Annandale Village Shops NSW, Australia (2011)

Leichhardt City Council developed plans for the improvement of Annandale village shops, located on Johnston and Booth Streets. As part of funding allocated to original street art, then Mayor Jamie Parker proposed a water fountain artwork. Artist Sarah Muggeridge was awarded the $15,000 commission to create a mosaic art piece from the Street Furniture Australia Arqua Station. The result is a colourful, intricate design that brightens the streetscape and reflects the spirit of the local community.

Camberwell Laneways

Wave benches, designed by Oculus, breathe new life into Camberwell Laneways. When the Boroondara Council looked at the dull, service-only laneways in the Melbourne suburb of Camberwell, it saw an opportunity to reflect the character of a community.
