Project Showcase - Port Adelaide Plaza™ Shopping Centre

Posted on: 28-Oct-2021 12:24:34

Steeped in maritime history, Port Adelaide is known for its well-preserved 19th-century pubs and hotels, and now you’ll find trendy restaurants, cafes and watering holes popping up all over the suburb.

The totally refurbished Port Adelaide Plaza™ Shopping Centre by BADGE Constructions was unveiled in October 2021, after undergoing a significant redevelopment since 2018. The largest retail development of its kind in the area for more than 40 years, the new Plaza now accommodates more than 70 stores and services across 29,000 square metres of space.

Best’s supply and lay service offers customers a complete paving solution and peace of mind that their high-quality pavers will be laid perfectly, with attention to detail.

Best’s stunning Terrazzo Tiles were used throughout the project, in the iconic Vecchia Scuola Black Series. Best’s Terrazzo Tiles feature a range of coloured stones, including granite and marble, set into the surface of the tile, and polished for a beautiful finish.

The Architect behind the centre’s design, Brown Falconer, hit the brief creating a timeless, contemporary space for local residents using natural, robust materials that help tie the centre to the area’s heritage roots. The redesigned space helps create a sense of place, identity and pride for those that shop there. Terrazzo Tiles were the perfect choice for Port Adelaide Plaza™ Shopping Centre, offering beautiful contrast to the many red brick features woven throughout the upgraded centre. Terrazzo is itself steeped in history, having originated in Italy in the 15th century. The beautiful stone finish of Terrazzo Tiles invokes a sense of luxury and offers a durable surface that can withstand the high foot traffic of public retail spaces.
