Working with Studio GA Architects, the Sydney Anglican Schools Corporation and Richard Johnson Anglican School, our team was challenged to design several large span fabric structures that complimented the upgrades to the outdoor areas. Greenline had to create waterproof walkway links between two areas within the school, cover a refurbished basketball court and provide cover to newly created outdoor eating areas.
Customising almost every detail to create truly unique spaces, the Greenline team designed a standard cantilever, a gullwing cantilever and two barrel vault structures. The installation was coordinated with civil works and wasn’t without challenges, yet the space created allows staff and students to use the areas at all times throughout the year and continues to wow visitors and passers-by. In the words of the founding Principal Paul Cockrem, the structures have completely transformed the school.
We know that when it comes to designing shade, there’s no one-size-fits-all formula. We’ll
consider the space, the humans who use it, and how the sun fits into the picture, before applying our shade to the best effect. Maximum shade, strongest materials, longest life.
While every job at Greenline shares the same objective (glorious shade), the outcomes are all kinds of unique.
