Case Study: Banner Health

This project had a different goal for the sails other than to provide shade. The goal of this project was to attract attention to the main hospital entrance.

Our challenge was to design shade sails that would be large enough to attract attention and still fit into the proposed area. This area was bounded by the hospital to the east and a 5 foot wide strip of landscaping to the west. Since this was the main entrance to the hospital we were required to work around incoming and outgoing patients.

Shade sails look great when several of the same shape are combined in a row. The geometry of the building seemed to suggest 3 sails. The palm trees on the opposite side of the building were in positions that would allow posts on either side. The final design had 3 sails, crossing over each other as they covered the driveway.
