THE PORCH

Philadelphia, PA

THE PORCH AT 30TH STREET STATION

Groundswell was brought on by UCD to redesign neglected space outside 30th Street Station with a series of unique parklet ‘stacks’. Tables and chairs are arranged on the traditional porch decking platforms, turf areas offer opportunities to lay out and lounge in the sun, and the raised planter beds are furnished with reclaimed steel umbrella trellises for vines to grow up and into. The space is rounded out with large, colorful porch swings and a one-of-a-kind over-sized dominoes set, to really bring home the vibe of your own summer porch.
