Plymouth Civic Centre

Atrium Fabric Sails

Project Outline

We were approached to suggest an effective way to disguise an awkward void in the Council’s Banking Hall reception ceiling. 

Plymouth Civic Centre

Our Solution

The solution was to provide four triangular fabric sails tensioned onto frames and suspended from the ceiling above. 

We designed, manufactured and installed the tensile fabric sails, suspension cables and fittings. The sails were made from a lightweight pvc coated coated glass mesh fabric called Natte. 

Results

Combined with uplighters the sails are a dynamic and eye catching feature for the reception area.
