Marina Concourse is a new apartment development by Sunland Group - superbly positioned within the master planned surroundings of the Concourse, adjoining the prestigious grounds of Royal Pines Resort and 15 minutes from the Gold Coast’s spectacular surf beaches. To complete the sophisticated and classic design of the two new residential towers with 110 luxury apartments, the elegant MDT-tex Tulip umbrellas in all white finish were selected to provide shade for the new neighbourhood leisure and café precinct.
STUNNING TULIP UMBRELLAS
Eight umbrellas - collapsible by hand winding system - in the size of 6 x 6 m were installed not only to give sun but also rain protection, a unique feature of MDT-tex Tulip umbrellas which runs rain water through the double mast system directly into the integrated drainage. Almost 300 sqm of outdoor area has now been turned into protected space available for the new residents and local community to play and connect.
Grimshaw Architects & MDT-tex have designed the shading system "Tensilation". It offers roofing with modular roofs, as well as benefits of a unique structure. The system can be used independently for events or connected to buildings and awnings. The super light weight (30 kg) makes it easy to set up, like here at the Meat Market in Melbourne Australia.
