To create a functional and stylish sculptural feature to mark the centenary of the school.
Ibstock Glazed bricks were used to create a colourful, durable and fully functional bench. Red, Blue, Yellow and Green Glazed bricks, chosen to represent the different Belmont School houses, have been bonded in an interlocking puzzle composition to express interaction and reflect the varied multicultural backgrounds of the Belmont students. Inserts of hand-made tiles feature parts of the school crest and other school motifs.
A popular meeting point during school breaks, the bench is designed in stepped format on a sloping site, with levels comfortable for all ages. Bullnose bricks at the edges help to create an exciting visual and ensure additional safety and comfort for children using, mounting and dismounting the bench.
