Weave Youth & Community are a non-profit organization that have been working with disadvantaged and vulnerable young people and families in the City of Sydney for over 35
years. They engaged Sticks & Stones Landscape Design to collaborate on a neglected public space in Redfern’s housing block, Poets Corner.
The Brief :
To create a safe and welcoming space for the community.
The area was made up of unkept lawn, three picnic tables and a concrete set
of steps. There was a need for shade and protection from the sun, outdoor cooking facilities and incorporating something for the children. Everything needed to be low
maintenance and hardy as no irrigation could be incorporated, plus it was a high traffic area.
From its conception, this project valued the importance of engaging the community. Throughout its construction and ongoing maintenance, the community were involved and contributed to the space.
