Custom seats designed by Street Furniture Australia fix onto raised garden beds at the Bupa Aged Care Facility in Clemton Park. The facility offers 144 beds, with courtyards to allow green fingers of landscape to wrap around the wings on the eastern side, and on the west a courtyard creates a tranquil garden.

A comfortable upright profile and armrests assist with sitting and standing, meeting DDA requirements. Standard slats make for simple ongoing maintenance and replacement parts. The seats are also designed with ease of installation in mind, in case they need to be removed at a future date.
