The goal of this geometric awning was to protect the poolscape below from the fierce sun above. The awning’s mahogany frame boasts laminated posts and braces that support 13’ arches. An 83’ segmented, scarf-jointed mahogany beam—curved to match the pool’s edge—was an impressive feat of woodworking by our carpenters, not to mention a challenging shipping job for our crew. All wood is finished in a spar varnish. Each post is supported by a 4” aluminum strut to manage upload and download forces. For the fabric, the homeowners opted for a tight mesh, sewn into seven pie-shaped pieces.
