Bamstone was engaged by the City of Port Philip, Yarra Trams and Public Transport Victoria to create custom paving and furniture products for the streetscape upgrade of Acland Street, St Kilda. Both paving and furniture needed to be aesthetically pleasing, extremely durable and complementary to council regulations for MPA, slip resistance and DDA compliance.

The design team at BKK Architects and McGregor Coxall proposed a bold and vibrant pattern of large Bamstone bluestone circles interspersed with custom precast concrete keystones.
