In the renovation, the outdoor dining area was demolished down to the existing steel tube structure. Kingspan Light + Air manufactured a fully engineered, customized and prefabricated vaulted canopy to fit the existing steel structure. Kingspan provided a clear anodized aluminum structure, and six unique glazing colors designed to bring the owner’s vision to life.
“We knew colored glass wouldn’t work on this budget,” says Zack Woods, AIA, with Gardner Architects. “But with the Kingspan product, we could get the bright tones of color the customer wanted, and we could cover more square footage, spanning a full patio instead of a very small area.”
Mindful of the project budget, Kingspan provided a variety of color panels with no high set-up costs. Non-standard “off the rack” hues lend a lush, custom-job look. “The tones of colors used give this a unique feel,” Zack says, “and kept the budget on track.”
