Paul Street East, London

Mendip 4P 500 Tensile Canopy

Project Outline

Situated in the heart of London's vibrant Shoreditch, the client brief was to create a shaded canopy area within the urban garden to encourage social interaction by the students. 

Paul Street East, London

Our Solution

Originally a 3 sided canopy was proposed, but after considering the movement in the fabric, Base suggested developing this idea into a 4 sided hypar canopy. The Mendip 4P 500 was chosen due to it's distinctive curved masts that would provide a sculptural quality that compliments the high quality landscaping in its surroundings. This creates an inspirational social space as well as presenting a practical solution for the garden in many weather conditions.

 

Results

With the manufacturing and installation completed smoothly, the canopy now fits in beautifully with it's surroundings of a living wall, decking and urban garden space. The Mendip 4P 500 easily provides an upbeat and engaging social space or maybe even a study space once freshers is over!
