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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Project Spotlight: Dune Cottage

The Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island is an amazing place. The sprawling, classic inn is a bright summery yellow, and is complemented by the grounds and the lovely beach-side restaurant – the Dune Cottage. As the sun warmed quickly to the summer season, we were brought in to design and install a matched […]

Project Spotlight: the Sperry Arch

This winter we have been developing a new structure. The new Sperry Arch has been both inspired and informed by experiences constructing our wood-framed Savannah series tents. On a smaller scale, similar rafters and a strong, handcrafted wooden support structure make a wonderful connector, walkway, entryway, or stand-alone shelter. The Sperry arch is similar in […]

Project Spotlight: Custom sidewalls for the Nantucket Hotel

One of our most recent custom projects was a set of sidewalls for the outdoor dining area at the Nantucket Hotel & Resort. The architecture gave us an unusual space to work with; the second floor protects the pillared seating area from above, and now our sidewalls will make the area into a cozy outdoor […]

Project Spotlight: The Castle Hill Inn

The first season of the new tent at the Castle Hill Inn is coming to a close. The tent has hosted many weddings and special events, and we have been thrilled to see all kinds of positive feedback up on the web as more and more happy couples held their receptions on the terrace. We […]

Project Spotlight: Mass Maritime Custom Canopy

This spring we built and installed a new Custom Canopy for the Mass Maritime Academy in Buzzards Bay, MA. It was our pleasure to provide a new sailcloth canopy for such a prestigious center for nautical education. The tent replaces an older model they had commissioned with us that had been used for a number […]

Project Spotlight: Pergola at the Bay Club in Mattapoisett, MA

This summer we installed a new pergola awning at the Bay Club in Mattapoisett, MA. The outdoor dining area was in need of some shade, and we built a custom awning out of our favorite Sunbrella®. The decision-makers selected Burgundy, a lovely deep color that matches the existing patio umbrellas – and some of the […]
