Description:

This project was comprised of an installation of 9 overlapping shade sails attaching to 7 pre-existing columns at a private residence in Paradise Valley, Arizona. The sails provide a total of 1,510 square feet of shade.

Purpose:

The client requested an array of shade sails to be installed for the purpose of providing shade to an expansive backyard patio, pool, and splash pad area.

What's unique:

Triangular shade sails are notorious for a satisfying aesthetic, but not for providing a large degree of shade. The homeowner specifically requested triangular shade sails, requiring some additional measures of strategy and deliberation to place them effectively – especially when designing around pre-existing columns! Ultimately, a second round of shade sails, which included three larger rectangular panels, was required to achieve satisfactory shade.

Results:

With the finished installation of nine bright red shade sails, effective shade coverage was achieved. The necessary overlapping and layering of triangular shade sails resulted in a highly designed aesthetic that proved to be unique to most residential projects.
