Jensen PLUS formed part of Studio 9 Architects team engaged by the City of Port Adelaide Enfield to design and secure development approval for a new multi-purpose Indoor Recreation Facility at Lightsview. The facility comprises five multi-purpose court spaces, changing facilities, function spaces, cafe and commercial spaces fronting onto East Parkway, and activating the street frontage.

We worked collaboratively with the architects, traffic consultants and civil engineers to create a design that achieved the client’s objectives and made a positive contribution to this important corner on Hampstead Road.

The landscape design and creation of a streetscape statement to the major frontages supports the built form by integrating a distinctive planting palette with pavement materiality and bold colour selections. Street furniture was included to high activation areas to create meeting and cafe spaces. The amenity planting design surrounding the car parking maximises shading, creates vertical structure for the future and includes elements of WSUD for first flush rainwater treatment.
