Project Details

203 North Terrace, Adelaide City
Number of Rooms / Buildings
35 stories, 367 rooms

Extended and detailed preliminary design stages were required for the successful delivery of this project. The tower also needed to retain its heritage-listed façade.

Access challenges to the site, via an adjoining property, required teams to re-route the unloading programs and container deliveries to accommodate access requirements.


The AJK Outfitters’ team collaborated with our client at every stage of the project to ensure the custom fit out was fit-for-purpose for the young professional or student rental target market. 

A full suite of in-room furniture, custom joinery, including bedheads and common area FFE installed to specifications and ready for operation.  The on-brand fit-out contributed to The Switch Living team’s vision to ‘redefine urban renting.’

Project Features

Working closely with the client’s Development Project Manager and internal Design Consultants, AJK Outfitters manufactured three styles of in-room, custom bedheads. 

The brief was to afford users more in-room functionality, and provide integrated tech and storage within joinery to complement the compact living environments.


  • Behind bedhead storage
  • Wireless charging integrated into the top of bedheads
  • Multiple charging options
  • Integrated LED reading lights
  • Multi-purpose headboard cushion
  • Retractable user tablet holder for charging, viewing and streaming.

“Renting is about to be revolutionised in Adelaide with a new communal-living apartment tower hitting the market catering for everything renters need – and then some.”

“We’ve created a new model of renting that is very suited to Gen Z and millennial customers. The rooms are private, but residents share other key aspects of the home including a kitchen, co-working spaces, outdoor terrace, sky lounge and a cinema — all included in the rent.” Craig Oliver, The Switch Living Co-Founder.
