The Elephant Park Timber Re-use Project
Created & Sold By:
The Elephant Park Timber project was devised by Lend Lease UK to re-purpose trees removed during the regeneration of Elephant & Castle in central London. The project saw the felled trees milled, transformed and reinstated as unique indoor and outdoor furniture within the public areas of the development. Outdoor furniture was commissioned and offcuts were distributed for use in community projects, parks and gardens. Heliconia Furniture were commissioned to produce furniture from the felled London Plane trees for the interior communal spaces.
