Glenthorne National Park -Ityamaiitpinna Yarta Visitor Hub | Phillips/Pilkington Architects + T.C.L

The Glenthorne National Park – Ityamaiitpinna Yarta Visitor Hub is located within Adelaide’s newly created National Park celebrating First Nations culture and a State Heritage Place, in a rehabilitated natural environment providing opportunities for recreation and connection to country in suburban Adelaide. A series of picnic shelters and public amenities have been developed around the central open space of Glenthorne Green, the Watercourse and the Nature Playground.

The Visitor Hub was developed as a collaboration with Landscape Architects T.C.L, with the key involvement of First Nations artist Karl Winda Telfer, senior cultural custodian for his clan countries which include the Adelaide Plains Mullawirra (dry forest country) and Pangkarra Kaurna Meyunna (people).

Material choices promote, environmental performance, durability and a sense of place responding to the materiality of the many historic buildings on site and connecting to country.
