Kauwi Interpretive Centre / Woodhead

The interpretive centre is a state-of-the art facility with an interactive learning space which aims to inform and engage the community on desalination, sustainability, cultural heritage and water resource management in South Australia.
Woodhead worked closely with client SA Water and AdelaideAqua in producing the spectacular, yet sensitive insertion into the rolling coastal landscape south of Adelaide. The building connects an ancient landscape to 21st century water technology. The name ‘Kauwi’ can be translated as ‘water’, and comes from the local Kaurna Aboriginal language.
