Requirements: The tables needed to fit seamlessly within the sidewalk lightposts and remain low profile as to not obstruct walking traffic.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_text_separator title=”Solutions” margin=”35″][vc_column_text]Small birds seen hopping around under the tables of local cafés and outdoor eating areas in Victoria were the inspiration for this project.

Douglas & Yates – The Heart of Victoria

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator height=”45″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Douglas and Yates is a major intersection in downtown Victoria. The DVBA created the stART on Douglas project to revitalize the area and improve the space for local residents. A bike shelter and repair station, interactive art installation and the project which Leaven collaborated on a sidewalk food kiosk.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]The theme of the food kiosk installation was based on local migration and the momentary pauses we take throughout the day to eat. We were influenced by small birds like the finch flying in, eating under the tables of a sidewalk café then off to their next destination.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][vc_column background=”#ffffff” width=”1/2″ el_class=”padding-left”][vc_column_text]
