A Meeting Place at the River
The completion of Holland Street represents the culmination of 4 years of collaboration between JPE and the City of West Torrens in revitalising the Thebarton area.
The public realm and streetscape is now defined as a key Meeting Place, where Holland Street meets the River Torrens. A significant stormwater harvest system below the plaza now provides the majority of irrigation requirements to the space and streetscape beyond.
The underpinning design philosophy was to rejuvenate Thebarton, inject life whilst protecting the gritty character unique to the precinct. Integrated WSUD initiatives, artworks and a street focused on cycle and pedestrian movement, has meant a design approach new to not only the precinct but also Council.
