An upgrade of Constitution Avenue, from Capital Hill through to Mount Pleasant Nature Reserve, features a custom suite of furniture with touches of brass. Hill Thalis Architecture and Urban Projects and Jane Irwin Landscape Architecture, with Street Furniture Australia, SMEC (urban strategy) and Able Landscaping, contributed to the transformation. “Like Paris’ Champs-Elysses or Washington’s Pennsylvania Avenue, Constitution Avenue’s successful upgrade will establish it as one of the memorable urban boulevards and vistas of the world,” says Hill Thalis. “The resolution of its legible structure through fine, strong materials and detailing in the public domain will lend the Avenue an appropriate civic decorum, while making space for all the transit needs of a 21st century city.” The ACT Government received a $42 million federal grant for the 2.5 kilometre upgrade to celebrate the Centenary of Canberra.

Inspired by European industrial style furniture, the City of Parramatta has collaborated with Street Furniture Australia to bring a custom suite to a refreshed parkland. As population density increases in Epping in Sydney’s north-west, Boronia Park required a design re-think in line with its Master Plan and new urban character, says Erin Hrouda, Open Space Officer with the Council. The popular 4.9 hectare park received a facelift and upgraded facilities through a multi-million dollar joint NSW State Government funded program. The update included a new circuit path and seating, additional playground equipment and soft-fall, picnic shelters and tables, barbecues, improved access and lighting. Hrouda worked with Street Furniture Australia to create a site-specific range of furniture for the park. “The brief called for a unique furniture range, more urban in nature than what had previously been installed in the park, …
The Mildura Water Play Park revitalises parkland along the Murray River, inviting families to relax and play in a prime riverfront setting. Mildura Rural City Council commissioned the project to revive a 10 kilometre stretch of public park as part of an $18.3 million upgrade of the river precinct.

The firm designed a 40 metre long artificial stream, laid out like a river delta …
