Accoya brings sustainability and durability to Gascoigne Park

Gascoigne Park, a vibrant public space renowned for its innovative design and sustainable materials, stands as a testament to the versatility and durability of Accoya wood. This project aimed to create an inviting environment that seamlessly blended functionality with aesthetic appeal.

Approximately 15 cubic metres of raw Accoya wood was used in the construction of Gascoigne Park. This FSC (C012330) certified material was sourced by Moveart, a supplier known for their commitment to sustainability.

Uncoated Accoya wood was chosen for Gascoigne Park due to its exceptional durability and barefoot-friendly nature, offering visitors a comfortable experience free from the risk of splinters.

Landscape architect Turkington Martin had a keen focus on integrating Accoya wood into the landscape of Gascoigne Park. The architects recognised the unique properties of Accoya and specifically specified its use in various elements of the park’s design, contributing to the project’s overall success.

This project in particular is unique because of the three object circles, which are the first moveable Moveart sculptures ever. They provide users with the possibility to adapt common public spaces in their own individual way because of the changing nature of each object.
