Bench Modular Seating Creates Striking Centrepiece for Wembley Park

Bench seating has been installed into Wembley Park, London, to create a striking sculptural centrepiece for their 'Market Square'.

"Bench seating was just what
I was looking for"

Leading the design of the exterior space was John McHugh, founder, John McHugh Design, who was tasked with creating an inspirational space to reflect Wembley Park's unique character.

"I was looking for something very sculptural and was searching online for the ideal solution. I came across the GeoMet range and to me it was just what I was looking for.

The seats were 'stand out', simple' and 'functional'. I specified the Bench seating in orange which happened to be bang on for the client, since unknown to me at the time this was going to be their new corporate brand colour.

The site is owned and developed by Quintain; it's part of a £4 billion project and it's a very different landscape to design as it has so many uses: residential, entertainment and retail. I needed to create something very fresh and relevant to the site that would give 'crossover'."

Modular and multifunctional

Creating the ideal seating for somewhere as vibrant and distinctive as Wembley Park was no easy task. John McHugh, head of design, explains:

"My client wanted something very different for the urban landscape, that's why I was brought in to create a fresh and exciting approach.

My background is in TV as a Production Designer, though my creative abilities and skillset have afforded me opportunities to work across many other areas including corporate, so fortunately this experience lent itself perfectly to my client wanting to think outside of the box.

To add a touch of drama to the design it was decided to make the seating multi-use. The team at GeoMet were very flexible as I had a unique design I needed them to make. We needed to create a 'W' and 'P' for Wembley Park which could be used for various events at the arena. A series of 'L' shaped benches were created to be placed in the market square and to be re-modulated for use at the arena for other events.

The majority of the time the benches sit around green spaces in the market square to give the community somewhere to rest, whilst also adding a striking centrepiece to the urban landscape, but when required can be easily moved to the Arena for multiple uses. The design has worked perfectly, and my client, Quintain, are incredibly pleased with the end result."
