Project details:
Situated in the heart of Croydon, Ruskin Square is a 2 million sq ft development designed to create a high-quality environment in which to work, relax and live, ultimately providing 625 new residential units. Eleven major new buildings are being constructed, interlinked with expansive new public realm provision, with the focal point being the creation of this exciting new space designed by muf architecture / art. Encircled by a ring of twelve specimen Pin Oak trees set in planting beds interspersed with sculptures, gateways and stepping stones lead to the central open space that is paved with recycled jarrah timber. Furnitubes’ designers worked closely with muf architects in the development of a wide range of seating forms, providing three-dimensional models and full-scale prototypes for consideration en route to the final designs. Variations include plain seats and benches, reduced-scale seating for children, kissing seats and leaning platforms, many of which utilise the post and rails around the perimeter planting beds for the mounting of backrests, resulting in a very unique and site-specific design solution for the Ruskin Square scheme.
