Quirky colourful street furniture has popped up on the corner of Market Street and Cantonment Street in the Fremantle CBD.

I am not sure if this was done by the City of Fremanle or Silverleaf Investments as part of the Artwell Arcade beautification.

CREATIVE PUBLIC FURNITURE IDEA FOR FREO

How cool would this kind of street furniture be for Fremantle’s beaches or for Notre Dame University. Seating and shade all in one unit.

I’d love to see something like this on the grass in Phillimore Street where many students gather in front of the NDA buildings there, and Bathers Beach and South Beach could do with something creative as well.

PUBLIC REALM AT FREO’S NEW KINGS SQUARE

 

Kings Square

Kings Square 2

 

As I reported earlier this week Fremantle Council  on Wednesday approved concept plans to upgrade public spaces in Freo’s historic Kings Square. Here some more details.

The key components of the $8 million upgrades which form part of the broader renewal of the Kings Square precinct include:

• more shaded areas, with a 5% increase in tree canopy
• over 2,300sqm of public gardens and grassed areas
• a new outdoor interactive children’s play space with artistic light and sound elements
• a designated church yard and urban garden area
• new paving and street furniture extending further out to the edges of the square
• a greater priority on pedestrians but with the retention of service vehicle access, universally accessible parking and vehicle drop-off zones
• flexible outdoor spaces for events
• wider footpaths to encourage alfresco dining
• historical interpretation including glass floor viewing windows to interpret the former church and other material found in recent archaeological excavations
• enhanced lighting and CCTV coverage.
