Invertarte Canopies

Environmentally driven design of canopies for sun and wind protection in the Candelaria waterfront. This proposal is for a system of canopies located in the waterfront of Candelaria, Tenerife. The site is characterized by year round warm weather combined with a strong trade wind. The project tried to use this winds to create a sensation of thermal comfort by using the shape of the canopies to funnel part of the wind through the seating area instead of blocking it altogether. A number of standardized modules generate a space to seat and experience the sea view while adapt to the existing structure of the F&B business on the site.
