Building Frontages

Building Frontages

The connection between public footpaths and private buildings plays an important role in fostering a city in which people want to shop, eat, relax and socialise. Well-designed building frontages contribute to a rich and diverse city experience, and a good public realm encourages people to engage in civic and commercial aspects of city life.

The Building Frontages section of the Adelaide Design Manual promotes good outcomes for new buildings, redevelopment projects, and any other projects that impact public spaces. This section provides guiding principles that should be considered when designing building frontages, outlines the ways in which private buildings intersect with public spaces, and how public and private spaces can work together to create a more coherent, active, diverse and inclusive city centre.

The Building Frontages section should be read in conjunction with the Building Interface Guidelines available for download below.
