Woodhead and Denton Corker Marshall, architects in association, have won the Architectural Steel Design Award for the Adelaide Central Bus Station at the ASI South Australian Steel Awards.

At the National Awards, the Adelaide Central Bus Station received a High Commendation in the National Structural Steel Engineering Design category.

The project is a significant leap in quality from the pre-existing bus station, and sets the standard for terminal design in Australia.

When designing the station, Woodhead and Denton Corker Marshall say the strove to provide an architectural land mark that would offer an immediate sense of place, an environment that is light, airy, and welcoming with a sensory impact.

The bus station’s distinctive Mandarin Orange and crisply folded arcs that make up part of the façade create a contemporary imagery that reflects the new transport facilities.

Woodhead Project Principal, David King-Jones, says he is delighted with the project’s success which has enjoyed very positive responses.

"To win this award is recognition of the depth of talent within the Woodhead team that we as a company strive to foster and harness."
