Logan City Council in Queensland worked with the community to provide a new water park, which was installed adjacent to the existing playground, located at Wembley Road, Logan Gardens. The space was focused on community interaction and included multiple interconnected areas for play, socialising, and recreation.
The Landscape Architects, Urbis, and Logan City Council called for a response that allowed for a seating and delineation arrangement that is able to conform to significant variations in the ground plan layout. As such Street + Garden designed a new seating module that is capable of considerable articulation. The seating is visually playful incorporating bold colour that compliments the overall site vision.
Working with local indigenous artists, commissioned via Logan City Council, shade structures were developed incorporating the artists' pattern design. Aluminum sheet metal was folded creating structural ribs, so as to minimise any visual intrusion into the pattern created by the artists and to provide a clean appearance from beneath the structures. These support the shade structures canopy from above allowing for this appearance.
The overall project has been very warmly received by the local community and has created a focal point, a much-loved gathering space, and is a credit to the overall vision of the Landscape Architects.
The solution provided by Street + Garden was able to seamlessly integrate with the landscape design, including being able to easily adapt to straight, curved, and angled changes in direction of the adjacent pathways and grassed areas.
