Alexandra Headlands - Sunshine Coast QLD
Sunshine Coast Regional Council
Surya Graf, 2007
While having an obvious function, the brief for this project was to design a sculptural seating element along the Alexandra Headland board-walk that would be a focal point while also harmoniously fitting into the foreshore landscape.
The design took direct inspiration from its coastal location, reflecting many aspects of this environment and lifestyle. The overall form, the shaping details in the timber and the curved metal framework are all references to aspects of the ocean. The form also allows for individual and communal use of the seat.
Relying on CAD technology to produce a quality product in a quick and cost effective manner, the design uses hardwood timber and metal components, which are durable and easy to maintain.
All necessary site analysis, product feasibility studies, prototyping and technical documentation were also undertaken by Street & Garden studio during the various design and manufacturing phases of the project.
