Abito Apartments

Tensile Fabric Atrium Canopy

Project Outline

Clever, simple, functional and high spec - all the buzz words that Abito attribute to their Salford Quays waterside development. So they thought, what better than to literally top off their brand new residential apartment building than a dramatic and striking tensile fabric architectural centrepiece. 

Abito Apartments

Result

Elegantly perched on the rooftops like a proud toupee, our fabric roof structure covers the central atrium with the tensioned fabric allowing a diffused light into the well of the development. Defining themselves as the creators of affordable yet chic urban living, it is these aesthetic finales that create the talking points Abito rely on to keep their buildings one step ahead of their market competitors.
