Street Furniture – Winnipeg, Canada

This innovative street furniture transitions into a slatted wall to screen a private dining area from the public sidewalk. A base of flat slats rests on a rectangular steel frame. The uprights run between these varying the depth of the bench at the base.

This simple table set in the corner of a yard in front of a fairly simple two-story hipped roof house, commands the space around it. This is due to placement in a corner, as well as due to the connection with the main walk and staircase immediately behind it. The use of a finely crushed stone as a paving material gives the space the table sets on a more architectural feel.
