Project Spotlight: A Fairytale Savannah Series Wedding

One of the joys of working in the creative field of Fabric Architecture is the passion for the finished product. Our woodworkers take pride in every step of the process – they go to the lumber yard to hand pick their materials – we have some awesome time-lapses of the lamination process! The finish has […]

Project Spotlight: The Wequassett Resort and Golf Club

I am excited to share this project with you, readers! This one was a unique experience, both in practice (the scale and breadth of this project was tremendous!) and in structure. We worked with Anthi Frangiadis (Hi, Anthi!) to help the folks at the Wequassett Resort complete their dream renovation and install the perfect tent […]

TGIF – a time for photos


Savannah at the St. Regis Hotel in Washington, D.C.

In September and October we built a  40′ x 60′ Savannah Series tent for Sperry Tents D.C. – the newest Sperry Tents territory.  Everything went very well on our second Savannah tent.  After it was built, the whole tent was snugly settled into a padded shipping container and driven to the capitol.  Matt and Tim […]
