Parklet Gallery

Foods for Life Parklet

Location: 58A Gawler Place
Designer: Cary Duffield, Troppo Architects
Completed: March 2013

The Foods for Life parklet is a unique space that responds to the needs of the Gawler Place location. Its semi-enclosed space and bench seating edged by planter boxes provides an ideal platform for viewing street activity, creating a small oasis in a fast moving pedestrian environment.

The Foods for Life parklet received an award at the 2013 Planning Institute of Australia (SA) Awards for Planning Excellence and was a national finalist in the 2014 Property Council Innovation and Excellence Awards.

Case Study: Foods for Life Parklet


Cibo Espresso Parklet - Waymouth Street

Location: 32-34 Waymouth Street
Designer: David Fazzalari, Divine Space
Completed: December 2013

The distinctive Cibo Espresso parklet located in Waymouth Street was the second installed under City of Adelaide’s Parklet Program. The new public space features fixed bench seats, planter boxes, timber decking and pressed metal panels that reflect its heritage streetscape location.


Tivoli Hotel Parklet

Location: 265 Pirie Street
Designer: John Diekman Architects
Completed: December 2013

The parklet installed outside the Tivoli Hotel reconfigures three former on-street parking spaces. Designed by John Diekman Architects and consisting of hardwood decking, fixed benches and large planters, the parklet offers a good sized public space in an area otherwise lacking public seating.


Historian Hotel Parklet

Location: 18 Coromandel Place
Designer: Daniel Leonard, LifeStyle Structures
Completed: January 2014

The Historian Hotel hosted the original trial parklet created by City of Adelaide under ‘Splash Adelaide’ over the summer of 2012/12. Its success led to further exploration of the concept by Council via the Pilot Parklet Program and the hotel’s decision to create a more permanent parklet at this site.


Cibo Espresso Parklet - Pirie Street

Location: 97 Pirie Street
Designer: David Fazzalari, Divine Space
Completed: April 2014

The second parklet created by Cibo Espresso re-imagined two parking spaces in Pirie Street. The parklet, which features a number of red fixed benches and large planter boxes, offers the opportunity to step off a busy pedestrian link and an ideal spot from which to view street life.
