Blyth Seat & Bench
The public realm between three major buildings offered the opportunity of creating significant new public spaces, whilst also linking into the surrounding street network.
High quality paving was used throughout, extensive new street tree planting provided and soft landscape areas created, with Furnitubes’ Blyth concrete seating used throughout to allow residents, workers and visitors to sit and enjoy their new surroundings. Over 40 benches were supplied in total – all in a standard grey mix and fitted with stainless steel armrests that serve not only to assist people in using the seats, but also to prevent them from being slept on and as deterrents to skateboarders who may otherwise use the benches as grinding edges.
