Bryan Feld Design takes two street parking spaces in West Hollywood in collaboration with Sef Pinney Design to create a miniature public park through the City of West Hollywood’s pilot program. The concept was to create a bike centric public parklet to bring some greenery back into the city and create a cozy place for pedestrians to take a break and relax, have lunch, or read a book. The east end of the parklet offers plenty of bike parking between a normal U-rack and a two-in-one bike rack bench furniture piece. The parklet also offers a Dero Fixit with Air bike repair station for any bicycle commuters or casual riders in need of a tune up.
The initial proposed concept was for three parking spaces with a sidewalk extension. Based upon feedback we scaled it down to two parking spaces with no sidewalk extension.
Final approved parklet concept for two parking spaces along Santa Monica Blvd.

The build process done offsite. The parklet was designed to disassemble in four platform sections. It was built entirely offsite and then disassembled while the metal components were sent off for an exterior grade powder coat before rebuilding it onsite.
