Napkin Sketches Turn into Stunning Structure

January 25, 2016




CREATIVITY CAN COME FROM ANYWHERE.

The Indian Wells Tennis Garden pavilion started as napkin sketches. Structurflex stepped up to the challenge of transforming hand-drawn concepts into a tangible, breathtaking structure that’s as functional as it is beautiful.

Indian Wells Tennis Garden is a full-service tennis club, and is home to the third-largest tennis stadium in the world. It hosts the BNP Paribas Open, which is the world’s fifth-largest tennis tournament.

SERVING THE CLIENT BY STEPPING UP TO THE CHALLENGE

The main challenge of the project was transforming three conceptual sketches into an actual shade structure that met the architect’s vision. The Indian Wells Tennis Garden’s location near Palm Springs, California presents unique desert weather challenges because it’s sunny an average of 350 days a year. The owner wanted a lightweight structure that would have little impact on the site, and it also had to be completed before the annual tennis tournament.

AN ELEGANT STRUCTURE THAT ENHANCES THE ENVIRONMENT

Structurflex produced the engineering documents for the design, and we used single tube sections for support, rather than complex trusses that would detract from the clean simplicity the architect envisioned. We completed the canopy on time, and we exceeded everyone’s expectations.
