Renew Adelaide’s extended commitment to revitalising unused spaces of Adelaide is particularly apparent when entering the offices of Super8. Focused on supporting brilliant people with great ideas, Renew’s ongoing support of our city’s creative industry through projects such as this Pirie Street office overhaul, see local talent remaining in and returning to Adelaide. Allowing creative professionals to stay competitive within a notoriously competitive market, the result is a combined achievement like no other. Thanks to Renew and endeavours like this one, the development of creative enterprise alongside the up-cycling of vacant space makes for a truly beautiful and thriving cityscape.
Super8 is not the beginnings of a new agency, it is “the launch of something new, the idea to create a collaborative group, a curated group of people with complementary skills.” Beryl Green and Coral Pink set the tone of the purpose designed space, with a distinct combination of open plan and individual workplaces perfectly reflecting the collaborative individualism that defines Super8. A colour coordinated table-tennis table, floating office spaces and even the occasional visit from Adelaide’s famed sausage dog Frank makes for a work environment of any freelancer’s dreams.
A unique talent scouting process lead to applicants giving an eight minute spiel about what they do in a speed dating like fashion. The result is a diverse mix of individuals, each excellent in their chosen fields.
