Harold Park is a significant inner-city renewal project by Mirvac with one third of the site dedicated to publicly accessible open space, thoughtfully planned by JMD design. Emerdyn’s iconic garden furniture was selected to celebrate the site and its neighbouring classic heritage building, The Tramsheds.
In creating this vibrant urban precinct, JMD design specified a range of Emerdyn Garden Chairs and 9m long custom Garden Seats in a mix of multi-coloured and all-white battens defining the architecturally-designed play area from the stately rolling hill near The Tramsheds.
1968 saw the first coloured slat Garden Seats produced by Emerdyn. The furniture was distributed through Myer, Grace Bros and Woolworths and almost immediately populated thousands of backyards across Australia continuing throughout the seventies and eighties.
Still the same family-owned business, Emerdyn produce EM054 Garden Seats and EM053 Garden Chairs in custom lengths, finishes and back-to-back.
In the same precinct, Emerdyn also built one of the largest timber playground stacks in Australia and custom timber Teepees for client Ford Civil. This project was all encompassing from tender to drawing, construction and installation. 'The Stack' stands about 6 metres tall x 12 metres long and includes 2 large worm slippery dips, internal stairs and climbing nets.
