Creslin Estate encaptures the Anzac Highway corridor connecting the Adelaide Hills and CBD to the Glenelg coastline. Along this metaphor the second building in the transition sits between the rural and urban landscapes.

Taking inspiration from the River Torrens, the building mimics the undulating levels of Adelaide hills with its staggered floor pattern and a unique walkway that spirals down through the levels.

A river runs through the building in the central atrium and throughout the corridors of the ground floor. The tall central atrium brings light and ventilation into the core of the building as well as creating a welcoming communal space for tenants to use and enjoy, an opportunity for community gardens or socialisation. 

The form is drawn from surrounding city patterns by following planes, build lines and surrounding architecture to generate an abstract geometric shape.

The estate has twenty dwellings including in seven studios, seven town homes, three two- and three three-bedroom apartments to house many different groups, families, couples or individuals.
