Students enjoy stylish functional new recreation area
Urban Fountains and Furniture were approached by designer, Jill Owen-Catt from Bold Architecture to assist with the design and manufacture of custom seating and picnic tables for St Ursulas College, Yeppoon.
Jill had worked with Urban on previous projects and knew that they would be the best company to offer realistic design and fabrication input, while still respecting her original design concepts and vision for the project.
The design brief was for a very strong, durable, yet stylish suite of picnic tables and chairs with minimalist footing design. Seating was required on all 4 sides, to be mounted in-ground on single strut legs and with special consideration given to dismantling for ease of shipping and installation.
Urban worked closely with Jill offering up to 4 different table/seating styles that met the brief. After close consultation between the client, architect and Urban, with some minor design tweaks required here and there to ensure that the client received exactly what they wanted, the final design was realised.
The table frame and seating were manufactured from robust RHS and high quality Pacific Jarrah was chosen for the hardwood component. All frame work was hot dipped galvanised and the timber was treated with high quality penetrative oil.
The result is a stunning stylish minimalist picnic table and seating combination that is low maintenance, functional and very durable that will be enjoyed by the students for many years to come
