A fabric facade shade system providing window shade and adding an interesting architectural dimension to a building.

The client was looking to provide sun protection to the north facing elevations of an existing building as well as make an architectural statement out of an otherwise square building.

A self-resolving engineered steel frame structure was designed to attached to the elderly and structurally limited building, with which to take the individually tensioned PVC membrane shade sails.
