Street + Garden worked together with Anembo Consultants to deliver a specialised custom suite of furniture and structures for Pelican Waters Marina, Caloundra QLD. Members of the Pelican Waters master planned community can now enjoy this all-ages, all-abilities park furnished with custom seating, picnic table and bar settings and shelters. These were complemented by other urban elements including custom feature signage and illuminated bollards.
The coastal location of the project called for premium finishes with high durability and low maintenance. Street + Garden was able to design and deliver a solution to meet these requirements with all products being manufactured locally. All furniture is compliant with the Sunshine Coast Open Space Landscape Infrastructure Manual (LIM), which is an award-winning procurement guideline with a focus on equal access and durability.
The overarching coastal theme of the design is evident in the forms of the shelter, taking cues from a typical ‘beach day shelter’ that helps to frame the view across the park and surrounding canals. The refined shapes are explored in various forms and repeated throughout the full suite of furniture and shelters. This was done intentionally to create a unique and interesting public space that visually ‘shifts’ in a dynamic way as the users engage with and move through the park. Due to the overwhelming success of the design Street + Garden are delivering future stages for this project.
