The Malls Basingstoke
The Malls, located in Basingstoke, is a key retail outlet in the town and has been given a major facelift via a £5 million council investment into its complete refurbishment as part of a ‘master plan’ for the whole of Basingstoke town centre.
Saunders Architects conceived a Landmark Gateway Entrance Canopy, which was manufactured and installed by J & J Carter. The Tensile Fabric Structure covers the 403m2 entrance, is 58m clear-span in it’s breadth and supported by two masts and two curved outriggers. Lighting has been integrated to the underside membrane, which required meticulous setting out and patterning.
