About

This Work

The architect approached Novum to design multiple canopies with transparent roofs to complement existing ETFE air filled pillow structures on the property. As there was no requirement for thermal insulation, Novum proposed an innovative, single layer of tensioned ETFE to achieve maximum transparency. Stainless steel cables are in ETFE pockets below the membrane to resist wind and snow loads. Simple steelwork supports the very light skin.
