Linear Canopy and StarSail at Paulton Junior School, Bristol
Posted on 26/02/2015
When it comes to outdoor shelter design there is no better combination than the killer mix of form and function, an aesthetically beautiful design alongside a devastatingly pragmatic structure.
Project – Linear canopy and starsail at Paulton Junior School, Bristol
Requirement – Bonny and Clyde. Salt and Pepper. Dark Chocolate and Ginger (honestly, try it)
Some things are meant to go together. And when it comes to outdoor shelter design there is no better combination than the killer mix of form and function, an aesthetically beautiful (but still effective) design alongside a devastatingly pragmatic structure (that just so happens to look amazing too).
And like all good partnerships, it’s hard to keep these two things apart. So when we installed this Motiva Mono at Paulton School, we weren’t surprised to get a second call.
Solution – Installing a sheltered walkway in the shape of a Motiva Mono in white steelwork with opal roofing added some crisp modern lines to Paulton School.
A few weeks later when we returned to install a Maxima StarSail in blue steelwork and bright yellow fabric, we were able to finish the team by bringing some playful energy to the playground that adds a layer of the whimsical.
Result – Two installations that work incredibly well together, bouncing off each other visually whilst both fulfilling important jobs, providing suitable shelter from the elements and shade from direct sun.
Find Out More – Our products do like to work together but they’re pretty independent and can handle a solo mission too.
They key is knowing what you’re aiming to achieve.
By working with an experienced team of talented designers you can be confident that design will always follow the most important question ‘what kind of outdoor space will benefit you and your students the most?’.
From there, we work to pull together the most appropriate proposal.
