Case Study: Foxtree Apartments

The foxtree apartments were undergoing a updating remodel. The original plan to use wood lattice for shade was changed in favor of more modern shade sails.

The challenge here was in the decision to use sails rather than wood lattice. One of the considerations was the maintenance of wood vs. the maintenance of sails. Shade sails require no maintenance and carry a 10 year UV warranty. When the sails do need replacement, it is only the fabric that needs to be replaced.

Shade sails were ultimately chosen in 3 different styles. There were the classic HyPar sails, one flat sail with angled posts, a double unit sharing 2 posts and a shade structure.
