Mollymook is a picturesque coastal beachside location in Southern NSW. Street + Garden’s client wanted a design solution that was immediately recognisable and created a fun place for families to safely enjoy. There is plenty of space close to the beach for picnic shelters that house picnic settings, along with park bench seating that offers places to rest and enjoy the views.
This beachside location presented the usual challenges that are part of these corrosive environments, so Street + Garden needed to select appropriate materials that can withstand prolonged exposure in these conditions. In this instance, galvanised steel with additional zinc-rich primers applied prior to a finished colour was chosen.
Due to a lot of sand being moved around the space from the ocean, the designs for the seats considered ease of cleaning and maintenance. the backrests include a unique visual detail that mimic the lines in the sand when the tide retreats, in keeping with the beach theme of the space. This same detail was applied to the waste receptacles and picnic settings.
A particular opportunity to include back-to-back seating where both sides and ends become comfortable resting places was able to be incorporated into these designs.
