LaVance Shade Screen in Scottsdale, Arizona by Benjamin Hall (designed with Rhino)

This projection came to life when Mr. Lavance and Benjamin Hall drank a few brew’s at a local pub. Lavance expressed his desire to shad his outdoor BBQ / kitchen. A few napkin sketches later and a real enthusiasm for raw materials that weather and age over time due to the brutal desert sun bearing upon. The high arcing paroblolic steel arcs crest to allow seating behind the counter on the east, while converging to the west to screen the Arizona summer sun.
The wood planks where a fortuitous upcycle opportunity. The wood was found in a back alley and was ripped down into varying thickness. The slats undulate opacity to allow views through at eye level while installed denser above head to block more sun.
Hopefully this is just the beginning of a greater master plan to redefine a stereotypical suburban backyard.
