Brewery Quarter, Cheltenham
Curved street furniture for £30m Brewery Quarter makeover
The Brewery Quarter is set to become Cheltenham’s premier retail and leisure destination, where customers can shop, dine, stay and play!
NFU Mutual, the owner of the Brewery Quarter, has just completed a £30m makeover of the area. The new development creates a high profile retail corridor which links many of the restaurants and shops.
With a broad walkway we were asked to create a number of S shaped benches to bring some variation to the space. The Centreline CL007 benches were perfect for this scenario as their organic, flowing design brings some visual interest to the relatively linear area.
Working with the client we curved the tubes to a bespoke radius and length. With two width options being available (600mm or 450mm) they opted for the wider, thus allowing shoppers to access seating from both sides.
Being an extremely busy area, a low maintenance and robust material was a must – 316 stainless steel was the simple choice. This material is perfect for high footfall area as stainless steel requires little to no maintenance, is often self cleaning, will outlast timber counterparts and is 100% recyclable.
