The Trail Foundation Boardwalk Furnishings

In collaboration with the Trail Foundation, Studio Balcones designed a set of furnishings for rest, relaxation, and remembrance along the Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail, locally known as the Boardwalk.

These were designed to harmoniously blend in with the surrounding built and natural environments and will be placed throughout the 1.2-mile Boardwalk for all to enjoy. Using reclaimed white oak trees collected by the City of Austin’s Urban Forestry program and fabricated by Hatch Workshop, these benches will be physical representations of Austin’s commitment to ecological restoration.
