The extensive repair work undertaken to the Adelaide Railway Station includes addressing historic damage, giving the building a new lease of life, and restoring its heritage value. The Adelaide Railway Station Restoration Project incorporates architectural features that reflect the simple and clean lines of the Free Classical – Beaux-Arts style in which the station was built.

The installation of Architectural lighting inside and outside of the station enhances the night-time presence whilst increasing the grand dimensions and striking geometric details.

The revitalised Adelaide Railway Station prompts a newfound connection to the historic building and culturally benefiting the public realm street scale of not only North Terrace, but the City of Adelaide for generations to come.
