2023 Good Cause Giveaway goes to Swanbury Penglase charity project

Street Furniture Australia has donated $45k of Linea show-products to Baptist Care SA’s WestCare Centre, a project nominated by Swanbury Penglase, as part of the Good Cause Giveaway for the 2023 Festival of Landscape Architecture: UN/EARTH.

Now in its third year, the 2023 Good Cause Giveaway received six fantastic entries from landscape architects and Councils for local Adelaide projects, with the winner selected by the UN/EARTH Festival Creative Directorate.

The jury said: “The Festival creative directors found awarding this year’s Street Furniture Australia’s (extremely generous) Good Cause Giveaway a difficult task as all of the entries were very worthy.”

“We were particularly conscious of the incredible work that the team of volunteers at Baptist Care SA’s WestCare Centre in Adelaide do for those in our community experiencing homelessness, having worked and lived in the precinct for many years. Baptist Care SA’s WestCare Centre is a safe space that welcomes those facing complex issues such as homelessness, domestic violence, social isolation, probation and parole, emergency food relief and health.

“We agreed that the suite of Linea Seats, Benches, Curved Benches and Cubes in Sensation Orange and Spotted Gum would significantly enhance the courtyard spaces and Millers Court streetscape and add to the Centre’s activities. The seats will contribute to a lively and inviting place that encourages social interaction and connection for those most in need.

“The creative directors would like to sincerely thank all those involved including Street Furniture Australia, Swanbury Penglase and Baptist Care SA’s WestCare Centre.”

Baptist Care SA CEO, Shane Austin, says they are grateful for the donation.

“Almost 200 people a day visit Baptist Care SA’s WestCare Centre. This generous donation will help to enhance connection between members of our community and conversations that can lead to positive outcomes.”

Why choose the original Linea over reproductions?

Successful products are often followed by copycats. Over the past year we have become aware of an increase in reproductions of the Linea range attempting to create a similar aesthetic at a lower price. This can compromise the overall durability and environmental credentials of projects being delivered, affect ongoing maintenance requirements, and in some instances pose a risk of injury to the public. The design of Linea is deceptively simple while delivering exceptional attention to detail. Details matter not only for beauty, but also for providing durability, and safety, that will last decades. Linea strictly uses the highest quality and sustainable materials, has passed rigorous strength tests, and is designed for longevity, with easily replaceable parts. The product range is the result of hundreds of hours of research and development …

Earthy Pastels: now with boosted UV resistance

You can now specify Street Furniture Australia’s popular Earthy Pastels colour range with the assurance of brilliant colour for years to come. That’s because the UV resistance currently applied to the Durabright Range has been added to Earthy Pastels as standard. The Earthy Pastels range was introduced in July 2022 to meet popular demand for contemporary muted hues. As Earthy Pastels were increasingly specified across a wide range of landscape design projects, it was important to ensure the full range of colours would retain their brilliance in the harsh Australian climate. The Earthy Pastels range includes eight colours inspired by the Australian landscape. Muted shades in Mustard, Dusty Pink and Pale Eucalypt green are inspired by the desert. The blue ocean and sky are represented by the hues Horizon Blue …
