Victoria Square Master Plan, Adelaide, South Australia
Client: City of Adelaide
DesignFlow were responsible for ensuring WSUD was integrated within the major redevelopment of Adelaide's premier Square in the heart of the city. Stormwater treatment and harvesting to irrigate the Square and provide for water features is combined with areas of the Square dedicated to community involvement include vegetable gardens, worm farms and educational initiatives associated with SA Water's discovery centre.
Stormwater treatment and harvesting takes advantage of heart of the Square being set down compared to the perimeter roads for acoustic purposes, thus enabling stormwater from existing drains to be diverted into a combination of wetlands and biofilters for treatment and harvesting.
