Projects details:
Chobham Manor is one of five new neighbourhoods being built at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Straford, east London. Sited close to Lea Valley Velopark - formerly known as the Olympic Velodrome, where Chris Hoy, Victoria Pendleton and many other Team GB cyclists triumphed at London 2012 - new streets have been named using cycling terminology, including Peloton Avenue and Keirin Road. Over the next 20 years nearly 7,000 new homes will be constructed in the area, together with nurseries, health centres and multi-purpose community spaces, alongside world-class sporting venues, all located within an attractive parkland setting. Chobham Manor Phase 1 contains 1500 square metres of publicly accessible open space, including a neighbourhood play area for young children. Bounded by a mixture of garden-style walling and low level steel railings, together with extensive new perimeter tree planting, the central space is surfaced with a synthetic turf to provide an all-year-round play facility. The chosen seating for the scheme was Furnitubes’ municipal-styled Newstead range. Project architects MUF Architecture / Art did though put their own unique twist on the designs, including some exceptionally high backrests that straddle the boundary fence to provide low level child-friendly seating on the play area side. On the street, the seating is more conventional, generally arranged in linear groups to encourage social interaction and placed to take advantage of attractive vistas across the development.
