Guildhouse worked closely with WAX Design and the CPAE Council Project Team on an upgrade to areas of Prospect Road in Kilburn and Blair Athol.

Guildhouse was invited to deliver on the conceptual theme and framework for the integration of public art, leading an integrated artist engagement and commissioning process. Sam Songailo’s designs included the integration of light poles, paving designs and murals.

The project received a AILA 2023 SA Landscape Architecture Award for Urban Design.

Sam Songailo‘s work takes form in painting, installation, video, sound and sculpture. He is deeply influenced by digital technology and electronic music adopting algorithms and concepts from these disciplines that shape his approach to both physical and pictorial space. Often highly immersive and realised on a monumental scale, his work accentuates the compositional elements of line and space in a form that recalls both the modernist grid and digital networks.
