Leaf Shaped Tensile Fabric Structure

We were approached by Loughborough University to create two covered seating areas at their Creative Arts Centre - to encourage outdoor eating.

The Virgo structure is one of our pre-designed Tensile Fabric Structures and worked perfectly in this first instance, as its legs could be spaced away from the existing building's foundation. The canopy also has relatively small foundations for the coverage that the canopy provides - meaning less sub surface disturbance. 


The second canopy can be seen here where a more bespoke solution to fix to the existing building was required.
