Play Area Shelter with Shutters Installed in Stoke on Trent
Posted on 28/08/2015
We suggested our Motiva Linear with green steelwork and brown shutter doors, the effect would mean that it tied in beautifully with the work that had already been done.
Project – Shelter with sides and shutters – Forest Park School
Requirement – Adding a new element to a building can raise a lot of questions.
You want your new addition to bring some extra personality but you don’t want it to undermine the design that’s already in place. You want it to feel fresh, but not different, not ‘stuck on’.
And when you’re using a modern, attractive timber design it’s natural to question if a steel structure will look out of place.
That was the question Forest Park School were chewing over when they contacted A&S Landscape. They’d been looking at playground shelters for schools and wanted to be sure the work would add to their current look and feel especially when they were hoping to include secure shutters and a colourful roof.
Solution – We suggested our Motiva Linear with green steelwork and brown shutter doors, the effect would mean that it tied in beautifully with the work that had already been done, the brown doors connecting to the timber work and meaning that the colourful Polycarbonate roofing felt like part of the original designs.
Result – A playful, fun and exciting outside shelter idea. This project demonstrates wonderfully that steel canopies don’t need to clash with existing building design, even where timber is used. In fact, doesn’t this just make the timber look even better? Forest Park School were understandably delighted with the work we completed and how well it blends in. Take a second look, there’s a canopy there!
