City of Terrebonne
A public furniture collection for a new neighbourhood
The city of Terrebonne, Quebec, Canada, commissioned a consortium of landscape architects, lighting designers and industrial designers to build Urbanova, a new community adhering to the most recent standards in sustainable suburban development. Our contribution was a collection of subtle public furniture, including a bench and table, a bus shelter, signage, a bike rack, a recycling bin, and a display column.
Fostering greater harmony with nature
In Terrebonne, urban pockets are scattered across a mostly natural landscape. We thus wanted to design pieces that would blend into the environment in a more organic manner. To accomplish this, we favoured soft shapes and designed a non-linear support that gives landscape architects the flexibility to plan layouts that take into consideration the natural surroundings.
