Location: Adelaide Botanical Gardens - North Terrace Adelaide SA

A new glasshouse was required to replace the dilapidated Victoria House, in a very sensitive location in the centre of Adelaide’s Botanic Gardens. The heritage-listed 1867 Lily Pond in the Victoria House had to be preserved and the design was not to detract from the adjacent heritage-listed buildings.  Glass was chosen as the main structural material as the designers wanted a solution that would not detract from the surrounding heritage buildings, but that would still provide a modern, minimalist and elegant centrepiece for the Gardens’ future.
