Location | Firestone, Colorado
At the entry to the development, and acting as the primary shade and seating area for the multiple intersections of the regional trail system, the bench, located beneath the Sunset Pavilion, is crafted to allow for multiple experiences. The fluid shape allows visitors to sit, climb, recline and view the landscape. The curves of the bench evolved from algorithmic abstractions from the “core of the pavilion – the point centering on the overhead perforations of the solstices and at which the geographic monuments in the distance are plotted.” Center point, the point centering on the overhead perforations of the solstices and at which the geographic monuments in the distance are plotted.
The shear weight and materiality of the bench contrasts with the seemingly delicate structure overhead. Both combine to offer an opportunity for rest and shade while highlighting the ever changing Front Range sunsets. Once foundations are complete, the form-work will be craned in place and the bench cast in-situ.
