''What I love about Bowden is the sense of community''
The production of household goods was taken out of private homes and away from individual crafting, and into the commercial domain of machinery and mass production. Bowden’s first settlers had a vision for their new community – to contribute to the fabric of the State by mass creating the goods and chattels of a modern life. By 1900, the village hosted a Candle Works, Steam Flour Mill, Clay and Brickworks, Gas Works, Tannery and Boot Factory, Bottle Company and Glass Works, and Clipsal Industries. The factories, some of which still stand today, were stark, pragmatic and distinctive - punching geometrically into the skyline.
The site of the original Gasworks and Clipsal Industries is now home to a vibrant and growing community with a new spirit – connected by the rich character and personality of its colourful history, and the drive to live creatively. Bowden has left behind its industrial past to find a new artisanal sensibility re-emerging in its wake – a return to the crafters, designers, artisans, re-cyclers, up-cyclers and hand-makers of pre-industry.

'In some ways we're reflecting on the past of Bowden through the building - so things well done, well thought out, inventive, clever. Simple, but beautiful. '
- Morry Canala, Development Manager, Hindmarsh
'We’re really excited to officially launch The Artisan and build another high quality apartment project in Bowden, which continues to shape as a fantastic place to live on the fringe of the Adelaide CBD.'
