Construction of a translucent marquee

Porch in the garden of a house in Gava Mar

Construction of a marquee in a house for sun protection, thus extending the living-room connected to the outdoor garden. It has been built neutral and discreet, which in no way will out-shine the already existing structure.

It's l-shaped and runs parallel to the ground, bending to it at one end to form an inviting portal outlining the passage from the house entrance to the garden.

The translucent polymethacrylate is chosen for its neutral image and the visual lightness it offers, as well as its role as sunscreen. At night, the entire structure is illuminated transforming it into a light portal.
