Shed 26 Port Adelaide

Sometimes, when we can, we like to explore ideas or add to the debate around architecture and urban development. In relation to Port Adelaide, we have always been interested in the interweaving of the existing with the new. This is speculative proposal for the redevelopment of Shed 26 we did a couple of years ago. Located in the western section of the inner harbour of Port Adelaide, the building is an important link to the industrial history of the place and has the potential to provide a key piece in connecting semaphore to Port Adelaide.

We were concerned with activating the site and opening it up to a range of uses that operate across different times. It incorporates community venues, restaurants, offices, and short-term accommodation. The design also aims to retain the huge volume of the internal space – or at least a sense of. This has been achieved through the insertion of a series of singular elements and carefully managing the ‘left-over’ spaces, creating a large internalised landscape.
