Springing into 2017!

Hello friends! It’s been a long time since our last entry. The business is ever growing, despite our occasional nostalgia for a slower pace. Gone are the days of seven people sitting around a wood-stove with muffins at coffee break in the morning. But now we have three locations of wonderful employees thriving and crafting […]

Crisp Flatbread: delicious AND well-shaded

You know that feeling you get, when you wake up and the air is crisp? The sunlight looks like clear water, and you know that fall is just around the corner? Apparently we aren’t there yet. Bummer. You’ll notice, because of how it’s 93 degrees and as humid as it gets outside. But the good […]

Dear Santa…

Is this what you’ll be leaving out with your milk and cookies (and carrots for the reindeer, of course)? If so, Santa wants you to know that you have been good! But the workshop is backed up, thanks to intriguing and delightful orders from other good friends. Sperry Fabric Architecture is now working from a […]

Project Spotlight: The Wequassett Resort and Golf Club

We worked with Anthi Frangiadis (Hi, Anthi!) to help the folks at the Wequassett Resort complete their dream renovation and install the perfect tent […]

Autumn 2014

Autumn has arrived, and the crisp, cool air is rolling in! Being in Rochester is the best – there are orchards with juicy apples and festive pumpkins in every direction.We are well into scheduling autumn take downs of tension awnings, custom canopies, and any seasonal Sperry structures. Knock on wood, we have been able to wait […]

Previously, on Sperry Fabric Architecture

It’s been such a busy spring!  By spring, I mean as soon as we rung in the New Year (Happy 2014!), the phone started ringing… And hasn’t stopped since!  Here are a few of the projects we have been working on so far, with lots more to come.     Here’s to a busy spring, […]

Savannah Series in Paradise

Since there’s snow all over the place, this must be the perfect day to discuss this puppy.  This is a relatively small, rectangular Savannah Series tent that lives in the Bahamas, gently buffeted by sea breezes. Tragically, I was not in charge of this installation.   Installing a concrete anchored, wood-framed tent is just like […]

Thank goodness!

I’m not sure if you’re aware – but it is Friday today!   Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
