Context

Street+Garden were engaged by Terras Landscape Architects to design custom backed platform benches with integrated lighting, picnic settings and hob-mounted benches to greatly increase public amenity along the Newcastle Waterfront in the Honeysuckle Park foreshore redevelopment

Featuring neutral colours and a custom White Honeysuckle Coastal Banksia laser cut pattern throughout the platforms and picnic settings to compliment the setting while also requiring durable finishes to survive the harsh elements along the waterfront was an interesting challenge to overcome

Opportunities

The opportunity to provide integrated lighting in the platform benches along the waterfront really contributes to activating the space in the early hours of the morning and evening when the park is at its most breathtaking is one of the most rewarding aspects of this project.
