In terms of our LSAA Design Awards, a Medium sized Fabric Structure, or tensioned membrane structure) would have a surface area of between 250 and 1000 sqm.

Note that many "Large" fabric structures may be made from individual fabric panels of 250-1000 sqm.

Again, a large Mall covering might comprise multiple conical structures of 250-1000 sqm.

Soul Surfers Paradise, Australia 

APPLICATION OF PROJECT:

Hospitality  and Recreation:  The tensile fabric structures  provide  shade canopies  for the patrons of the alfresco dining areas as well as creating  an aesthetic  focal point to the front of the apartment  building  at Soul, Surfers Paradise.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Two tensile canopy structures were created as part of the $850 million beachfront  Soul development  project in Surfers Paradise. The multi‐level PTFE membrane structures covering the outdoor dining areas were designed to follow the radial lines of the adjacent building and walkways while seamlessly integrating with the surrounding buildings.

The design requirements were:

•  Offer weather protection for patrons

•  To maintain ocean views from all levels of surrounding buildings

•  Create an architectural feature to attract attention to the area

•  Materials and design to allow for minimal maintenance and cleaning

The tensile shade canopies utilise the full benefit of Soul’s alfresco dining areas, highlighting  and capturing  the ocean  views  and  enhancing   the  beauty  of  the  surrounding   natural  environment.   The  result  is  a  striking architectural landmark that attracts attention to the Soul development.
