Percher-style and long satellite hardwood seating
To provide bespoke street furniture to an award-winning conservation project, at New Road in Brighton, adjacent to the Theatre Royal Pavilion, providing theatre goers and shoppers with a place to rest, whilst reflecting the artistic nature of the area.
Woodscape designed a range of percher-style and long satellite seating, working in conjunction with artists, Brighton & Hove Council as well as a team of architects and engineers. The seating features long slats as well as a spectacular array of small, coloured inset lights that are computer managed to complement the mood of the season or play being staged at the theatre.
Since its opening the street has become well-used and a centrepiece of the city’s Cultural Quarter. It has received numerous awards including the Civic Trust Award in 2009.
