Stylish breakout seating with a natural touch at Arkle Road
Cassidy Bros has crafted and delivered a stylish seating area incorporating plant life to provide a relaxing outdoor living space at a new commercial premise located at Arkle Road in Dublin.
Working closely with Dermot Foley Architects and Walls Construction, Cassidy Bros’ concrete design engineers came up with an architectural drawing for a practical installation which adds great vale to the aesthetics of the project in Sandyford.
The result was the installation of three exquisite exposed, polished, black concrete planters with incorporated shrubberies and stunning hardwood benches.
Cassidy Bros Managing Director, David Cassidy, said: “As always it was a pleasure to deal with both Walls Construction and Dermot Foley Architects in the delivery of an impressive project. The Arkle Road job focussed on finding the balance between practicality and aesthetics. We are happy to have delivered a stunning polished concrete in our unique Notre-Dame black mix to create an outdoor living area that people will love to make use of for many years to come.”
