Cowick Street, Exeter
Shoreline Custom SL007s.
The aim of the improvement was to create an area that would attract more shoppers and visitors to the historic centre of St Thomas. The council’s design team produced a colourful scheme using blue, green and red furniture which changed from east to west along Cowick Street, with blue closest to the River Exe, green to refer to the agricultural heritage of St Thomas and red to reflect the colour of the local natural stone in the hills to the west.
Benchmark was asked to design and produce curved seating based on our Shoreline range, with the addition of backrests and arms. The result was a series of curved seats that snaked around the existing trees, providing a practical, vibrant and cohesive feel to this historic area.
