The Heart of the Uni SA City West Campus
JPE were selected as Principal Consultant in partnership with Snøhetta, the award winning Norwegian firm, and Adelaide’s Jam Factory, to design and deliver Pridham Hall, a transformative strategic project for the University of South Australia. The new heart of the Uni SA City West campus, Pridham Hall accommodates over 2,000 students and guests for graduation ceremonies, a new home for UniSA Sport and provides flexible office and function areas. Multi-purpose sports facilities include a hall with multi-use courts, a 25m pool and gym facilities with the ability to curate social sports activities in the lobby spaces. Accessible external public amphitheatres fold to the ground plane to the north and west flanked by floating green gardens, integrating into the existing Høj Plaza for students, visitors and the Adelaide community to enjoy. A democratic place of celebration and renewal; Pridham Hall is a new public realm typology for Hindley Street and a benchmark for socially focused, educational development in the city.
