Jack London Square is the primary location in Oakland for physical and visual access to the waterfront. It is also Oakland’s only ferry port, as well as being home to lots of great restaurants. The objective behind redesigning the area was to make the square more accessible and modern. Colourful furniture from Vestre has been used to draw people into the area and ‘divert’ attention from grey lampposts and other disruptive elements.
Jack London Square’s importance for Vestre:
- It once more demonstrates just how suitable Vestre’s furniture is for promenades
- The project opted for many different configurations of the Bloc range, with long benches, benches back to bank, single benches and litter solutions
In 2016 award-winning landscape designers, The Edible Bus Stop, were commissioned by the Brixton BID to deliver a legacy installation for the Brixton Design Trail as part of the London Design Festival.
