St George plc
Fulham Reach, a prestigious new development of residential apartments on the River Thames, was a project which involved collaboration with leading property developer St George plc, Ardmore Construction and Osel Architects.
Benchmark was asked to produce a curved version of its standard Norfolk bench to suit a large circular terraced garden. This was a technically challenging proposal that required using air-dried FSC oak and steam bending to achieve the curved designs.
Three 2.5 metre long bespoke benches were made. Each bench has four cast aluminium leg frames as formers for the curved oak seats and backrests. The benches were anchored to the Yorkstone slabs using the Wales & Wales stainless steel ground fixing rod system.
Fulham Reach has a contemporary outdoor seating area for residents and visitors to enjoy and relax in.
