ABOUT THE NEW MAYFIELD PROJECT
A NEW ENERGY IS SET TO REINVIGORATE INNER-CITY ADELAIDE.
The New Mayfield project, bordered by Sturt, Gilbert, Norman and Myers streets, will transform one of the city’s best-known sites. Bringing together location, lifestyle and contemporary design, it is a regeneration project that will spark life back into the Adelaide CBD.
Imagine this… a large, landscaped public square, surrounded by cafes, bars and shops. Just a short stroll away is Chinatown, Central Market and Rundle Mall. Residents will be able to look over this cityscape from a contemporary apartment. Stage one, New Mayfield House, offers one, two and three-bedroom apartments designed by award-winning architectural firm Woods Bagot.
ADELAIDE HAS BEEN EXTREMELY CONSERVATIVE WHEN IT COMES TO INNER-CITY LIVING. BUT THE PRESENT STATE GOVERNMENT SHARE A BROADER VISION OF WHAT ADELAIDE CAN BECOME.
Spread over 7,000 square metres, New Mayfield comprises three buildings varying in height from 10-17 stories with a podium levels for each of the towers. To animate the street, as well as providing an identity for each tower, the podiums are finished in either brick, stone or precast concrete each having a sculptural quality.
New Mayfield will be an attractive proposition for a broad range of people, from the young family wanting a low-maintenance home to the young professional, looking for the convenience of living close to the city. Then there are the empty nesters, who may also have a weekender. And of course, there are the astute investors, who understand the rarity of these apartments, both in terms of location and design.
Given the broad group of people who will be attracted to New Mayfield, Woods Bagot have created highly flexible modular style apartments, with one and two bedrooms, with the option of creating a third bedroom if required. The structural system within the buildings has enabled this flexibility. And although there are parklands at one’s doorstep, Woods Bagot have also included balconies with every apartment.
