Street + Garden, working closely with JMD Design, developed a bespoke furniture suite for a former heavy rail corridor in Newcastle that was inspired by the linear geometry and topology of the site.
Street + Garden developed a comprehensive suite of furniture that incorporated full custom designed elements and customised catalogue products. The designs and precast concrete hob wall elements were combined to create a seamless solution that integrates the furniture elements with the surrounding landscape.
Street + Garden was asked to develop a solution that interpreted the site’s former use. Being a rail corridor, the site is long and linear and the design of the furniture elements play on this through long linear bench seats and tables.
Market Street is set against the stunning display of heritage buildings on the main street of Newcastle and the adjacent Hunter River. This has created a new heart for the city that showcases all it has to offer. The furniture elements developed for JMD Design and installed in the landscape created a unique solution that enhanced the public space for all users.
