[Shades (Thailand) Co. Ltd.] Muang, Phuket, Thailand
A homeowner wanted a set of awnings for the front (and sea-facing) wall of his new residence to solve the issue of rain running down the windows. The client had a preference for clean lines, so the Shades Co. Ltd. design team drew a set of simple designs based on cantilevered, frame-supported tensioned fabric. With gusty winds common in the coastal location, the company’s challenge was also to ensure that the connection of the awnings to the building was strong enough to withstand the wind. The client was pleased with the company’s design that provided an uncomplicated—and beautiful—addition to his house.
