A secondary proposal: As a secondary proposal to consider, there is also an opportunity to place a sculptural seating feature in the window overlooking the park in the middle of Northampton Square. This piece needs to be functional and robust to withstand the rigours of high volumes of foot traffic over its lifetime. It also needs to be a relatively simple structure to fill the not insignificant space yet come in at budget.
David proposes to create a simple, clean lined seating structure constructed from man-made materials over a metal frame. Whilst simple and elegant, the piece will also provide visual interest and remain versatile enough to be adapted, decorated and detailed when further along the design process.
