Award-winning West End design firm Street and Garden
has sponsored the Pinktober light ups for breast cancer awareness in Hobart last month.
The firm won the Gold Design award at the Australian Good Design awards
in May for its work in Tasmania at Franklin Square and Morrison Street. Franklin Square is one of the sites which they lit up pink for breast cancer awareness, along with other major city landmarks including the Cardinal Lights, Kennedy Lane, the Railway Roundabout and Elizabeth Mall. Throughout October, Street and Garden wanted to shine a spotlight on breast cancer and the valuable research that the National Breast Cancer Foundation funds.Since the Tasmanian award, Street and Garden have been more recently contracted for the furniture design work for Urbis for the Rockhampton Riverside Precinct. In February 2015, the eye of Cyclone Marcia passed directly over Rockhampton, bringing with it winds of more than 150 kilometres per hour and widespread destruction. In the aftermath, the Rockhampton Riverside Precinct project was initiated by the Rockhampton Regional Council to provide much needed economic stimulus to the city and to renew the riverside area.
Street and Garden was founded 25 years ago around the idea that street furniture could be more than simply something to sit on. The designs are a reflection of a particular place, community, natural and built assets and history.
