Facts

  • The building has subtle concave curvature to the east and west façades and a well defined plinth and top to the building.
  • This was the tallest building in Adelaide from 1966-1968.
  • This streamlined, modernist building was designed in consultation with Prof. Rolf Jensen, in line with the Reserve Bank's policy of involving the local Professor of Architecture in building projects.
  • This building is regarded as a notable exponent of the Functionalist and International style of architecture by the Royal Australian Institute of Architects.
  • In 2008 the building received a makeover which involved the creation of a new entrance foyer and conversion of office space on the ground floor into retail tenancies, the conversion of the basement banking vaults into carparking and the conversion of the air-conditioning plant rooms into office space.
  • The building was designed with the aim of avoiding the bland, featureless aesthetic of many office buildings at the time.
