Project Showcase: King William Road

Posted on: 10-Jun-2020 11:00:00

King William Road is an iconic landmark of Adelaide. Filled to the brim with fantastic coffee stops, fashion stores and local eateries, for years this heritage road has offered its patrons all there is, and somehow, more.

In July of 2018, the City of Unley unveiled an exciting redevelopment plan to bring the historic road into the ever-changing future. From the genesis of the project, the council were incredibly vocal about creating a road that feels like a community, opting for a flexible streetscape. As part of the redevelopment, Best was honoured to provide the paving for the pavement and parking bays of this marvellous project.

While in conversation with the Council, we mutually agreed that it was essential to honour the legacy of King William Road, while also providing the road with an optimistic, exciting and stylish future. In order to achieve this, Best created a variety of bespoke products for this unique endeavour, exclusive to the style and flavour of King William Road. Our newly made products included an array of natural colours, including silvers, maroons and greens, evoking the aesthetic of the iconic road. 

Part of the Unley Council’s project brief desired products that both pedestrians and vehicles could comfortably walk and park on. As such, all our Terrazzo products provided were made in a 60mm thickness, allowing for hassle free access for pedestrians and vehicles. 

The King William Road redevelopment serves as an excellent reminder of how change can further enforce a legacy.
