Context

The ancient catalpa tree in Heerlen has been surrounded by a Rough & Ready circular bench for many years. However, due to root growth and expanding tree size, the bench around the tree needed to be replaced.

This prompted the municipality to rethink the layout of the square and give it a fresh look.

Products supplied

The city opted for an integral design using various Streetlife custom products centred on galvanised steel and wood.

Galvanised steel has been used for the borders of the triangular isles, the custom-made tree grid and the supports of the circular bench as well as for the bollards.

While the support frame ensures that the tree does not fall over, the integrated Solid swing adds a playful touch to the overall look.
