Sometimes the simplest of structures and hard landscaping elements can become used as the basis of play and social interaction.

'Rotating Wind Shelter'
Bexhill's lobster boats and the sculpture of alexander calder inspired these rotating windshelters. They will be built by local boat builders, working closely with the architect, using their craft to bring to the promenade four separately shaped, sculptural, timber wind-screens which rotate into the wind to give shelter.
'Cabinets of Curiosity'
All major cities have their artistic cultural centres, or vicinities where art galleries gather. These civic places where art is shown to the public has a more robust heritage that many are unaware of. The first shows of art were in markets- where the curator of the time would show his gems of art, puppets, theatre, bearded ladies on various types of wheeled platforms, stages or cabinets. It was only when the cabinet was introduced as a piece of furniture inside, that the gallery as we know it was born.
Following in the romantic vein of the present owner’s Great Grandma a loveseat/arbour was proposed as a feature to link disparate elements.
