Colwyn Bay Seats | Case Study

Project: Colwyn Bay Waterfront Project

Goose Foot were selected by Freshwest Design to work together in producing ten eye catching seats and benches for the Colwyn Bay promenade, as part of the Colwyn Bay Waterfront Regeneration Project.

Colwyn Bay Seats | Designed by FreshWest

The seat frames were laser cut and fabricated at our state-of-the-art factory in Darwen, UK,  using 316 marine grade stainless steel and kebony syp timbers. The final fabrication, assembly and installation was undertaken by Freshwest Design. These bespoke seats were specifically designed to stop people in their tracks and provoke discussion from the general public.

The Colwyn Bay Waterfront Project combines the renewal of coastal defences with regeneration improvements to the promenade, creating a modern, sustainable and attractive waterfront. A key element of the project is the idea of circular movement – to encourage people using obvious road and pedestrian signs to travel along the promenade, up to the town centre and up to Old Colwyn near Parc Eirias.

Graham Wood, General Manager for Goose Foot said: “We were honoured to be asked by Freshwest Design to take part in this iconic project. Colwyn Bay has changed significantly over the last 18 months and we hope that these seats will be an asset to the local community and an attraction for visitors on the promenade.”
