Parkwest

Fabric Clad Space Frame Roof

Project Outline

This tensile fabric cladding system is designed to cover the existing space frame roof to the Park West Railway Station. Having not long completed an identical tensile structure at nearby Adamstown Railway station, our clients Mero and Irish Rail were very pleased with the success of that structure and happy for this second fabric clad roof to go ahead.

Our Solution

Using fabric as cladding in this way allows far more natural light into the building than more traditional alternatives and creates a very pleasant station environment.
