Featured Residential Project


The project is a 7m x 7m offset claw umbrella. It is made of beige shadecloth on a painted gloss black steel frame.

The purpose of the project was to provide shade around  the swimming pool which  would complement the style of buildings and the pool on this smart rural property. Shade was wanted over only part of the pool so that the water did not become too cool but there was still  plenty of shade to escape the hot western sun and protect visiting grandchildren.

Only materials of the highest quality would do for this large 49sm umbrella structure supported by only one post. This umbrella is engineered to cope with stresses from the strong prevailing winds.

The owner was very particular about damage to his manicured grass so any machinery had to be driven over hired ground protection mats so as not to harm the grass or pavers.

An interesting outcome was the lighting effects from the umbrella. This was due to the soft colours used,  shadows along weld lines and the visual flows along the curves of of the umbrella.
