Outdoor shade in Stevenage
Posted on 13/02/2017
When we were called upon to add an outdoor shade canopy at Maxet House in Stevenage we made sure to add something else as well.
Project – Maxima Shade Sail provides shade at Maxet House
Product – Maxima Shade Sail
Requirement – What makes something ‘good design’.
Is it that it does the job it was set out to do? I suppose that could be a qualifying factor.
So what makes something ‘great design’? It does the job, of course, but it has to offer something more, something bigger.
Because ‘great design’ doesn’t just work, it makes you feel something too.
This isn’t the same as artwork, we don’t want to become too emotional about outdoor shelter design but we do want to generate a feeling of some kind.
Security, wonder, excitement… great design will always trigger an emotion and at A&S Landscape we design all of our outdoor canopies to not just serve a purpose but to create an experience too.
So when we were called upon to add an outdoor shade canopy at Maxet House in Stevenage we made sure to add something else as well.
Solution – We installed Maxima Shade Sails
Installed at 7190mm x 4990mm this Maxima Shade Sail comprised of 3 triangle sails on 6 uprights and was finished with Natural fabric on deep grey steelwork (RAL 6015)
Result – This great design not only solves a problem, creating large areas of shade on hot summers days, it also evokes an experience. It is in stark contrast to the harsh, straight lines of the buildings that surround it and it offers something more playful to help fire the imagination.
