…a svelt, sustainable structure.It lives...

As always, we were solving design problems as we went which meant that it took longer to build than the ‘raw construction time’. 90% of the way to completion we realised that we didn’t have the headroom to complete the structure as I’d sketched it that afternoon – but we still managed an arch 3.5m high, of 5.3m span and well…the photos speak for themselves. For those interested, it’s worth noting that the structure is slightly parabolic to reduce the amount of bending in the arch.
