Together with the Office of Public Art, Monmade coordinated a public process for the development of custom site furniture for the Plaza at Hazelwood Green. Supported by The Heinz Endowments, the process included a Request for Qualifications for regional artists, craftspeople, and manufacturers to design and fabricate fixtures for the two-acre space designed by Gustafson Guthrie Nichol (GNN). Selected products for the site were designed in collaboration with the landscape architect, Office of Public Art, and Monmade.

The Plaza is Hazelwood Green’s first outdoor public space and the civic heart of the site.  A 178-acre former brownfield site along the Monongahela River, Hazelwood Green is owned by Almono LP, comprising the Richard King Mellon Foundation, The Heinz Endowments, and the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation. Hazelwood Green is envisioned to become a world-class model for sustainable development that is aligned with community and grounded in the principles of sustainability, equity, and inclusive economic opportunity.

Final products created for the plaza included pedestrian bollards by John Peña, site benches by Brian Peters Studio, decorative tree Grates by Carin Mincemoyer Studio, and a custom bird sculpture by Mobile Sculpture Workshop. Fabrication of the bollards, benches, and tree grates was provided by Technique Architectural Products.
