St Ives Showground NSW, Australia (2018)

Ku-ring-gai Council commissioned tailored Frame Bin Enclosures for the St Ives Showground featuring a special laser cut horse design, to honour the equestrian community who have used the site as far back as the 1920s.

“Show and horse events were held regularly from 1926 until the Second World War, when it was occupied by the Australian Defence Forces,” says Nick Zajko, Landscape Architect with Ku-ring-gai Council.

“The Princess Anne Equestrian Arena in the Showgrounds is used today as an equestrian facility for training and competition days with show-jumping, sporting, dressage and horsemanship events.

“The site holds the annual Northern Suburbs Agricultural and Horticultural Society Show, which commenced in 1975. The society also stages Twilight, Winter and Spring Horse Shows at the Showground across the year.”

Each of the 10 tailored Enclosures features an angled roof, laser cut door and frame powder coated in Dark Bronze with scratch-resistant Textura coating.

The horse graphic was designed inhouse by Ku-ring-gai Council.

“The value of having custom pieces made is it allows a site’s identity or genius loci to show through within its infrastructure. This site is located in a rustic bushland setting and we wanted the bin frames to reflect this,” says Zajko.

“The rusty corten face panel picks up on the laterite soil, tree sap and browning eucalyptus leaf colours on site.

“The mini orb side panelling celebrates the historic building materials found on site, and the powder coated bronze frame subtly ties all these elements together and allows the bins to harmonise with the surrounding site context.”

Frame Bin Enclosures are now easy to customise with your own artwork, thanks to handy templates and a range of options from powder coating to vinyl stickers, as seen in our Litter Solutions Handbook.

Mildura Water Play 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. Landscape architects Tract Consultants, with contractors King Construction Group, transformed the space into a local hotspot that attracted 1000 visitors each weekend in its first summer. “Given the hot climate of Mildura a waterplay facility was identified as an activity; to use that as part of the wider masterplan would help encourage people back to the park and the river,” says Nigel Parker, associate landscape architect with Tract. The firm designed a 40 metre long artificial stream, laid out like a river delta …

All-Abilities Playground, Bellerive Beach

Perched on the ocean with Mt Wellington as a backdrop, the All-Abilities Playground at Bellerive Beach Park is a fun space designed for kids to test their limits, watchful parents to relax, and groups to celebrate. Community consultation with accessibility groups and local schools undertaken by the Council provided valuable insights, says Design Officer and Landscape Architect Sally Taylor. “Across all the groups and ages consulted with there was a running theme of children wanting to go bigger, faster, higher, which supported Council’s goal of providing ‘risky play’ experiences,” she tells StreetChat. “Children were very clued into the fact that if their parents or carers were comfortable and relaxed at the park then they got to stay and play for longer. This resulted in lots of seats and tables, generous …

Sydney Opera House

Below the iconic sails of the Sydney Opera House, around the forecourt and above the harbour, Monsoon Bin Enclosures keep litter neat and tidy under sails of their own. Tens of thousands of people approach the Opera House every day. In a year, more than eight million people visit. This includes those attending a concert, celebrating with a meal, or just appreciating the national landmark from the ground. At the peak of virtual reality game Pokémon Go the forecourt was packed with gamers sitting on every available bench and step. The venue serves 2.5 million food and beverage customers a year alone, with plenty of people bringing their own food for picnics with waterfront views. Runners and strollers descend the stairs from the Royal Botanic Garden, or take a quick circuit of the boardwalk around …
