Challenge

Artform Urban Furniture was appointed by Lendlease and Gillespies to provide a number of waste / recycling units and a water fountain to a new public green space in the centre of Elephant and Castle.

Solution

The Box litter bin has a versatile and highly adaptable design that features a variety of finishes to complement a range of external spaces. After receiving a suite of options from the company's sales team, the client opted for a hardwood-clad door option with powder-coated steel frame. The combination of materials sits naturally within the new green space. The bins come complete with an anti-graffiti coating and bespoke-designed designation plate to the front and bespoke stubber plate to the top of general waste bins.

The Fuente fountains provide fresh drinking water; an environmentally-friendly option for members of the public to fill up their water bottles and save on plastic waste.

About Elephant and Castle

Elephant and Castle is a central London neighbourhood that has a long and fascinating history dating back as long as the reign of the roman empire. In recent years, £4bn of public and private money has been invested into the area in a major regeneration project. Thousands of new homes are being built and the town centre is being revitalised with new shops, offices, restaurants and the largest new green space in London in 70 years.

Elephant Park is a spectacular 2-acre green oasis at the heart of the ground-breaking project - featuring a huge array of plant species, play areas, seating spaces, water features and the aim to be the UK’s first climate positive development when completed in 2025.
