Ashcombe School, UK

The canopy forms the cover to the new external court yard space at Ashcombe Children’s School. 

The simple cost effective conical design uses a free standing central mast with the perimeter supported at eaves level by a continuous ring beam. Stability of the eaves structure is provided via a radial arrangement of portalised leg supports, which in turn act to concealed rain water pipes. 

The PVC Type II fabric provides the lightweight weather protection to the central courtyard space.
