MARINE WALK, ROKER
hardwood, stainless steel
for public spaces
Sunderland City Council initiated the Marine Walk Masterplan in order to revitalise the seafront of Roker. Having already supplied some Scroll seats and benches to the project we were asked to design and produce some picnic tables and benches for use along the newly developed promenade. The units featured a heavy duty section of FSC® hardwood slats with a stainless steel frame and tubular bases. As part of the design brief, the units were also supplied with spaces for wheelchair users. The units were sub-surface fixed to maintain the simplicity and beauty of the setting. The materials used were selected to ensure minimal maintenance even in the potentially harsh coastal environment.
