Bespoke version of Soca bench
Cambridge North Station serves over 3000 passengers a day and has created a new gateway to Cambridge and its northern edges.
The new station is a strikingly designed space and it was important to select stylish and functional street furniture for its plaza.
Factory Furniture supplied several bespoke versions of its Soca bench to create plaza seating for customers. These were manufactured from FSC Cumaru, mounted onto concrete plinths, and arranged in series to prevent vehicle access to the station area. The attractive and functional seating is thus able to function as hostile vehicle mitigation at the station.
