We like to describe URB4N as a beautiful, boutique, low-rise Art Deco-esque building.
The Art Deco style of visual arts, architecture and design first appeared in France just prior to World War I. Its influence soon spread across the globe and became apparent in the design of buildings, furniture, fashion, cars, jewellery and even more mundane objects such as vacuum cleaners and radios.
Art Deco is notable for its symmetrical, streamlined, and simple visual aesthetic, which was in stark contrast to the more experimental, anti-traditional and unorthodox avant-garde style which was also popular at the time. At its peak, Art Deco luxury and glamour, while also reflecting social and technological progress.
During the Great Depression in the 1930s, Art Deco became even muted and began leaning heavily towards curving forms and smooth, polished surfaces.
We have some beautiful examples of Art Deco buildings here in Adelaide, including the stunning Piccadilly Cinema in North Adelaide, the old State Bank building in King William Street in the city, and the Hindmarsh Town Hall.
Art Deco architecture is increasingly appreciated by new generations who are drawn to the simplicity of style and design, and fortunately these wonderful local examples of Art Deco style have been carefully maintained to preserve this important architectural history.
The design of URB4N apartments incorporates many Art Deco principles, and you can see the influence of this style in the subtle curves and simple, elegant lines of the planned building.
