The FOODS FOR LIFE Parklet is a removable/ recyclable installation that brings green and human-scaled relief to a hard street environment, here in Gawler Place, the City’s second busiest pedestrian thoroughfare.
If the need arises it can be removed in a matter of hours and re-deployed to another location.
Fabricated from steel and timber, it can be recycled.
For now though, in this current life, natural finishes reflect the focus of the health food shop; and pre-existing internal color-branding is drawn outside on tabletops.
It's planted edges not only bring a small pocket of greenery to the street, but it's deciduous elm sits proudly as a symbol of the seasons in an environment overwhelmingly of things man-made.
Not only was this a pilot project for ACC, but that OUR clients had just taken on the business and were still finding their feet. ...But already it is finding itself to be a niche destination for the downtown Community and has proven a financial success for the owners.
The Parklet has become an exclamation mark along Gawler Place, an installation that stops people, allowing them to notice and enter a shopfront that often they previously walked past.
