Large Umbrella Shade Completes Outdoor Area at Birmingham School

Having just completed a total reinvention of their play space, spearheaded by a large landscape and groundwork company, A&S Landscape was brought in to complete the look and ensure everything was in balance.

Project – Umbrella shade – Summerhill School, Birmingham

Product – Maxima Umbrella

Requirement – Balance. Ying and Yang. There are many great forces in the world that require a delicate, sympathetic measure to keep them in check. How much ketchup is too much ketchup? And at what point do old socks become more hole than sock? These are valid questions.

But in design, the balance is between form and function, the essential nature of connecting a structure to both its purpose but also its space.
