Lot Fourteen is the most significant act of urban renewal in Adelaide at present. A vast site that is adjacent to the Adelaide Botanic Gardens and will in time include an exceptional Aboriginal Art & Cultures Centre, Innovation Hub designed by John Wardle Architects, multiple cultural and commercial buildings as well as flexible accommodation. 

Renewal SA engaged Right Angle Studio to develop a set of guiding documents to not only clarify the Place Vision but also to motivate stakeholders as the project moves out of the theoretical and into the delivery stages. 

Working closely with the client, multiple government agencies, an economic consultant and the design team, Right Angle was able to simplify the place vision for Lot Fourteen and identify many opportunities for elevating the project from what could have been a grab-bag of disconnected buildings into a coherent, connected and creative precinct.

Right Angle Studio’s work on Lot Fourteen has now been presented to the South Australian Premier, Chief Executive of the Department of Premier and Cabinet and the Chief Entrepreneur. It is used by design, marketing, economic and leasing teams as the key guiding document. 

“Lot Fourteen will be a hub that will drive technological innovation and be the home of unique arts and cultural facilities that will enhance growth in South Australia’s cultural and tourism economy.”
