In an ongoing attempt to change the face of Bree St, Clarkes Bar and Dining Room wanted a permanent addition to their outdoor seating. Used in conjunction with the Parklet, completed in 2011, it creates the feeling of an outdoor room on the sidewalk and adds much needed seating to the busy bar and eatery.
The benches were made using Eucalyptus slabs, which were salvaged after years of sitting outside in the elements. After removing the top layers there was a fine pattern of cracking, from drying too fast in the sun. Left in place these fine cracks make the benches look like they’ve always been there.
Made from Eucalyptus, with steel fixings.
Dimensions: 3000 x 450 x 450mm
