Entrance Canopies in Kent

Posted on 24/03/2017

Martello Grove Academy
When A&S Landscape was approached to create an entrance canopy for Martello Grove Academy we worked with them to make sure their entrance gave a welcome that matched their standards.

Project – Motiva Linear creates striking Entrance at Martello Grove Academy

Product – Motiva Linear

Requirement – Providing a welcome first impression is the main goal of an entrance canopy.

They can offer a place to wait, a piece of visual signage that directs you subconsciously to the way in and also offer, simply, a little protection from the weather. But that first impression, that feeling of being welcomed, that’s the most important part.

When designing a strong entrance canopy you have to remember that it’s like extending your hand in greeting. A large, open and confident entrance canopy will suggest the same about the experience inside.

When A&S Landscape was approached to create an entrance canopy for Martello Grove Academy we worked with them to make sure their entrance gave a welcome that matched their standards.

Solution – Whilst our Motiva Linear can be used for a variety of applications, it does look particularly good as an entrance canopy. At Martello Grove Academy, we installed a large Motiva Linear at 2200mm x 1600mm and another outside their reception at 13000mm x 3600mm, both of which were finished in a crisp white Dura-Coat™ paint with matching Alu-Tuff™ guttering and clear 4mm polycarbonate roofing. Which, in simple terms, means it looks fantastic and matches the aesthetic of the school beautifully.

Result – Walking up to the entrance of Martello Grove Academy is a warming experience, projecting Martello Grove as a generous and professional institution whilst also offering a place to wait, sheltered from the rain.

It’s fair to say that the addition of their new entrance canopy design has made a huge impact on the aesthetic and experience of the school as a whole!
