Mark Street Gardens, Hackney, London

London Borough of Hackney

Project details:
Mark Street Gardens is a small, tranquil green space close to the busy Great Eastern Street in London's popular Shoreditch area. Created as recently as the 1980s following clearance of the Langbourne Buildings, the gardens are one of Hackney's youngest parks, although it has a historic setting alongside the former St. Michael's Church. Recent improvement works coincide with the first Green Flag Award application for the gardens. A circular arrangement of new seating set around an existing memorial stone is a central feature to the new works.

Furnitubes' designers were set the challenge of devising a 3-part seating arrangement that would fit between existing lines of granite setts and alongside retained planting. The geometrical outcome was two dual segment benches and a single 3-segment assembly, all based around a common module size. The benches combine galvanised steel plates ends and subframe, which sit well within this urban environment, and oiled iroko hardwood slats. Armrests have been carefully positioned to allow maximum usage of the seating area but also to deter rough sleeping which has been an issue at the gardens in the past. 

We are very pleased with the overall arrangement and detail of the seating and wish Hackney well in their upcoming Green Flag application for Mark Street Gardens.
