In conjunction with Merlo Coffee and Blue Sky Nursery in Alberton, Saunders Havill Group proudly launched its inaugural PARK(ing) day event on Friday 16 September. PARK(ing) Day is an annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places.
Barista made coffee and public open space - what a mix!
Located in front of our Bowen Hills office at 9 Thompson Street, our Landscape Architects and Urban Designers whipped up all of the essential elements to create a relaxing, reclaimed parking space to enjoy with a morning coffee.
The event was very successful and became the talk of the neighbourhood as locals enjoyed their Merlo Coffee in the sunshine amongst the “urban agriculture” park space.
