Curved Type 2 bench; Type 4 wall seat; Box seats
Woodscape created striking feature seating to enable the utilisation of a previously unused public space in a renovated Bristol shopping centre complex.
The Abbeywood Shopping Park renovation scheme in Bristol included the creation of a variety of specialist hardwood furniture in order to utilise the unused public space in front of shops such as ASDA and Next so that the public could relax and enjoy their surroundings.
Woodscape worked with Macgregor Smith Landscape Architects to realise a design for their street furniture requirements within the scheme.
A range of specialist Naturally Very Durable Hardwood street furniture was created to bring the retail park’s previously unutilised space to life.
Designed and manufactured in Woodscape’s UK workshops in Blackburn, a large Type 2 curved bench was produced for the space.
A Type 4 wall seat with an organic curve stretching to a 5.61m radius connected to a large planter was designed to allow groups of shoppers to sit together and socialise under an outdoor canopy.
Additionally, bespoke rectangular modular Box seats, which are open at either side, added a fun and flexible feature to the paved area.
