Bespoke concrete linear benches
Bespoke linear concrete benches were installed as part of the Here East Project during the regeneration of the Olympic Village in Stratford, London.
Two versions of linear benches were supplied for the project:
The S1 linear bench consists of singular bench with a graphic imprint with an exposed polished finish. The design architect wanted to reintroduce a construction type theme into the area as this region prior to the Olympics was rich with construction activity mainly supplying construction components.
The graphic imprint was chosen by the architect and replicated a circuit board and when each bench was lined together each line had to match perfect. Cassidy Brothers worked in hand with the client Willerby and the architect in choosing the correct concrete matrix colour, aggregate type, degree of exposure and finally the polishing texture.
The S3 linear bench consisted of 200m of various benches surrounding five green areas next to the canal. The green areas are adjacent to a number of shop fronts as well as offices.
Cassidy Bros designed an adjustable mould to accommodate the various changing sizes, along with a universal angle mould used for the sloping sides.
