The Canopy at Rosenthal

The Canopy at Rosenthal is a complex redevelopment project in Lane Cove, Sydney including over 6,000m2 of public space, including playgrounds, parks and landscaping, entertainment areas, retail services such as Coles and ALDI, BBQ’s and amenities.

Fabritecture were contracted for the design and construction of a bespoke architectural ETFE link canopy as part of the larger collaborative project by ADCO Constructions, Lane Cove Council and the local community.

The canopy is made from two ETFE pneumatic cushions that were designed to follow the rolling curvature of the main roof. The cushions are connected to secondary steel angles that follow the perimeter of the rolling roof structure opening. The pneumatic cushions are constructed from two layers of clear ETFE film. 18018
