Pop-up project at Sydney beachside

Galleria Seat

The Park to Pacific project is a movement that imagines Clovelly Road, from Centennial Park to Clovelly Beach, as a safer, greener, more sustainable street. It has evolved out of the Clovelly Road Better Block project, an annual community event that celebrates the ways in which a neighbourhood can be dramatically improved through small changes, such as public art, green spaces, kids’ activities and new seating.

On Sunday, 19 October, Street Furniture Australia was invited by organiser Ari Andersen to participate in this year’s event by providing a selection of pop-up seats and tables. Whether used for curbside dining, conversation or just a place to rest, the temporary furniture created new ways for locals to experience Clovelly Road.

In the spirit of the day, the new seats provided a place to ponder a better way of living.

Changing 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. What it ended up with had even greater potential: a blueprint for laneways that could revitalise the wider municipality. An initial trial took place in Market Lane, a thoroughfare leading from Burke Road to a carpark, which hosts the Camberwell Fresh Food Market from Tuesday to Saturday each week. “It started as a thoroughfare where traders and the Rotary Club wanted to do something to liven it up and make it more useful “says Boroondara Council Senior Landscape Architect Katie Williams. “There is a lack of public seating in the area, so …
