Ivory on Adelaide condo construction underway

“Inspired by the practice of carving ivory into elegant forms,” a building description on the project website says, “Ivory carves an identity of its own through a unique contemporary style that embraces a strategic interplay between solid and open architectural nuances. Unlike the traditional “glass box” design, Ivory’s form is defined through the use of solid ivory-coloured surfaces to create the building’s overall aesthetic presentation. Random voids are then “carved” out of the surface to create a playful spatial dynamic that truly sets Ivory apart.”

Construction is expected to continue until 2014. A building description is provided on the Ivory on Adelaide portfolio page of the Hariri Pontarini website. A November 12 2007 city planning report describes the Ivory on Adelaide development application in great detail.

Below are several building renderings that appear on the Ivory on Adelaide website, followed by photos I’ve taken of the condo site and early stages of construction.
