The Market to Riverbank Link, Adelaide, SA
Renewal SA is a joint venture between the City of Adelaide and the South Australian State Government to upgrade the city’s key streets. The Market to Riverbank Link project aims to create an exciting and vibrant connection between the Adelaide Central Market and Adelaide Riverbank.
Project Design Brief

The shapes of the amethyst geode mineral deposits local to the region inspired the custom grate design.
