Please describe the project specifications

A seikh temple is the scene of this 30m long rolled canopy, creating an all weather space between buildings. There was an open space between the verandahs of the two adjacent buildings, but because both verandahs were the same height waterproof shade sails would not work. We designed an arched canopy using the triax system and custom made soffit brackets to eliminate the need for obstructive posts.

What is unique or complex about the project?

Because of the size of the structure we made it in two pieces, each approimately 15m long x 3.2 wide. These were seamlessly joined together. This was to satisfy the planning issue of staying under 50 square metres.
