We were approached for this scheme to solve a problem of too much sun for the reception area of this glass-fronted building. 

Beginning with a newly created full 3D model of the space, we added sunpath data, allowing us to understand the extent of the problem, making sure the low winter and high summer sun would be covered.

Then we created the beautiful sails to strategically cover the area required - all of course within the client's budget.

A 5% openness fabric was selected to ensure that  the feeling of outside and space was not lost. 

The sails fix into the space using a strap clamp detail that requires no drilling to the existing columns. 

The interior of the glass can be accessed with a simple unhooking of the fabric.
