Three Shade Sail Canopy Scheme

Architect Ilsa Rutgers approached us to assist her devising a canopy scheme for Kerry County Council. They were looking to create an attractive covered area for The Square in the centre of Listowel, that would stimulate more outdoor interaction including live performances in the existing pedestrian area.

The Council were very keen that the solution be sympathetic to the heritage and historical architecture of The Square.

Our Solution

We proposed a series of three of our pre-designed Malvern 4P 700 canopies modified to be grouped around a central mast. This provided good coverage with the minimum of structure and resulted in a dynamic and attractive feature for the town centre. 

The Results

The structure is also fitted with colour change LED lights with various pre-programmed settings that adds further visual impact at night.
