SA Water: Kauwi Interpretive Centre


The Kauwi Interpretive Centre provides a venue where community groups, students and industry experts can learn more about desalination, water and the cultural history of the local Kaurna people.

Named after the Kaurna word for water, the centre reflects the importance of water to all life. The centre features interpretive signage, an open gallery with static and digital displays, artefacts found on the site and a balcony with views of the ADP and surrounding landscape. You can also walk through the Bushtukka Garden which features local plants historically used by the Kaurna people.

Visitors to the centre will be able to learn about:

The science and technology of desalination.
Climate and sustainability challenges in South Australia and throughout the world.
Water issues unique to our state and how we solve them.
The Kaurna Aboriginal culture and the importance of water in a cultural context.

A collaborative team effort with WDM Advertising at the helm, Arketype provided structural design and production for all built form and interpretive display.

Full digital graphic wrapped and 2 pac clear coated display pods were a spectacular finish!

It is a landmark project for Arketype and it was great to work with a supportive and talented team:

WDM Advertising – Project lead & graphic design
Lightbulb Digital – Interactive media development
Monkey Stack – Interactive game development (WOW!)
Lush Logic – copy writing
