Please describe the project specifications

Custom designed wave awnings and "tulips" at an outdoor promenade.

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

This outdoor pavilion lacked any entrance canopies, and the destination had no appeal from the main part of the mall. The client wanted to add vertical elements that would entice shoppers and rolling canopies along the pedestrian walkways that would enhance visibility and provide protection from the elements.

What is unique or complex about the project?

The unique wave shape of the awnings.

What were the results of the project?

The new awnings and tulips have already attracted more attention to the building and provide cover to shoppers as they walk around the shopping center.
