Waterworks C.A.N.: Canopy Design

August 30, 2015

As your project ideas come in, we have become aware of how crucial the front garden area is for delivering events; the Folly is a tight squeeze at only 3m diameter and accessible only by our spiral staircase.

We are therefore designing a canopy for the front courtyard that can be put up in the rain.  We are inviting you to come along and get an insight glimpse into the architectural design process with Re. Future.  See what is considered – space, heritage context, materials, engineering, visuals and how this informs the end product.
