CityMag x S9 | The show is all around you

CityMag's first edition for 2023 features an opinion piece by Associate Interior Designer, Jaana Bithell — 'The show is all around you'.

With the city preparing for the upcoming festival season, Jaana stops to appreciate the detail and thought that goes into creating the impermanent spaces popping up throughout Adelaide. She talks on design decisions being integral to the unique functionality of venues intended to amplify sound and movement.

"My role as a design professional is to listen, question, challenge and develop an understanding of our client and the people who use the spaces we are creating. The aesthetic design of a space is just one of the many considerations that cross my mind."

The District at SkyCity reflects this thought process. Jaana highlights the design complexities involved in creating a destination open-air live music venue and micro-brewery in the middle of the first floor of a building that is more than 150 years old.
