In the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan, Llanfair Meadows is one of Edenstone Homes’ newest development of family homes, located on the north-east border of the village of Aberthin.
Studio Response was appointed by Edenstone Homes to commission a series of artworks with dual functional use for the development’s public open space, contributing to a high-quality living environment which reflects Edenstone Homes’ commitment to design excellence and attention to detail. Studio Response appointed Cornish sculptor Ben Barrell for this commission and Barrel created a series of Pebble Seats, which are designed, solid cast and polished in his studio and can be used by all members of the Llanfair Meadows community. Ben Barrell’s seating sculptures now take centre stage in the development’s open space.
