    Demountable music pavilion

THORN

Two renowned harmony-orchestra’s based in the community of Thorn wished to have a local accommodation for their public performances and presentations.

The city council decided to grant this wish by covering a part of a historical monastery-complex with a semi-permanent membrane structure. Tentech designed a pavilion to accommodate a stage for 100 musicians and seats for 225 spectators. The tent-shape is designed with respect to its historical environment and opens up to the monastery church. The stage side is closed to provide shelter for the performers.

The music pavilion measures 20 by 20 meters and can be erected in approximately 5 hours by a specialized assembly crew. The remarkable A-frames function as a lever to make a save assembly and disassembly possible.

Textile architecture projects

The covering of a courtyard, canopies or stadiums… Tentech is part of the building team when textile and complex geometric shapes are used in new or existing architecture. Often we are responsible for a specific part of the design. In dialogue with the architect, contractor and client, we achieve an optimal contribution.

The design…

Our designs are characterized by sculptural quality and clean detailing, along with requirements of the location and usage of the structure. Combined they result into strong architectural concepts, in which aesthetics goes hand in hand with safe usage.

…and more

Our work doesn’t end with the realization of the technical design. We focus on all aspects of the design and production process that have an impact on textile architecture. Therefore, we are involved with all phases of the design process: from project definition, composition and preliminary design to the technical design, quotation, workshop drawings and maintenance. Supervising production, translating design into tailor made cutting patterns and connections, and assistance in the search and selection of the right market participants, are also part of our services. In our view, this is part of ‘modern craftsmanship’.
