St Enoch Centre

Mesh Screens and Sunshade Sails

Project Outline

The brief was to create thirty six twisted silver mesh ribbons, served to soften the geometry of the glass roof support steelwork in the main Mall at the St Enoch's Centre, the home of shopping in Glasgow. Three different types of fabric mesh were used to form a vertical screen wall above the Hamleys store. However the main feature is a huge array of seventy five fabric sails suspended on frames above the remodelled food court.

Our Solution

Base Structures carried out a sunshading analysis as part of the design stage and used three fabrics with different translucency's to provide interest. The installation was carried out by our in-house rope access installation team at night to allow the Centre to trade continuously.

 

Results

The fabric sails provide welcome glare control, mask unsightly ductwork and help to provide a sense of place for the restaurant area.
