort in repurposing an Adelaide car manufacturing warehouse in into a vibrant mixed use precinct has earned them a place on the six-strong shortlist for the program’s Adaptive Reuse category.  The Main Assembly Building and Pods (MAB) at Tonsley Park, Adelaide was commended by the jury who said they loved the way the architects repurposed the existing structure of the old Mitsubishi manufacturing building, saving 90,000 tons of carbon without compromising on functionality. “It’s taken a dinosaur of hugely embodied energy and turned it into a contemporary series of places of quality and functional relevance,” said one jury member.   “It’s beautiful, I love the way they’ve retained most of the structure,” said another.
