John Curtin Centre Seating
The London Plane trees that have provided welcome greenery at Curtin's Bentley campus have also meant that the grass beneath their shade has struggled to grow. In a bid to counteract this, we wanted to improve the aesthetics of the landscaping at the John Curtin Centre area and encourage use of the space by students and staff.
We engaged landscape architects who could design, develop and create an environment that people would want to use.
An installation of two attractive wooden benches took place at The Forum. These curved in and around trees with a shade-tolerant landscape planted behind. The Alcoa Court has permeable paving and garden beds beneath trees, with Kink furniture for students, staff and visitors to use.
